OMP (oh my pig!)
Where has the movie been all of my piggy life? I found this movie, 3 Pigs and a Baby, on Netflix last night. It was released in March of 2008 and I *just* found it. Okay, I’ll give you that. I wasn’t born in 2008 but still. Any movie about pigs, that seems to be right up my alley, don’t you think?
For movie night last night, we all watched this movie and I have to say it was hilarious! I’m not sure who laughed the hardest, me, mom, dad or the purr things. Have you seen this?! I give it five out of five snorts. It keeps you on your hooves with laughs, turns and twists.
The movie starts with part of the ending and then tweaks back to how it got to this point. You are asking what point? Well in the opening shot, the 3 little pigs are all tied together, hanging upside down over a boiling pot of water in the wolve warehouse. That’s a scary way to start the movie huh?
Then the story flashes back to what got the 3 little pigs to this situation. It goes through the original story.
The big bad wolf goes to Sandy Pig’s house made of hay. He tells Sandy Pig to open the door. Sandy Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin. The big wolf then huffs and puffs and blows the house down. Sandy Pig then runs to his brother Richard Pig’s house.
The big bad wolf then goes to Richard Pig’s house made out of sticks. He tells Richard Pig to open the door. Richard Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin. The big wolf then huffs and puffs and blows the house down. Richard Pig and Sandy Pig then run to their brother Mason Pig’s house.
The big bad wolf then goes to Mason Pig’s house made out of bricks. He tells Mason Pig to open the door. Mason Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin. The big wolf then huffs and puffs and blows the house down. But wait a minute, he can’t because the house is made of bricks. The big bad wolf is determined to get inside of the house of bricks so he climbs up to the chimney. His plan is to go down the chimney and thus he will be inside of the brick house. In the meantime, the 3 little pigs build a fire. Well, you can guess what happens. That big bad wolf won’t be huffing and puffing anymore – snorts.
But, that’s when the story takes a huge left turn and becomes a snort of a completely different movie. In fact, this movie has more twists and turns than a roadtrip in the mountains. Those big bad wolves are not giving up in getting those oinkers. They plan on infiltrating into the house of bricks by leaving a baby wolf in a basket at the doorstep in hopes that Mason, Richard and Sandy Pig adopt him. After some convincing, the 3 pigs adopt little “Lucky” as their own. Lucky has no clue that he’s a pig, he just knows he’s different.
Lucky goes to school at Pigville Academy and all is fine until he begins to be a teenager. Then he finds out he’s adopted – snorts. He learns that he is a wolf raised as a pig and he was adopted by Mason, Richard and Sandy Pig. Uh-oh Houston we have a problem.
Lucky runs away and finds the big bad wolves. They convince him, “To be a wolf , you have to be head to toe in fur, claws, and a… meat eater of gulp – PIG.” Oh no… this is not going to end well. They convince him that he needs to hide the key to the brick house under the mat on the harvest moon so they can take care of things… things that are a secret that they can’t talk about. Lucky agrees – thud piggy down! And later the big bad wolves convince Lucky that there will be a surprise party for his dads so he has to leave the key under the mat.
The Harvest moon comes and by this time, Richard and Sandy Pig have re-built their homes and moved out of Mason’s brick home. Mason and Lucky get into an argument and Lucky rides off on his motorcycle but not until after putting the key under the mat. And the Harvest Moon – it’s a sign for the big bad wolves to start their hunting season. So here we go again.
The wolves go to Sandy Pig’s house made of hay. They tells Sandy Pig to open the door. Sandy Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin. The wolves huff and puff and blows the house down. Sandy Pig then runs to his brother Richard Pig’s house.
The wolves then go to Richard Pig’s house made out of sticks. They tell Richard Pig to open the door. Richard Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin. The wolves then huff and puff and blows the house down. Richard Pig and Sandy Pig then run to their brother Mason Pig’s house.
The wolves then go to Mason Pig’s house made out of bricks. They tell Mason Pig to open the door. Mason Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin. The wolves then huff and puff and blows the house down. But wait a minute, he can’t because the house is made of bricks. But wait a minute, why huff and puff when you can just use the key under the mat to get into the house.
So here we are, right back to where the movie started. The 3 little pigs are tied up and hanging over a huge pot of boiling water. This is when the pigs find out that Lucky was planted in their home to get the pigs eventually in time.
At the last minute before the 3 little pigs are dunked into the hot boiling water, Lucky comes flying through the warehouse window on his motorcycle and saves his three dad’s. Of course the wolves aren’t happy about this and they take after the 3 little pigs who are headed to the brick house. A fight of sorts begins and things go a little hectic until Lucky makes a big speech.
After Lucky’s speech, the Pig Wolf Pact is signed dedicating pigs and wolves to a life of peace, love and understanding from here on out. And Lucky, he was lucky. Not only did he get three fathers with the 3 little pigs, he also got the adopted family of the wolves. All is good again in Pigville.
What a sweet and wonderful movie. I must buy this for my collection so that I can watch it over and over. It touched my little piggy heart and made me smile and snort. You gotta watch this movie!
