An ambitious couple and a V.I.P. (Very Important Pig) collide in his outrageous comedy of manners! During a time of extreme food rationing in England following World War II, one town’s upper class bends the rules by illegally fattening a prize pig for a feast to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding. When a timid foot doctor (Michael Palin, A Fish Called Wanda) and his bossy wife (two-time Academy Award winner* Maggie Smith, A Room with a View) get wind of the plan, they seize the chance to climb the social ladder by kidnapping the pig…who has a few unpleasant surprises of its own in store. One of the most hilarious, critically-acclaimed British cult comedies of all time, this star-packed satire proves some people will truly do anything to get ahead!

Love everything Maggie Smith is in. Especially with Michael Palin. I have waited for a long time to get this movie from 30 years ago at a price that I could afford. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Alan Lau

A great cast wasted in a bad farce. Tries for Monty Python but fails. With similar cast go for " the misionary"Published 14 months ago by Jose Luis Cocho Roldan
