-- Formula family movie in which the title's talking piglet sets off to rescue his family from the slaughterhouse, is helped along the way by the daughter (Kristy Young) of a country musician (Doug Stone) and eventually becomes a national celebrity before resuming his original quest. Directed by Mark Lewis, the busy cornpone narrative depends entirely upon the willingness to accept the fantasy of a cute talking animal, something youngsters may find more congenial than their elders. Some comic menace and threatening images of a sausage factory. (A-I) (G)
