Geraldine Elmhurst Liddle - Deen to her friends - is up against five other contestants for the $2 million jackpot on the game show "Bring Home the Bacon!". News of her upcoming appearance on the show takes her small New Brunswick hometown by storm. She practices and studies for the show, but her friends and family just assume she's going to win. Even her younger sisters Rose and Greta and her friend Tina - her "three little piggies" as they are referred to on the show who are supposed to answer any question she cannot - don't study on the assumption that Deen will do all the work. In addition to her three little piggies, her friends and family let her know what they could use with her winnings. Beyond what happens on the show, Deen's notoriety from this event brings out some skeletons from the Elmhurst family closet. Written by Huggo

Now titled Geraldine's Fortune or is that the other way around?
19 September 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was just in the first ever audience for this film and it was a pleasure to be a part of that. It was a clever comedy that made use of Jane Curtin's talents in the title role. Backed up well by her zany family and friends - Geraldine (Deen) is off to play in a TV game show and has to appoint 3 little piggies among her friends and family. Deen has become a celebrity in town and all are after her for how she'll share the wealth if she wins. In the meantime she deals with a "fashionable" teenage daughter and jealous family (and a mysterious missing sister) and friends suffering their own difficulties (Sheila McCarthy plays Tina who is caring for an aged mother-in-law with some very hysterical scenes). It was a movie that you wondered early on if there would be more than the odd chuckle but as things moved along it ended up being a fairly funny, feel-good movie despite some heavy subject matter.
