Well, what can I say about this pig that hasn't already been said?

I attended an advanced screening recently in Nashville, TN. I loved John Cleese as the sheep. Steve Buscemi was perfect as Templeton. Thomas Haden Church is so funny. He played his crow like Lowell Mather from "Wings". This guy can play the perfect moron. Dakota Fanning just gets better with each role. She will be a hot property for some time to come. She may not ever achieve "Tom Cruise level" stardom, but she is extremely talented.
I could not believe how many people cried. The cast really did a great job of making the audience CARE about the characters.
Children and adults will enjoy this film. There is plenty of humor to offset the tragic elements of the story.
