After another ingenious evil plan fails, the wolves come up with another wise evil plan to capture the pigs. The wolves' plan is to put a baby wolf at their door so that the pigs will bring it in their house and raise it as their own, and then after it grows up it will become a wolf and feel out of place living a pig's life and then at this transitional stage they can befriend the wolf and convince him to leave the key under the welcome mat so they can get in.Well, the baby is dropped at the door, the pigs take him in as planned, and the plan is a go, but can the wolf after all these years bring himself to betray the pigs that raised him as their own flesh and blood no matter what anybody else thought of them?
A very funny movie in the same irreverent vein as "Hoodwinked" and the less successful "Happily N'Ever After"
I didn't expect much from this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised by it - I've certainly enjoyed it more than, say "Bee Movie", a much more flashier and expensive animated cartoon.
Take the "Three Little Pigs" story and twisting it around for a modern audience, add a few sly references to "Dr. Strangelove" and not-so-subtle jabs at several other film classics (including the "Three Men and..." series) and mix just enough action and suspense to keep both children and adults happy about it - and you get a winner! The "bohemian" pig, playing "Silo" (think "Halo" for/with animals!) incessantly and using "dude" as his every third word was especially funny. I also enjoyed how the filmmakers openly admitted their lack of a big budget, by making one of the characters literally slap another over the idea of a musical number.
This film was fun to watch, and I hope to see more output from the talented crew that put it together. Bravo! This is definitely a keeper!
