 My Thoughts

It's never easy moving to a new town, but a teacup pig can help cheer anyone up. Talia is upset that her parents moved her away from her friends, but after finding Arlo, a little pig who had run away from the circus, things start to look up. At first, Arlo's loud belching gets Talia into trouble, but soon the whole family is on board with keeping him away from the circus where he was so unhappy. Then, in a crazy twist, the family gets pulled into the theft of a priceless Ming vase. Even  more surprising is how Arlo comes to the rescue.

I always love movies with real animals in them, and this is the best pig movie I've seen since Charlotte's Web. My four-year-old was especially fond of Arlo and was hysterical every time he burped. My older kids also got a kick out of the fact that Drake Bell was the voice of Arlo, since they were huge fans of Drake & Josh back when it was on. This is definitely a fun film the whole family can enjoy.
