An ambitious couple and a V.I.P. (Very Important Pig) collide in his outrageous comedy of manners. Due out on Blu0ray on February 8, 2011. During a time of extreme food rationing in England following World War II, one town s upper class bends the rules by illegally fattening a prize pig for a feast to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding. When a timid foot doctor (Michael Palin, A Fish Called Wanda) and his bossy wife (two-time Academy Award winner Maggie Smith, A Room with a View) get wind of the plan, they seize the chance to climb the social ladder by kidnapping the pig…who has a few unpleasant surprises of its own in store. One of the most hilarious, critically-acclaimed British cult comedies of all time, this star-packed satire proves some people will truly do anything to get ahead.
