Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Alas, Gordy is no Charlotte's Web. It's not even a threat to Mr. Ed."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"It is possible that some children will be tickled at the very idea of a talking pig, even one as bland as Gordy. They will probably be children who have never seen any movie, ever."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"This little piggy goes whee!-whee!-whee! all the way home. But will parents go for Gordy? Not in a pig's eye!"
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Daily News
"Cute to the point of nausea, Gordy includes every barnyard cliché in the book."
‑ Frances Lass, Radio Times
"Hardly hogs Babe's spotlight."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, StaciWilson.com
"Methinks there is something else ahoof here, since no one could be dim-witted enough to swallow this cinematic goulash without taking a step back from the trough first."
‑ John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune
"Gordy is a sweet little movie, ideal for youngsters and easy to take for parents, about the adventures of a pig so adorable that he could turn us all into vegetarians."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Fortunately, Gordy turns to fun whenever it wallows in too much goofiness."
‑ Roger Hurlburt, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Talking pig adventure with a bit of a scare."
‑ Tracy Moore, Common Sense Media
"The film tosses a few mild, satirical darts at public relations and advertising, but otherwise it's strictly hokum from the heartland."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Examiner
"Gordy is a pleasant trifle aimed squarely at audiences in search of squeaky-clean family entertainment."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"I can't recommend it for people like me, but there are many other kinds of people in the world, some of them children who believe that pigs can talk."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Try the other white meat -- Babe."
‑ , TV Guide
"Insufferable BABE knockoff"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"This may have sounded like a cute idea on paper, but as kids pictures go this is the worst to come along in memory."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
