"Lewd and sophisticated and full of chuckles!" -L.A. Herald Examiner

Michael Palin (A Fish Called Wanda) teams with Oscar winner Maggie Smith (Gosford Park) in this uproarious comedy in which "the laughs come fast" (Variety) and the upper class becomes furious! Co-starring Denholm Elliott, Pete Postlethwaite and one divine swine, this hilarious comedy is "alive and unruly, [and] the humor keeps boiling up" (Pauline Kael, The New Yorker)!

Life isn't easy in 1947 Yorkshire, where strict post-war rationing is putting the squeeze on the townspeople. But when a married working-class couple (Palin and Smith) discovers that the town's wealthy elite has been secretly fattening up an "illegal" pig for their own selfish gluttony, they hatch an outlandish kidnapping scheme that gives new meaning to the phrase "bringing home the bacon"!
