OINK is a wonderfully outrageous animated film for young and old that will make you squeal!
Nine-year-old Babs’s idyllic summer break is cut short when her cowboy grandpa from America suddenly shows up and moves into the shack in her back yard. The old boor wins his granddaughter’s heart, however, when he gives her a little pig named Oink as a birthday present. Still, her parents are not amused; they’ll only tolerate the new pet if it goes to obedience school. The parents are not the biggest threat to the cuddly pink animal, though, because the grandfather still has a score to settle at the traditional Sausage King competition.
This film is screended in original version with German voice-over.
Age 6 rating, recommended for ages 6 and up.
