Pigs is a 2007 Canadian teen comedy directed by Karl DiPelino. The title refers to the slang meaning of the word pig, i.e. (in this case) an egoist : someone who disregards other's feelings and acts out self interest.

Plot

Ladies' man and soon to be college graduate Miles (Jefferson Brown) is a player who keeps journals over his "conquests". His best friend Cleaver (Darryn Lucio) thinks Miles should join a sort of bet. The bet evolves around Miles sleeping with girls depending on their surnames first letter, thus "completing" the alphabet before he graduates. Already having slept with a number of girls with different first-letters in their surnames, Miles stands a good chance of being able to succeed. It all boils down to whether he can find a and sleep with a girl whose surname starts with an X. Miles's roommate Ben (Christopher Elliott) however will prove to be a problem for Miles, since he has got a crush on Gabrielle (Melanie Marden), Miles's target. At the end of the bet, Cleaver tries to push Miles even harder, since the pot has grown to 30,000 dollars. Miles, however, has fallen for Garbielle, whom he thinks is different from every girl he's ever met. They start dating for a while, and Ben becomes more and more jealous. Later on, Ben decides to ruin Miles's chances of sleeping with Gabrielle and tells Garbielle about the bet, even though Miles has clearly explained that Gabrielle means more to him than the money.
