Nothing but fun and laughs here! I was a little concerned at first because of my perception of the old “Claymation” type of movies. You know, like the old show “Davey and Goliath” or even “Mr. Bill”. But this film “Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” is top notch in animation (from animator Nick Park of Chicken Run fame) and humor.
Our heroes, Wallace ( an inventor) and his faithful sidekick dog Gromit have started a business involving rabbits, more specifically the removal of such animals. With a gardening competition coming up in town they are very popular. But into our story comes a huge monster of a rabbit that is terrifying everyone and is ruining everyones prescious gardens. Wallace and bad guy Victor Quartermaine seem to be after the same woman, a goofy haired garden show host, Lady Tottington Tempers flare, evil plots are rampid and mystery is in the air as everyone wonders where this Bigfoot of Rabbits came from.
At first I thought this movie was for younger aged children, but as we went along I realized that children and adults of any age would enjoy watching. I have children of all ages and I found that the teenagers were having more fun with this film than even the smaller kids. There is a lot of humor that is intended for an older viewer that goes over the little ones heads. The heavy English accents were at times maybe a bit hard to understand for the younger audience. The odd voice of Wallace by Peter Sallis was fun along with great voice-overs by Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham-Carter made this film very enjoyable. I don’t think you will be disappointed by adding this one to your rental queue or picking this one up for your family collection.
