Wallace and Gromit Return

October 26th, 2005 | by Sqotty |

Wallace and Gromit in Curse of the Were-Rabbit, the long awaited feature film chronicling their adventures has them running a new business: Anti-Pesto, humane pest control. The name has a nice ring to it.

Gromit has placed Wallace on a strict diet that, to Wallace’s chagrin, does not include cheese. In an attempt to combat his cravings for his favorite food, Wallace builds a mind-altering device to change his thought patterns. However, before he tests it out, he is called by her Ladyship of the village to solve her rabbit problem before the giant vegetable competition, which is a few days off. Faced with literally hundreds of cotton-tails, he uses a device much like a vacuum to round up all of the pesky critters.

As the number of rabbits that they are keeping locked up in their basement increases, Wallace turns on his creative juices to find a more long-term solution to keeping all of the bunnies locked up. He decides to try his mind-altering device to convince a test bunny that vegetables are bad. And, of course, he decides to supercharge the effect with rays from a full moon.

The results are, of course, hilarious.

The story line is well thought out, the animation is superb, the dialogue and onscreen antics will have you laughing, and there is also a tribute to a classic film of the ’80s that makes the whole film worth while.

Wallace and Gromit in Curse of the Were-Rabbit is a delightful Halloween treat, ad well worth the long wait since they appeared in A Close Shave.
