Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Sunday 18 December 2005

Nick Park is simply brilliant. He is the author and main animator of an impressive variety of cute and cuddly clay characters in the Aardman collection. These range from the chatty chicks in Chicken Run to the tens of animals in the Creature Comforts series. But mainly, Nick Park is renowned world-wide for the hilarious duo, Wallace and Gromit.

Their previous adventures had forced Wallace into some rather strange electronic trousers and Gromit, his loyal and trusting dog, into some sheep-shearing exercises. Now, the team has to unravel the mystery behind the destruction of gardens in their village. These acts of vandalism could not possibly occur at a worst moment. Indeed, the vegetable growing contest is set to happen very soon and it would be a disaster is the vegetables were to disappear, eaten by what can only be a monster… Hence, the townsfolk call on our inventor and his faithful dog to help out.

In The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromit have launched a “humane” pest-control agency called Anti-Pesto… Who best then, to deal with all this mess? The following adventures are hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable for people of all ages… Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter, who were asked to give voices to Victor Quartermaine and Lady Tottington, would not think otherwise.

The film is a work of great genius which took over five years to animate. Very British isn’t it? There are plenty of amusing references which you should work out for yourself… But interestingly enough, a number of these are fairly sexual… And some people say it’s just for kids!

Wallace and Gromit are as usual: absolutely cracking!
