Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

on October 07, 2005 by Shlomo Schwartzberg
Finally, the wonderful Wallace & Gromit get their own feature film, and it's every bit as clever and imaginative as the award-winning shorts "(A Grand Day Out," "A Close Shave") that first introduced the claymation duo. This time out, eccentric inventor and pest control expert Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) and his faithful dog Gromit contend with a mysterious creature that is consuming the town's vegetables and threatening to destroy the 500-year-old annual Giant Vegetable Competition. Their efforts to uncover the beast's identity lead to all manner of wild, loopy adventures.

Like Nick Park's previous "Chicken Run," "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" references classic movies to great effect and, as a bonus, offers Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter, voicing a Great White British hunter and a dotty lady, respectively. "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" is a unique delight. Voiced by Peter Sallis, Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes. Directed by Nick Park and Steve Box. Written by Nick Park, Steve Box, Bob Baker and Mark Burton. Produced by Peter Lord, David Sproxton, Nick Park, Claire Jennings and Carla Shelley. A Dreamworks release. Animated comedy. Rated G. Running time: 85 min
