Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit ★★★½ 2005 (G)
Will appeal to adult audiences more than a stop-action animation film would at first seem to warrant. But don't worry, there's still plenty for the kiddies. The dynamic duo is faced with the responsibility of guarding the gardens for miles around in preparation for the annual Giant Vegetable Fete. But rabbits are eating all of the vegetables! Inventor Wallace comes up with a humane way to solve the pesky bunny issue, but it's more complicated than that. The painstakingly millimeter by millimeter claymation is impressive enough. That the characters manage to be expressive, and hilarious, is sheer brilliance. 85m/C DVD .
