More About Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit - Peter Sallis
 
 
 
Overview

Eccentric, cheese-loving English inventor Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) and his trusted silent canine companion, Gromit, have a thriving business in their garden-destroying varmint-elimination service, named Anti-Pesto. Together they prepare for the upcoming Giant Vegetable Growing contest. Wallace even has a potential paramour in wealthy client Lady Tottington (Helena Bonham Carter), a vegetable enthusiast with a severe rabbit problem. Unfortunately, the tight-coiffed, slick-talking hunter Victor Quartermaine (Ralph Fiennes) also has designs on the lady, and he's not giving up easily. When a giant rabbit terrorizes the townsfolk and begins devouring some prizewinning veggies, another dimension is added to the existing competition between Wallace and Victor, and the outcome will be the talk of the town! Following up the success of 2000's CHICKEN RUN, master clay animator Nick Park has given Wallace and Gromit--the stars of three celebrated shorts--their own feature, and with thrilling results. The eye-popping animation comes along with appealing character design and beautifully detailed environments, and we are also given an engaging, multi-layered story populated with characters to care about. As with Park's previous successes, the result has a cross-generational appeal that will undoubtedly age in the timeless manner of all great entertainment.

Reviews:
"The animation is a marvel....The world of Wallace and Gromit is one of the few genuinely eccentric places left in the movies, a place where lumpy, doughy characters achieve a peculiar dignity..." - 10/05/2005 New York Times, p.E1


3 stars out of 5 -- "Park is a master of Claymation and dry, understated wit....Don't even try to figure out how Park can move plasticine figures around and achieve visual and slapstick miracles. Just enjoy." - 10/20/2005 Rolling Stone, p.90


"Charming and droll with shrewdly chosen voices....[An] adorable exercise in whimsy..." - 10/07/2005 USA Today, p.4E


"[I]t is both welcome and astonishing to see how successful Park's unlikely pairing of his own idiosyncratic sensibility with the most labor-intensive form of animation has become....[The film] retains the clever, one-of-a-kind sensibility that made its shorter predecessors so delightful." - 10/05/2005 Los Angeles Times, p.E1


"The movie rollicks with visual slapstick, puns, and drive-by joke-cluster bombs that fall on young and adult viewers alike with such good aim..." -- Grade: A - 10/14/2005 Entertainment Weekly, p.124


"Immensely funny, intelligently silly and beautifully made....The protagonists are solid cartoon types absent from cinema since Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck..." - 12/01/2005 Sight and Sound, p.82


"A wonderful confection of slapstick and horror ingredients, WERE-RABBIT enhances the W&G universe as it continues to grow in stop-motion complexity and craftsmanship." - 03/01/2006 Premiere, p.109


"[A] treasure trove of cleverness. And in its old-school claymation, the film is closer to the endearing Gumby reels of yore than today's sterile Pixar productions." - 02/23/2006 Rolling Stone, p.74
