In retrospect, the film is entertaining but not as impressive as its successors

Audience Reviews for A Grand Day Out With Wallace and Gromit

the earliest film i remember seeing i always was intrigued by stop motion and this film expanded on my attraction to it. To me my favorite character in the whole Wallace and Gromit franchise is Gromit just because you can just look at his face and you can tell whats going through his head even though he doesn't talk its all in the eyebrows and body language and to me that's what makes everything about Wallace and gromit fun for everyone, young & old.

Wallace & Gromit?s first outing is brilliant. Is low on dialogue and the animation is a bit rough around the edges but it?s a classic.
