The third Wallace and Gromit film ... manages to top its predecessor with a series of even more impressively staged sight gags and action sequences.

A comedic gem. A short with more laughs than most full-length films.

Another great Wallace & Gromit film, the introduction of Shaun the Sheep was warmly received in my household.
