Movie Info

In this outing from Aardman Animation, Wallace has converted his home into a granary complete with a fully functional, old fashioned windmill (patent pending) on the roof, and as a result "Top Bun" has become one of the hottest bakeries in town. But all is not well in the neighborhood, because more than a dozen local bakers have gone missing in the last few months alone. Now, as Wallace falls head over heels for former Bake-O-Lite bread girl Piella Bakewell (voice of Coronation Street star Sally Lindsay), Gromit attempts to solve the case of the missing bakers before his hapless master becomes the latest dough-roller to vanish without a trace. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

All Critics (2)

Even if the results do not quite live up to [Wallce and Gromit's] best work, "A Matter of Loaf and Death" is nevertheless another fine mess, loaded with droll dialogue and amusing sight gags.

was just as good as the original shorts and film

Really excitement, funny and adventure with laughs and some scenes do look familiar like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Psycho (Gromit enters in local celebrity Piella Bakewell's house) and Aliens (Piella vs her poddle, Fluffles in the bulldozer). Award-winning director Nick Park created his much loved claymation characters to more effective short format than his latest three Wallace & Gromit short films.

The bumbling cheese lover and his canine side kick return once again in this, the highest rated TV show on British TV this Christmas. This time they tangle with a bread hating serial killer and it's pretty much a case of more of the same. Unfortunately it's nowhere near as inventive or surreal as the earlier outings, but it still has plenty of amusing sight gags and slapstick combined with cringe inducing puns. Although it's never really laugh out loud funny, the animation is as top notch as always, and when the characters are seen in extreme close up, you can even see the fingerprints of the animators embedded in the clay; this is an example of the kind of care and attention that plasticky computer generated cartoons can never reproduce. And where else can you see a scene that combines homages to both the original Adam West Batman film AND Aliens?!
