Movie Info

It's 'vege-mania' in Wallace and Gromit's neighborhood, and our two enterprising chums are cashing in with their humane pest-control outfit, "Anti-Pesto." With only days to go before the annual Giant Vegetable Competition, business is booming, but Wallace & Gromit are finding out that running a "humane" pest control outfit has its drawbacks as their West Wallaby Street home fills to the brim with captive rabbits. Suddenly, a huge, mysterious, veg-ravaging "beast" begins attacking the town's

The finished article is so CGI-like that you wonder whether all that organic stop-frame stuff was necessary. Sorry, chaps.

Despite its vocal distractions, this clay-animation comedy adventure managed to dazzle me with its sheer audacity and inventiveness.

It's slightly amusing and I'd say when it comes out on video or if you catch it on cable, but to rush out to theaters...

The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, featuring his heroic man-and-dog duo, Wallace and Gromit, is Park at his sublimely silly best.

It's not as good as the Oscar-winning shorts The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave, but it is good.

Park and co have shaped a wonderfully warm and fuzzy family adventure out of old horror clichà (C)s.

September 1, 2008 Full Review Source: Film4

Without question, both the best non live-action film and best family film since last year's The Incredibles.

January 15, 2008 Full Review Source: Dark Horizons
Dark Horizons

Instead of vainly pursuing today's latest trends, only to see them turn into tomorrow's embarrassments, Park and co. fall back on the values of the past, preferring substance and craft to the fleetingly voguish.

It's a one-joke premise, but part of Nick Park's madness/genius is the skill and detail with which he approaches it.

With Were-Rabbit, Mr. Park establishes Gromit as the best animated canine character since Snoopy.

The comedy is never indulged at the expense of the plot, which flies off in genuinely unexpected directions, culminating in a boundlessly inventive funfair chase sequence.

Gromit...could teach ninety percent of the actors working today something. He can say more in a glance than most actors can using their entire range of tools.

Audience Reviews for Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

a brilliant idea for a wallace and gromit film

As in the original shorts, the little details are what makes Wallace & Gromit's full length movie so much fun to watch. It's 'imported' humor may not be for everyone, and some of its gags may seem very odd for those unfamiliar with the history of the characters, Wallace & Gromit is pretty much exactly what would happen if everyone at Pixar suddenly became very, very British.

There are a lot of moments in Were-rabbit where I found the characters and the plot itself ridiculous and boring and it wasn't as good as I thought it would be considering the critical reception. The animation is amazing but I couldn't really make an emotional connection with the characters but it's great to look at and the little moments in this film made me reconsider writing a bad review.
