The subject matter strains under the weight of a full-length film, even one that runs only 84 minutes. Much of the running time feels padded out.

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...

It's a surprising misstep from the people who gave us Chicken Run.

There is a flaccid, overextended feel to the antics, as if the characters had been stretched like Silly Putty 'til they cried uncle.

There seems to be a fairly rabid cult following for the quirky claymation characters of Wallace and Gromit, but count me out. This is a chaotic mess of a film.

Wallace and Gromit is clever but rarely funny. It's too quaint, too perfectly "fine."

Like the Looney Tunes gang before them, Wallace and Gromit are better taken in small doses.

When Nick Park stretches his claymation to feature-film length, it gets a little thin.

Eminently worth seeing, even if it leaves you wishing it were as consistently inventive as Aardman's first feature, Chicken Run.

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

The humor is sophisticated but sweet, and the clever references are not the only thing about the movie for adults to enjoy.

A silly and cuddly dab of Silly Putty animation from the folks who gave us Chicken Run but who made their reputations doing short films about a daft Englishman and his dog.

...it may be possible to resist this lovely movie on the grounds that it is too British, such resistance dissolves when the lights go down and the screen begins to glow.

Wallace and Gromit are arguably the two most delightful characters in the history of animation.

It's one of 2005's few non-live action feature capable of engaging all members of the family.

Who could resist a movie in which a garden gnome holds the front line in high-tech home security?

Every kind of funny: sophisticated wit, sly parody, outrageous puns, this-is- what-pause- buttons-on- DVD-players- are-made for detail, and fall-down, lose-the- toupee farce.
