No excerpt available.
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.
Audience Reviews for Wallace and Gromit in 'A Matter of Loaf and Death'
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?!
