Movie Info

Eccentric inventor Wallace (voice of Peter Sallis) and his faithful if often perplexed dog Gromit are back in their first feature-length adventure from animator Nick Park. Wallace and Gromit have launched a new business venture just in time for a major gardening competition in their neighborhood of West Wallaby. "Anti-Pesto" is a humane pest-relocation service in which Wallace and Gromit capture rabbits and other critters who have been eating the produce from local gardens and give them new homes somewhere else. Business has been going well, and when the woman hosting the garden show, Lady Tottington (voice of Helena Bonham Carter), discovers a massive tribe of rabbits has been making a mess of her garden, she calls in Wallace and Gromit to move the bunnies elsewhere. Wallace is quite taken with Lady Tottington, but he's not the only one -- Victor Quartermaine (voice of Ralph Fiennes) is a slick but arrogant upper-class type who wants to win Lady Tottington's hand (and fortune) and is convinced he can do a better job capturing the rabbits than Wallace. However, Wallace's attempts to brainwash the rabbits away from veggies using his latest invention has disastrous results, and soon Wallace has to deal with a beastly bunny as well as a heavily-armed Quartermaine. Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit followed Park's previous film with the duo, A Close Shave, by ten years, and was produced after Park broke through to mainstream success with the feature Chicken Run.

    With the great Wallace and Gromit at the helm, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is both wonderfully witty and delightfully eccentric that appeals to nearly everyone - in a good way.

    A great voyage for W and G to the big screen that translates their charm and gives a nice laugh when the mystery is revealed.

    I simply loved this film to bits, I would give all the comedy awards to this film. I love everything about it, there's not a single flaw which I could find. Nothing beats a good British comedy.

    I don't understand how this one Best Animated Feature at the Oscars, but it still is a great film. I really enjoyed this, and its hilarious beyond belief. The characters are great. But the problem was the plot, nobody wants to see the famous duo of Wallace and Groit fight a Were rabit, and that was my main problem, the story was quite ridiculous, other than that, great movie.
