Movie Info

In partnership with the Nisonger Center at the Ohio State University, Gateway Film Center will now offer monthly Sensory Friendly Screenings for families, children, or any other individuals living with autism or other developmental disabilities. These screenings offer a more relaxed and comfortable movie-going experience with auditorium lighting kept at a higher level and normal audio kept at a lower level. On the second Saturday of every month the Gateway Film Center will screen a first-run family film or a classic family film from its library. All proceeds will benefit the Nisonger Center. Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit, set out to discover the mystery behind the garden sabotage that plagues their village and threatens the annual giant vegetable growing contest.

The final work justifies every meticulous, monastic, masochistic effort.

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.

Not all the plot points make sense, but they don't really need to.

There is something for everybody here: an unholy mixture of Philip Larkin and Bruce Wayne.

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.
