I haven't watched this movie yet. It's a gift for my great grandchildren (twins) who will turn 1 on Dec. 1. I have seen other movies with Wallace and Gromit & they were funny. My grandchildren watched them over & over. Now the next generation can enjoy these two characters.

Wallace & Gromit: Giggles Galore!
It wouldn't be fair to start this review without admitting I'm a whole-hearted fan. Nick Park's wild imaginiative creatures captured my heart the first time I saw them in "Wrong Trousers".<br><br>One of the things that makes them so loveable, is their clumsy but well meaning hearts of gold. Wallace, an inventor is upstaged by his incredibly clever pooch, Gromit. In this film, the two run "Anti-pest-o" humane pest control.<br><br>Things are going swimmingly until Wallace decides they could solve their storage problem (they've been keeping all the bunnies they rid people of...) by brainwahing the bunnies to dislike vegetables. That's when everything goes awry!<br><br>Suddenly a giant Were-Rabbit threatens the towns Giant Veggie contest and Wallace's new-found romance.The best part of any Wallace and Grommit adventure are the kooky inventions of Wallace (think Chitty Chitty Bang Bang here)and this adventure is no different.<br><br>There's plenty of extras to check out on the DVD as well, including deleted scenes and the story of how Wallace and Gromit grew from Frank Parks imaginiation into the stars they are today.<br><br>These hand-crafted clay figures may takes years to film, but only moments to capture your heart!<br><br>You'll love this one.Read full review

Wallace and Gromit are great characters, and their humorous friendship remains the same in this film.<br><br>The addition of some off-color humor does make it a bit of a disappointment, but for the most part it is still a clean family movie that will have you laughing your head off!! Four stars

Not to mention here the rare distinction Nick Park enjoys of being the only animator ever whose 2 films("Creature Comforts" and "A grand day out") were nominated in the same category, same year(1991) for the best short film oscar, so he could take home only one for his groundbreaking masterpiece "Creature Comforts'.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is totally awesome. The animation is first rate, with lots of details in every scene, who would've thought you could do so much with a lump of clay. A lot of fun to watch and well worth buying.
