Fluffy Bunny Tails and Stinking Bishops ... or Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit

In a quaint little English country town, simple people live simple lives and enjoy simple pleasures. Only a few days away, the yearly vegetable festival held at the grandiose Tottington Hall residence is the event of the year, where townspeople gather to show off their grotesquely oversized produce. Yet something small and fluffy has been lurking in the night, stirring up trouble in the veggie patches. Resident pest controllers Wallace and Gromit are ever at the ready to pounce on the long-eared nocturnal predators (humanely of course) and protect the townspeople's crops. Their attempts are nearly thwarted when, after a disastrous attempt at bunny brainwashing, a mysterious monster proves almost unstoppable and threatens to devour all the town's vegetables before the festival. In a climax of classic film motifs and uproarious action, the monster is vanquished, the vegetables and the festival are saved and Wallace and Gromit redeem themselves as heroes.

With voice characterizations by Peter Sallis and oscar winners Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes, a little bit of King Kong, Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, plus romance and intrigue... it's all there. Gromit, Teller to Wallace's Penn, the Yin to Wallace's Yang, and the cheese-craving inventor Wallace are a dynamite duo in this hilarious film. Fast-paced and exhilarating, it is chock full of both subtle humor and laugh-out-loud gags. Fans have waited a long time for this one. And even newcomers to the W&G scene will enjoy this unique brand of animation. It was worth the wait. Nick Park and his team truly went all out to create a gloriously funny spooky adventure. And let me just say... I do like a bit of Gorgonzola.
