Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

I just got back from taking my three boys to see Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and all I can say is thank dog for Nick Park, the creative force behind the movie.

This movie was just absolutely fantastic. Possibly the best movie I've seen in months.

I've been a big fan of W&G for years and my family and I have worn out several VCR tapes of the three W&G shorts over the years, so, of course, I had high expectations for this movie. Even going in with those high expectations, the movie surpassed them with ease.

When the familiar W&G theme music started, I actually got goose bumps running up and down my arms.

It's obvious that it took five years of hard, backbreaking work to produce this masterpiece. Every frame is full of loving details for the devoted fan and the casual viewer. Gromit's face is more expressive than the best Hollywood live actors. He's able to convey more meaning in a lowered eyebrow than most actors can provide with their entire body.

The plot revolves around Wallace & Gromit running a humane rabbit disposal service called Anti-Pesto. They're hired by the people of the village to protect their beloved backyard gardens from becoming rabbit food. Being the nice guys they are, W&G don't kill the pesky varmits, but, rather, keep them housed and fed and out of the way.

Through a series of misadventures, a were-rabbit is set loose on the community, endangering the village's traditional giant vegetable competition. I gotta say, the scenes of the giant were-rabbit howling and the bunnies of the field responding in kind were hilarious.

You must see this movie.
