Wallace and Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

It's been over four months since we all went to a movie at the local theater. This time it was to see the latest animation/claymation work from Nick Park, released through Dreamworks SKG.

Minor spoilers ahead. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Before the Wallace and Gromit film, was also an excellent short animated movie featuring the four penguins from the Madagascar film. It also features a small dog whose "worrying" abilities make our little doggie look positively comatose. Lots of sight gags and physical humour, the latter of which gave Duncan the giggles through most of the movie.

Then onto the main movie. For those of you who have seen any of the Wallace and Gromit shorts, this was more of that, only longer (85 minutes worth). I noticed there was more humour of a sexual nature then previous W&G movies, and that it would have just gone over the heads of all the little kiddies watching it.

I also saw the Ebert and Roper review from about a week ago. Ebert liked it; Roper didn't. Not enough laugh-out-loud humour for him. (He also mumbled something about British humour). That's not what we found. There were lots of places where the audience were really into it. It even got a round of applause (justly deserved) at the end. We certainly gave it three thumbs up.

And yet another DVD to buy when it comes out.
