Product Description

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.

A decade after their last hilarious short, the Oscar-winning A Close Shave, Claymation wonders Wallace and Gromit return for a full-length adventure. Daffy scientist Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) and his heroic dog Gromit are doing well with their business, Anti-Pesto, a varmint-hunting outfit designed to keep their English town safe from rabbits chomping on prized vegetables. Wallace meets Lady Tottington (Helena Bonham Carter), who appreciates Wallace's humane way of dealing with rabbits (courtesy of the Bun-Vac 6000), and sets up a rivalry with the gun-toting Victor Quartermaine (Ralph Fiennes, enjoying himself more than ever). Creator Nick Park, with co-director/writer Steve Box, delivers a story worthy of the 85-minute running time, although it stretches the act a bit; the formula plays better shorter, but the literally hand-crafted film is a joy to watch. Taking a chapter from classic horror films, a giant were-rabbit is soon on the prowl, and the town is up in arms, what with the annual vegetable contest close at hand. (Anyone who's seen the previous three shorts knows who saves the day.) Never content to do something simply when the extravagant will do, W&G's lives are filled with whimsical Rude Goldberg-style devices, and the opening number showcasing their alarm system is pure Aardman Animation at its finest. Even though there's a new twist here--a few mild sight gags aimed at adults--this G-rated film will delight young and old alike as Park, like team Pixar, seems incapable of making anything but an outstanding film. --Doug Thomas

Wallace and Gromit and their creator Nick Park need no introduction. With their three shorts 'A grand day out', "The wrong trousers" and "A close shave' they've won hearts of everyone around the globe. With all three films winning countless awards, including 2 oscars, and accolades worldwide, Wallace & Gromit has become a global phenomenon. 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'. With his exceptional talent in the painstaking art of claymation, Nick Park has taken stop motion to newer heights with "Creature Comforts', "Wallace & Gromit' and his first feature film "Chicken Run".

"Wallace & Gromit:Curse of the wererabbit" is the highly anticipated first full length feature involving Wallace and his brainy canine companion Gromit. Its a dream come true for all the fans around the world who have been expecting their favourite characters on silver screen for a long time.

In "Curse of the wererabbit", a vegetable guzzling "monster' is on the verge of spoiling the giant vegetable competition organised by Lady Tottington and only wallace and gromit can save the day now. Nick Park has remained faithful to the characterisations and followed the same trend which w&g is known for. New adventure, few more amazing inventions, more new characters, new circumstances, more suspense but same old British flavour, feel and charm...W&G first feature is surely a winner. Those familiar with "King Kong", "Jaws" and other Hitchcock films will enjoy the spoof and occasional references more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything on DVD is CLOSED-CAPTIONED!!! February 7, 2006
By IcedTea
EVERYTHING ON DVD including the deleted scenes, "Stage Fright", "How to Build a Bunny", interviews with Nick Park/Steve Box, and the Aardman documentary....ALL of the special features (the movie itself, too) are CLOSED-CAPTIONED! WOW!

Park and Box's commentaries appear as subtitles while the movie runs with Closed-Captions. I suggest watching movie again with captions turned off on your TV set to follow the subtitled commentaries. (because captions overlap subtitles, y'know)

Sooooo pleased with this DVD as many DVDs don't caption their special features.

THANKS DREAMWORKS and AARDMAN (and whoever else) for caring to caption everything!

From a Deaf family and the Deaf/HOH community, and a Wallace & Gromit Nut.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do you make clay rabbits float? January 17, 2006
...and tumble, and turn, and suspend in mid-air like a lithe feather? I stared in awe at this, wondering how they could have possibly done that. Imagine the camerawork involved. It's possible they could have simply plugged an image into a computer and manipulated it with their CGI programs, but I choose to remain blissfully ignorant of the whole process. For once I'm so enamored that I don't want to know how they did it.

When you get the DVD, which you will because it is that brilliant, you have to pause it at some point and look at a character's face up-close. What are you looking for? Fingerprints. The fingerprints of the claymation artists who move the figurines one frame at a time. These people deserve medals for bravery, or patience, or madness. Heck all three!

I have to confess at this point that I'm a Wallace & Gromit poser; but I do know what a gromit is because I work on my own cars, you have to give me that. I've never seen anything else with Wallace & Gromit except "Curse of the Were-Rabbit." Lord help me, I love them both. It's such a good-natured, joyful little film, and it will satisfy you on just about every level you can think of. You will be entertained, you will laugh, you will feel pathos, you will care about the characters, and you will find some kind of itching deep down where you might wonder about your own world. Ah ha! What a good movie should do!

The plot is thus; Wallace and his trusty sidekick dog Gromit are independent pest removers (read; rabbits), who go about the town removing the little bushy-tailed pests from the gardens of the neighborhood. Business is good; the annual Vegetable Show is coming up, and everyone wants to be prepared.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm Just Crackers About Cheese February 10, 2006
It's tough to fathom a G-rated animated film garnering so much world attention, but there you go. Wallace and Gromit have captured ...something our collective imaginations. Perhaps it's a harkening back to simpler times. Perhaps it's the witticism. Perhaps it's the originality of "claymation" (clay characters shot one painstaking frame after the next). But whatever it is, it works.

Not having seen any previous works by Steve Box and Nick Park (directors), I have no comparisons to draw from with regards to their earlier award-winning claymation movies (A CLOSE SHAVE, 2001). But I can say, without hesitation, that this is a very good film for a couple of reasons.

First was the story. There's never been a "vegetarian" monster before, but now we have one with "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit." This giant fluffy bunny has the strength of ten men and ten-times the appetite, too. Gardens are being destroyed and it's only days before the Giant Vegetable Competition. Wallace and Gromit, founders of the "Anti-Pesto" pest control agency (and they drive a green van, which is just too funny, too, if you know what Pesto looks like), have their hands full. They're basement is already maxed out with rabbits they've caught (they don't kill them, but are humane and take care of their pests). And now this Were-Rabbit problem. What to do?

Second was the character voices. Peter Sallis, British-born stage actor, reprises his role as Wallace, the good-hearted pest control agent with great gadgetry. Gromit the dog, of course, is his trusty mute sidekick who saves Wallace constantly but receives no praise for his work. Helena Bonham Carter plays the voice of Lady Tottington, the love interest of Wallace and the wicked Victor Quartermaine (Hmm, where have I heard that name before?
