5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, timeless and innocent...but packed with great wit., October 14, 2005
When else have I ever been able to write a review where both the words "clever" and "adorable" fit together?

From my perspective as a parent: I just took three boys, ages 3, 7 and 8, to see Wallace and Grommit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit. They all had a great time with it, laughed often and were completely absorbed by the story. There was not one scary or inappropriate thing in this movie for kids. Thumbs up!

From my perspective as an adult: Hilarious, clever, silly, and somehow adorable all at once, just what one would expect from a W&G film but even better, if that's possible. If you haven't been introduced to Nick Park's creations Wallace and Grommit (an uber-inventor and window washer by trade, with his all-too-human dog) before, I urge you to look up the other short movies on Dvd as soon as possible and spend the next few evenings with them. I promise you that you will be surprised and delighted with the quirky Aardman universe, the sly parodies of cinematic clichés, and the perfect attention to little details that went into creating the claymation sets and figures. This is surely the pinnacle of its art form, and a lot of fun for "kids of all ages" to boot.

This new movie, Curse of the Were-Rabbit, continues in the world of W&G, but with a new twist; the pair are now in the business of pest control with the very unique humane policy; they cannot dispose of the marauding garden pests that they capture in the usual manner because Wallace is too soft-hearted, so instead they keep them in cages at their home. Of course this has become a growing problem since the business took off and has been very brisk lately...until Wallace hatches an ingenious plan to change the very nature of rabbitiness, from ravenous vegetable-munchers into...well, we aren't entirely sure. It would seem that something went awry with the latest mind control gadget. Now, there's some kind of giant rabbit monster on the loose and naturally the town is desperate to protect their prize-winning vegetables for the annual Harvest Faire. Can Grommit solve the mystery of the monster's true nature before somebody decides to exact some not-so-humane pest control?

Without a doubt, I am going to rush out and buy this one as soon as it's released on Dvd in order to complete my Nick Park collection.
