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

What I personally like best about this is that at its heart it's a horror movie for kids. It has so many horror movie conventions including the monster POV, the over the top music for the big reveal and even some jump scares. The difference is that the only thing in danger are the veggies that the were-rabbit is devouring. It's a great approach.
Funny film. The casting is PERFECT. No shortage of visual (and verbal) puns for the adults, always things for the kids. I've seen this film so many times I had to buy this second DVD because the first one died a thousand kid deaths in our home. Fantastic film. One of my favourites.
Personally, if it were up to me this would have been a shoo-in for the Best Motion Picture Oscar. I can only assume that Academy members in their prejudiced heart-of-hearts cruelly gave vent to their bigotry against British plasticene when denying it a nomination for the top prize, and I think that every right-thinking man and dog should protest the indignity.
The Curse of the Were Rabbit is easily portrayed, entertaining, and adventurous. The price was right, delivery (well, actually...in our case, download) was fast, quality of picture and sound were fantastic. Great family buy!
