Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Eccentric inventor Wallace (voice of Peter Sallis) and his faithful if often perplexed dog Gromit are back in their first feature-length adventure from animator Nick Park. Wallace and Gromit have launched a new business venture just in time for a major gardening competition in their neighborhood of West Wallaby.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The final work justifies every meticulous, monastic, masochistic effort."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"There is something for everybody here: an unholy mixture of Philip Larkin and Bruce Wayne."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, featuring his heroic man-and-dog duo, Wallace and Gromit, is Park at his sublimely silly best."
‑ Marc Lee, Daily Telegraph
"It's not as good as the Oscar-winning shorts The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave, but it is good."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Instead of vainly pursuing today's latest trends, only to see them turn into tomorrow's embarrassments, Park and co. fall back on the values of the past, preferring substance and craft to the fleetingly voguish."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"The finished article is so CGI-like that you wonder whether all that organic stop-frame stuff was necessary. Sorry, chaps."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"It's slightly amusing and I'd say when it comes out on video or if you catch it on cable, but to rush out to theaters..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A dry yet whimsical touch, specifically British and also aware of cinematic tradition"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Park and co have shaped a wonderfully warm and fuzzy family adventure out of old horror clichà (C)s."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Film4
"It's a one-joke premise, but part of Nick Park's madness/genius is the skill and detail with which he approaches it."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Despite its vocal distractions, this clay-animation comedy adventure managed to dazzle me with its sheer audacity and inventiveness."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"The cheesy puns are as thick as rabbits in the bucolic England of inventor Wallace and his loyal mutt Gromit, and that's a gouda thing."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This is a kids film everyone can enjoy,"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Without question, both the best non live-action film and best family film since last year's The Incredibles."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"With Were-Rabbit, Mr. Park establishes Gromit as the best animated canine character since Snoopy."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
