Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
Released October 26th, 2005.

Wallace and Gromit finally make it to the big screen with their first feature film Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, proving that the bounce is definitely not gone from their bungee! Ten years ago we watched Nick Park and our cheese-loving pals walk off with an Oscar for the short film A Close Shave, now they are back and ready for more action, more fun and more comedy, that children and adults alike will find irresistible! In this brilliantly told adventure we find our two favorite inventors operating a successful pest-control business!

With the annual Giant Vegetable Competition on the way Wallace (flawlessly voiced once again by Peter Sallis) and Gromit (with his ever famous facial expressions including the "you have to be kidding me" face) find themselves faced with the task of keeping pesky rabbits away from the locals prize veggies including an upper class noblewoman Lady Tottington (voiced with a posh genius by Helena Bonham Carter) who has the worst rabbit infestation in all of London and who also happens to be a humanitarian to all things furry. Always the clever creators Wallace and Gromit come up with their latest invention the Bun-Vac 6000 which quickly and painlessly suck up the unwanted visitors and propels them into stalls in their home to become guests. Things turn a bit dark when a huge Rabbit begins terrorizing the neatly planted gardens of the London townspeople and Totty's arrogant and devious suitor, Victor Quartermaine (voiced by Ralph Fiennes with wit and hilarity) gets it into his head to "dispose" of the creature and anyone who gets in his way, including Wallace who also has his heart taken aback by Lady Tottington!

The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is filled with clever puns, heartfelt laughter, and meticulous stop-motion clay-mation that will have you rolling in the aisles and cheering with applause. Definitely recommended for the visually impaired, although certain things will be lost visually, it offers, jokes and dialog that are top notch and easy to follow! With this splendid comedy we are left only asking for one thing, for more CHEESE!
