Fantastic, BAFTA award-winning (it won Best British Film, beating the more highbrow Pride and Prejudice) family entertainment from those whizzes with ‘claymation’, Aardman Animations, who also made Chicken Run and the Creature Comforts TV series. Dotty inventor Wallace (voiced by Sallis) and his bemused dog Gromit – who we previously met in the short films A Close Shave and The Wrong Trousers – are on the trail of a giant angry rabbit who is terrorising locals and eating their treasured vegetables days before the annual Giant Vegetable Competition is to be held at Tottington Hall.
As well as this adventure, there’s also time for some romance for Wallace, in the form of glamorous Lady Tottington (voiced by Bonham Carter), and a love rival, Victor Quartermaine (brilliantly voiced by Ralph Fiennes). It’s terrific stuff, packed with jokes and adventures that will appeal to both parents and kids alike.
Is Wallace And Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit suitable for kids? Here are our parents’ notes...
Under 7s may be scared by the were-rabbit. The night-time scenes have a fun horror movie feel to them, but very young viewers may find this upsetting.
