Wallace&Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Posted by pantherion Labels: , , , ,

And now for something completely different – the best thing that came out of United Kingdom since Monty Python. A hint: it is almost as funny and features a plasticine dog with a university degree. And the dog's name is Gromit. Have you guessed yet? Wallace and Gromit are the eponymous characters of five films so far, each of them was Oscar-nominated, three actually won the statuette. One of the winners was their only full-length cinema movie feature: Wallace&Gromit – The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. If you are familiar with other films of the series you most certainly have already seen this, but if you haven't watched any yet, well, expect the unexpected. The Curse... is a wild ride, often absolutely hilarious, full of very smart ideas, as well as pretty cute. If you are a film fan (especially keen on 1960's British horror) watching it can bring a lot of satisfaction when spotting certain movie references too. Unfortunately, some of the jokes are a little bit of a miss, and The Curse... might not be as good as some of the shorts featuring the plasticine couple, but it is still definitely worth it.
