Title: Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit Director: Steve Box, Nick Park Year: 2005 Run time: 1hr 16

Background Info

I’ve seen this once before, and I seem to recall being distinctly unimpressed with it, although I don’t really remember why. I know I like the shorts much better, but I think that’s true of everyone really. I was still happy to give Wallace another chance though.

00:00:33 - Yay for the theme tune. Impossible not to be happy. 00:03:06 - Ooh, Hans Zimmer, who knew? 00:04:55 - Aw, look at the cute little rabbit. 00:09:07 - If all dogs were as high-tech as Gromit, I’d be happy to own one. 00:10:34 - “I haven’t tested it yet, but it should be perfectly safe.” 00:14:17 - They may have messed up her garden more than any rabbit. 00:20:20 - Wallace falls in love so easily, bless him. 00:22:52 - All these high tech greenhouses, they should secure churches like that too. 00:25:37 - He sounds like Joe Grundy off the Archers. (It is!) 00:28:55 - She sent them a signed picture of herself! Things very highly of herself, doesn’t she? 00:32:06 - Gromit always ends up chasing or running - on a train, on a plane, now in the van. 00:36:04 - They found him. We’re only halfway through the film. 00:40:11 - You can’t change a man, especially not like Victor. **00:46:56 - The vicar just happens to have gold bullets stored away. **00:50:07 - I’m actually a bit confused now, but I love the Wallace rabbit. 00:52:30 - “My mind’s just a rabbity mush.” Mine is too most days, and I don’t have an excuse. 00:54:13 - I’m surprised her hair doesn’t look like a carrot to him. 00:58:24 - I’m assuming Gromit designed that cage. He must know how to get out of it. 01:01:54 - That IS a giant pumpkin. Bless Mrs Mulch. 01:02:44 - This sounds a bit Barry White. 01:04:22 - I’m sure mobs never used to have chainsaws.** **01:06:59 - Oh, Gromit’s in a plane again. Any custard? 01:11:31 - Wallace will be fine, he fell in the cheese tent after all. 01:12:25 - Aw, cute rabbits crying. 01:14:59 - Is she dressed as a sweetcorn?** **

Conclusions

It’s not the best, I’ll admit, but it certainly wasn’t as bad as I remembered. Wallace and Gromit can make anything amusing, and I do love the cute little rabbits. I just wish Wallace wouldn’t fall in love so easily, he could quite happily fix people’s problems without being in love with the woman with carrot hair.
