Great Short Film, Very Well Done
22 August 2002 | by (Escondido, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Wallace And Gromit are excellent! The film is great, it's got some excellent comedy in the film. The story is a quite odd one, but nonetheless it's great. You can't take a short film like this seriously, it's all in good fun.

I think Nick Park and his crew did an excellent job with this film. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone and everyone, besides, it's only 20 minutes or so. After you watch this film, be sure to check out the other Wallace and Gromit films. If you really like this film and the others, be sure to check out "Chicken Run". Hope you enjoy the film, thanks for reading,

-Chris
