Welcome to Candleshoe, a stately English manor where a swashbuckling pirate hid a fortune in Spanish doubloons centuries ago. And that's what young orphan Casey and a sly con man are determined to find.
Wallace takes a break from trying to decide on a holiday destination only to find he has no cheese for his crackers. The solution to both problems is a trip to the moon, with dog Gromit, because everybody knows the moon's made of cheese.
Wallace lets out his spare room to a penguin. The penguin and Gromit, Wallace's dog, immediately don't see eye-to-eye. Meanwhile, Wallace has invented a giant pair of robotic trousers, designed to take Gromit for walks.
Cult classic children's animated series about a group of human and animal characters that gather at the roundabout / carousel in the park. Although the original series is French there are multiple dubbed versions from other countries.
A gangster movie where all the gangsters are played by children. Instead of real bullets they use "splurge guns" that cover the victim in cream. The story tells of the rise of "Bugsy Malone" and the battle for power between "Fat Sam" and "Dandy Dan".Written by

Alan Parker mentioned that the Splurge Inc. warehouse on dock 17 was a "disused" Huntley & Palmer biscuit factory in Reading. See more »

Someone once said, "If it was raining brains, Roxy Robinson wouldn't even get wet." Roxy had spent his whole life making two and two into five, but he could smell trouble like other people could smell gas. But believe you's me, he should've never taken that blind alley by the side of Parido's Bakery. Whatever game it was everybody was playing, sure as eggs is eggs, Roxy the Weasel had been scrambled.

Two Bugsy Malone video discs are available [9/9/2013] in the U.S.: a 10/11/2005 Region 1 "import" DVD (UPC 4895033728429) distributed by Panorama Entertainment having a feature runtime of 89 minutes (1:29:44) and a 9/9/2008 "All Regions" BD (UPC 5037115290830) distributed by ITV Studios (formerly, in part, Granada Productions) with a feature runtime of 93 minutes (1:33:51 that includes running a 9 second Granada International logo clip, not on the DVD, before and after the movie, 1:33:33 + 00:18). ITV Studios was formed in 2009 by the merger of Granada Productions and Carlton International. Ironically, the DVD case cover lists a 94 minute runtime and the Blu-ray case cover lists an 89 minute runtime. The only differences between the two presentations, once the 18 seconds for the Granada International logo clip is subtracted from the BD time, is (1) after the Rank gong is struck the second time, the text "The RANK ORGANISATION presents" is superimposed over the gong in the BD version while the text "THE RANK ORGANISATION" is superimposed over the gong in the DVD version, (2) the DVD runs the movie about 4% faster than the Blu-ray disc, and (3) the DVD has 1.33:1 aspect (640 pixels x 480 pixels), letter boxed on all four sides to 1.62:1 aspect ratio (596 pixels x 367 pixels) while the BD has 1.78:1 aspect (1920 pixels x 1080 pixels). Both disc conversions appear to have used "pan and scan" cropping from the film's 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Sometimes the cropping appears similar, but other times, one may crop the height mostly from the top while the other mostly from the bottom. The feature on the Blu-ray disc runs at 24 Hz. Although the DVD runs at 60 Hz, the speed-up is similar to the 4.3% speed-up when 24 frame/second film is transferred to 50 Hz Pal format using 2:2 pulldown and may point to a 50 Hz master in its past.

i would personaly say this is one of the greatest films ever made full stop. i know some of the acting is a bit "wooden" and the songs are badly dubbed but even so it is a wonderfully magic film. the sets and lighting are extrodenary and the plot is fast fun and full of morels which are told in a way as to be friendly to kids. i showed it to my kids last night (9 and 5) they were glued to it and my daughter asked if she could have it for christmas. i have read that some people think it is soft kiddy porn. i could not dissagree more stongly. there are no adults in this film and no sex. the cast make you belive that you are in their world so seeing a child dancing on stage at a 'speak easy'does not seem odd. as i said at the begining one of the best films ever made. it has all the quailties a truly brilliant film has, good script good actors and a fantastic set. if you havent seen this film yet watch it and if you have seen this film watch it again look at the sets and lighting look at the story. this is a harmless film with a good moral standpoint this should be shown to all kids everywere
