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.
When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
It's 'vege-mania' in Wallace and Gromit's neighborhood, and our two enterprising chums are cashing in with their humane pest-control outfit, "Anti-Pesto." With only days to go before the annual Giant Vegetable Competition, business is booming, but Wallace & Gromit are finding out that running a "humane" pest control outfit has its drawbacks as their West Wallaby Street home fills to the brim with captive rabbits. Suddenly, a huge, mysterious, veg-ravaging "beast" begins attacking the town's sacred vegetable plots at night, and the competition hostess, Lady Tottington, commissions Anti-Pesto to catch it and save the day. Lying in wait, however, is Lady Tottington's snobby suitor, Victor Quartermaine, who'd rather shoot the beast and secure the position of local hero-not to mention Lady Tottingon's hand in marriage. With the fate of the competition in the balance, Lady Tottington is eventually forced to allow Victor to hunt down the vegetable chomping marauder. Little does she know that...Written by
Hutch says "CHEESE" a total of 5 times: -1st: When Gromit holding up some cheese opens up the Crate that Hutch had been placed into after thinking that he'd been the Were-Rabbit, showing himself to now be bigger with a Vest and Shoes, in addition to being able to speak with Wallace's Personality. -2nd: When Gromit in the Rabbit Trap that Victor and Phillip placed him into is able to get Hutch out of Wallace's bed while he's eating cheese and into the Pesto Van to help him out of the trap, in addition to preventing Victor from shooting the Were-Rabbit at Tottington Palace. -3rd: When Hutch driving the Pesto Van at the Vegetable Competition gets carried off from helping Gromit sacrifice his Prize Melon to lure the Were-Rabbit away from Victor upon seeing a Cheese Tent, driving into it and smashing the Melon slightly. -4th: After the Were-Rabbit turns back into Wallace lying unconscious in the cheese tent after driving Victor away in the Female Were-Rabbit Costume being chased by the Angry Mob, Hutch mentioning Cheese prompts Gromit to wake Wallace up with the smell of it. -5th: Right before the Credits start to roll, with him being the last of the Rabbits released into Lady Tottington's Rabbit Sanctuary at the end.

In the German theatrical version, all of the inscriptions seen on the props in the film have been seamlessly translated into German. However, this is not valid for the German DVD: it has an English video master. See more »
Being a "Wallace and Gromit-fan", I was looking forward for this full-length movie. Surprisingly I saw it at THE world-premiere in Vlissingen (NL), at the Film by the Sea festival. A wonderful feeling to be one of the first to see this very amusing and merry movie. It's about Wallace and Gromit (whom I believe don't need an introduction) having their own pest-control company in the city which is hosting a giant-vegetable contest in a few days. Everyone, including an eccentric baroness, is hoping his or her giant carrot or melon will win the Golden carrot. Unfortunately the town is plagued by lots of hungry rabbits. This is where W&G come in. The have their own cracking contraptions to control these cute creatures in a human way.
It's a very funny and colorful story. Anyone who liked the three proceeding short movies of W&G (which are more than great!), will love this full-length movie. Nick Park really delivered a wonderful and original result with a great sense for humor. Like in Chicken Run, it truly amazes me how he can capture so much story and emotions in just a few frames. "Job well done, lad" ;-) Oh yeah: The music was fantastic! It really completes the ride. Enjoy!
