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
When Lady Tottington wants the Were-Rabbit to escape after being convinced that it's Wallace, she says "Run, rabbit, run!" Which is the title (and lyric) of a ditty written by Noel Gay and Ralph Butler for Noel's show, "The Little Dog Laughed". WWII era comedy duo Bud Flanagan and Chesney Allen made the song popular by adding lyrics referring to Adolf Hitler. PC Mac whistled this song during the original version of the opening sequence (see "Deleted Scenes" on the DVD). See more »
In the scene where the Priest and Victor are looking through the book of Monsters, a candle can be seen on the left side of the book, but in the next shot it is on the right. See more »
Rabbits float up the screen during the closing credits. On the Sci-fi music, they flash in different colors. On the romantic music, two rabbits act romantic and sometimes fly in other directions. The final line in the credits is "We would like to stress that no animals were harmed during the making of this film", and a rabbit hits its head on the text and falls. See more »
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 »
We (two mature adults) saw Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit yesterday. All the other adults in the theater had at least one kid in tow. Most of these kids began laughing early on, but it was the ADULTS who were in stitches most often! It is just amazing to watch the action and try to remember that the "actors" are plasticine. Gromet gets the vote for "Best Movie Dog" ever. Be sure to listen and watch carefully...there are numerous jokes and sight gags popping up in the dialog and the background. We especially hooted at the label on the old cardboard box Wallace is forced to don late in film. We are huge Nick Parks' fans, and this movie just augmented our deep affection for his work. Go see Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit ASAP. Four adult thumbs HIGH up!
