Movie Info

Eccentric inventor Wallace (voice of Peter Sallis) and his faithful if often perplexed dog Gromit are back in their first feature-length adventure from animator Nick Park. Wallace and Gromit have launched a new business venture just in time for a major gardening competition in their neighborhood of West Wallaby. "Anti-Pesto" is a humane pest-relocation service in which Wallace and Gromit capture rabbits and other critters who have been eating the produce from local gardens and give them new homes somewhere else. Business has been going well, and when the woman hosting the garden show, Lady Tottington (voice of Helena Bonham Carter), discovers a massive tribe of rabbits has been making a mess of her garden, she calls in Wallace and Gromit to move the bunnies elsewhere. Wallace is quite taken with Lady Tottington, but he's not the only one -- Victor Quartermaine (voice of Ralph Fiennes) is a slick but arrogant upper-class type who wants to win Lady Tottington's hand (and fortune) and is convinced he can do a better job capturing the rabbits than Wallace. However, Wallace's attempts to brainwash the rabbits away from veggies using his latest invention has disastrous results, and soon Wallace has to deal with a beastly bunny as well as a heavily-armed Quartermaine. Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit followed Park's previous film with the duo, A Close Shave, by ten years, and was produced after Park broke through to mainstream success with the feature Chicken Run.

Critic Reviews for Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

All Critics (184) | Top Critics (50)

The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, featuring his heroic man-and-dog duo, Wallace and Gromit, is Park at his sublimely silly best.

December 26, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The final work justifies every meticulous, monastic, masochistic effort.

September 1, 2008 | Full Review…

The finished article is so CGI-like that you wonder whether all that organic stop-frame stuff was necessary. Sorry, chaps.

The comedy is never indulged at the expense of the plot, which flies off in genuinely unexpected directions, culminating in a boundlessly inventive funfair chase sequence.

April 1, 2006 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The family comedy is an all-around winner, blowing every other animated picture this year so far out of the water they're all stuck somewhere up in the upper atmosphere unable to get back down.

December 9, 2005 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Despite its vocal distractions, this clay-animation comedy adventure managed to dazzle me with its sheer audacity and inventiveness.

Audience Reviews for Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit


Just as Young Frankenstein riffed on the old Universal films with a dollop of love on the side, so too does this Aardmann Studio release homage many of the old classics with humor and affection. There's a monster on the loose that must be stopped ... can our lovable heroes get the job done in time? Rewatchable in the extreme.

As in the original shorts, the little details are what makes Wallace & Gromit's full length movie so much fun to watch. It's 'imported' humor may not be for everyone, and some of its gags may seem very odd for those unfamiliar with the history of the characters, Wallace & Gromit is pretty much exactly what would happen if everyone at Pixar suddenly became very, very British.
