WALLACE AND GROMIT + MADAGASCAR PENGUINS MINI MOVIE

Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit, prepare themselves for an adventure of their lives. With only days to go before the annual Giant Vegetable Competition, they find their West Wallaby Street home over-run by rabbits due to their "humane" pest control. 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, but evil lurks in the form of 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. Lady Tottington is eventually forced to allow Victor to hunt down the vege-eating monster.

The eccentric inventor Wallace and his fun-loving dog Gromit is a remarkable dream team. One is an absent-minded super genius (Wallace) while the other has an investigative and analytical mind that will make Sherlock Holmes really, really proud (Gromit). Together, the pair is simply inseparable. How exactly they are able to stay together for so long is a mystery that is yet to be revealed, but one thing is for sure. Nobody, not even a vegetable-chomping beast, can take away the love that Wallace and Gromit have for one another.

Created by famous British director Nick Park, the characters Wallace and Gromit have been around for many years, since 1989 in fact. Their first movie together was the ground breaking "A Grand Day Out" and since then, Wallace and Gromit have been famous plasticine role models to everyone in the world. Following the successful "A Grand Day Out", two other Wallace and Gromit movies were released ("The Wrong Trousers" 1993 and "A Close Shave" 1995).

In 2005, Wallace and Gromit returns, with "Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit", a delightful watch from the start till the end. In this movie, Wallace and Gromit are their town's heroes as they form the Anti-Pesto team. The Anti-Pesto takes care of vegetable-stealing rabbits which breaks into the good citizens' home at night, but Wallace and Gromit are always ready to take care of business. As everyone in town is busy preparing for the yearly Giant Vegetable Competition, a threat has arrived to stop the competition from taking place. Fearing for her competition, the splendid Lady Tottington commissions the Anti Pesto team to capture the ravaging giant monster who's been attacking the vegetable plots in Wallace and Gromit's neighbourhood.

"Curse of the Were-Rabbit" not only assembles a stunning cast of actors to do voice-overs for the characters in the movie (Peter Sallis, Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham-Carter) it is also an ingenious and impeccable movie to watch. You'll love the movie for its proliferation of wacky gadgets, all of them invented by Wallace, of course, but Gromit's brain is also as powerful and complex as his master, indefinitely. In fact, the loyal canine Gromit sometimes impresses the audience much more as his ingenuity saves the clumsy Wallace from getting into trouble.

Unlike other animations which seem to favour spoofing Hollywood and making fun of politicians a lot, "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" guarantees you a few good hours of fun without any of those senseless comedies that other animations have. With its tightly-constructed plot, that seems to get more and more interesting as time passes, the audience will love the adventures, or rather mis-adventures of Wallace as he gets himself into serious troubles without even knowing it! Thankfully, Wallace has an intelligent and reliable dog, Gromit, to save him from being the laugh of the town.

No amendments or adjustments are necessary for this movie. "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" is yet another one of Nick Park's shining and flawless piece. Personally, I think the movie has turned me into a loyal Wallace and Gromit fan from my days of watching really senseless animations.
