From Amazon.co.uk

A decade after their last hilarious short, the Oscar-winning A Close Shave, Claymation wonders Wallace and Gromit return for a full-length adventure. Daffy scientist Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) and his heroic dog Gromit are doing well with their business, Anti-Pesto, a varmint-hunting outfit designed to keep their English town safe from rabbits chomping on prized vegetables. Wallace meets Lady Tottington (Helena Bonham Carter), who appreciates Wallace's humane way of dealing with rabbits (courtesy of the Bun-Vac 6000), and sets up a rivalry with the gun-toting Victor Quartermaine (Ralph Fiennes, enjoying himself more than ever). Creator Nick Park, with co-director/writer Steve Box, delivers a story worthy of the 85-minute running time, although it stretches the act a bit; the formula plays better shorter, but the literally hand-crafted film is a joy to watch. Taking a chapter from classic horror films, a giant were-rabbit is soon on the prowl, and the town is up in arms, what with the annual vegetable contest close at hand. (Anyone who's seen the previous three shorts knows who saves the day.) Never content to do something simply when the extravagant will do, W&G's lives are filled with whimsical Rude Goldberg-style devices, and the opening number showcasing their alarm system is pure Aardman Animation at its finest. Even though there's a new twist here--a few mild sight gags aimed at adults--this G-rated film will delight young and old alike as Park, like team Pixar, seems incapable of making anything but an outstanding film. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars It was worth the five year wait! 1 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Another sucess for Nick Park and co, this movie is yet another jewel in Aardman's crown. With a wide variety of characters and more visual gags than you can shake a stick at (or in this particular case, shake a carrot at) this is Wallace and Gromit as you've never seen them before. Since A Close Shave, they are now running a veg protection business called 'Anti-Pesto'. With the Giant Vegetable Competition only days away, a huge ravenous beast is on the loose, threatening to spoil everything. Can Wallace and Gromit catch him? This DVD will contain the following extras:
Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation
English DD5.1 Surround
English subtitles
Cracking Commentary with Nick Park and Steve Box
Deleted Scenes
How Wallace and Gromit Went To Hollywood
Behind The Scenes Of The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit
A Day In The Life At Aardman
How To Build A Bunny
The Family Album
Games such as: Anti-Pesto SWAT Team, Victor Quartermaine's Guide To Cool, and Style With Lady Tottington.
DVD-ROM Printables
Making of the Were-Rabbit
All 10 'Wallace & Gromit's Cracking Contraptions' shorts
The Amazing World of Wallace & Gromit
Stage Fright
5/5. A truly wonderful Wallace and Gromit movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Curse of the Were Rabbit 1 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
Wallace & Gromit seem to have been around forever. They've been catapulted to fame from three wonderful, oscar-winning shorts and now here comes their movie. No pressure then... It certainly doesn't feel like it.

This is an effortless film, full of visual and word puns. The films are a celebration of all things English. Our two heroes are not only on a par with great animated characters, like Bugs and Daffy, but are two of the great comic characters in film, alongside Laurel & Hardy. We're very lucky to be around while Nick Park makes films. He is a cinema giant making films that will be watched many years from now.

That said, the pair, like the aforementioned Stan & Ollie, do work better in the short format. The film, while never stretched, demands a lot from our trusted pair... Mr. Wallace is often off screen as the plot requires so it's up to his trusted friend Gromit to rescue both him and the film. Has he let us down yet?

It's a wonderful film for adults and children. The best that can be said for it is that it deserves a place on your mantlepiece alongside the three other charming shorts.

4.0 out of 5 stars A charming classic 22 May 2006
Format:DVD
An eagerly awaited full length feature film from Aardman starring the award-winning animated duo, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit lives up to expectations by having a good story, humour for kids and knowing wit for adults.

The quintessentially English duo have a job catching and looking after rabbits to ensure that nothing is spoilt or eaten for the forthcoming annual vegetable show. All is going well till one of Wallace's eccentric inventions gets into the mix with catastrophic results though it all, of course, turns out fine in the end.

A charming film with strong characters and Gromit's silent stares expressing more than any words. Well worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking special edition! 10 May 2006
Format:DVD
Not much to say about the movie itself - it's great. But: Best of all, this 2 disc special edition contains ten otherwise unavailable shorts, the "Cracking Contraptions".

So if you have to choose between the single and the two disc edition - buy the latter one!

Since in Germany only a one disc edition is available yet I bought this SE as addon...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 4 Nov 2005
By J Cattermole VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This has to be the best and funniest film i have seen! The characters alone make you laugh because they look so funny and cute. The storyline is fantastic with some brilliant and clever twists. It's got edge of your seat action, side splitting comedy and even some touching moments! It also has some subtle jokes for us adults to make us giggle.
It has to be the best film of the year, as a big wallace and gromit fan im delighted there's been a film finally, big well done to the creators! Its a must-have, my kids have seen it nearly everyday at the cinema they cant get enough off it so this'll be the perfect present for yours, and even yourself because i'll certainly be watching this dvd over and over!

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit of Wensleydale anyone? 8 Jun 2006
By CC
Format:DVD
I absolutely love this movie. And i see it at least four times a day. My little three year old insists on watching it all the time.

I took her to the cinema to see it with my sister and my cousin and we are all different ages and loved it as much as the kids!

I would like to say i cannot believe there is one reviewer here who doesn't like this film! Impossible. What kind of stick in the mud are you?

Wallace and Gromit are fantastic and there should be more of them. And but for the intricate animation process i believe there would be.

This movie is flawless in it's creation and attention to detail. Even down to the adult aimed gags like the middle aged spread jar and the name anti pesto. There is a lot for the grown ups in this movie which proves that the audience has been considered thoroughly. There is nothing worse than sitting through inane kids films that fail to keep their attention never mind the parents.

Wallace and Gromit: the curse of the ware rabbit is brilliant and hits every spot. The humour, the plot, the perfect animation all put this film at the top of the list as far as i am concerned.

Those who don't get it should get in touch with their inner child and grow young. Obviously life has taken over somewhere along the line.

Brilliant movie and a special mention of my favourite character goes to the Vicar who makes me giggle every time i see him.

Well worth the money, the time and the effort on behalf of Nick Park and the Dreamworks team. Even those without kids should buy it and enjoy 100% entertainment.
