Claymation heroes Wallace and Gromit make their feature-length debut in this delightful comedy adventure. Bursting with wit and imagination, it takes Aardman Animations' Oscar-winning short film format to new levels of technical genius. The enterprising inventor (voiced, as ever, by veteran actor Peter Sallis) and his faithful dog cash in on the approaching Giant Vegetable Competition by offering a humane pest-control service to rid the neighbourhood of rabbits. However, business is jeopardised when a mysterious monster begins destroying local gardens, forcing the pals into a frantic race to catch the veg-ravaging terror. Despite being peppered slightly too heavily with modern innuendo, the tale retains its charm, gaining plenty of comic mileage from its quaint depiction of northern life. Working-class Wallace's rivalry with trigger-happy toff Victor (voiced by Ralph Fiennes) is especially amusing, and there are some great references to classic horror movies. But it's facially expressive Gromit who steals the show, causing genuine hilarity without uttering a single word.
