Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit Plot Synopsis:

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 Victor's real intent could have dire consequences for her ...and our two heroes.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) Review

Steve Box and Nick Park co-direct The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) which is G rated. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit one an Oscar Award plus another 38 movie awards and was nominated for an additional 25 movie awards. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit had an estimated movie budget of $30 million and grossed $56.1 million at the US box office.


In The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromit are in the exterminating business and must get rid of pests terrorizing local gardens. Later on in this film, we discover that the culprit is a were-rabbit. A terrible beast that goes crazy destroying all in its path. Can they save the town? Who is the monster?

As the father, I was a little bored watching this film as it is catered to children with the clay animation style and storyline. As for my children, they loved the animation style and storyline. My excitement was revitalized after the midway point in the film. This movie is a great way to introduce the little ones to scares without getting too scary at all. I laughed a great bit when we finally found out who the were-rabbit was.
