It's 'vege-mania' in Wallace and Gromit's neighborhood, and our two enterprising chums are cashing in with their humane pest-control outfit. With only days to go before the annual Giant Vegetable Competition, business is booming, but Wallace and 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.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Wallace & Gromit is one of the better offerings to be found in a year that has seen a drop-off in the quality of animated films. Along with Corpse Bride (also filmed using stop-motion), it's one of 2005's few non-live action feature capable of engaging all members of the family.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good ...'Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit' is the second stop-motion animated film in two weeks, after 'Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.' Both of these films are wonderful, but Wallace and Gromit have the additional quality of being lovable beyond all measure, inhabiting a world of British eccentricity...

USA Today Full Review
Very Good The attention to detail in creator and co-director Nick Park's sprightly stop-motion animation world is astounding.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 71 moviegoer opinions. Children obviously loved "Wallace and Gromit." The few teen opinions we collected were also outstanding. Adult opinions, both male and female, were quite high. Over half rated it "Very Good" or higher, which for a kids movie is great. I can easily recommend "Wallace and Gromit" to all families. It's a movie you and the kids will both enjoy, at least to some degree.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
As the annual Giant Vegetable Competition approaches, it's "veggie-mania" in Wallace & Gromit's neighborhood. The two enterprising chums have been cashing in with their pest-control outfit, "Anti-Pesto," which humanely dispatches the rabbits that try to invade the town's sacred gardens.

Suddenly, a huge, mysterious, veg-ravaging beast begins terrorizing the neighborhood, attacking the town's prized plots at night and destroying everything in its path. Desperate to protect the competition, its hostess, Lady Tottington (Helena Bonham Carter), commissions Anti-Pesto to catch the creature and save the day.

Lying in wait, however, is Lady Tottington's snobby suitor, Victor Quartermaine (Ralph Fiennes), who'd rather shoot the beast and secure the position of local hero—not to mention Lady Tottington'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.
