Curse of the Were-Rabbit

daisy_knotwise and I headed out to the cheap theater to see the new Wallace and Gromit movie, Curse of the Were-Rabbit. We hadn't realized it was preceded by a short cartoon featuring the penguins from Madagascar, which was quite a bit of fun in the old Warner Brothers tradition. (We haven't seen Madagascar yet.)

The main feature was a lot of fun. It felt maybe just a little long, but I think mostly because we're used to seeing the characters in the short form. And we're going to have to get the DVD just so we can hunt down all the gags in the background. Dogwarts University, indeed! But the story was solid and silly in the way that Wallace and Gromit usually are, the claymation looked just fine, and poor Gromit suffers and suffers and suffers.

I'm assuming that my niece still likes Wallace and Gromit. I'll bet she liked this. We did.
