Y’all have GOT to go see the new Wallace and Gromit movie. Imperative! I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve laughed so hard and at so long a stretch. Peter Sellis (known as Norman Clegg in BBC’s longest-running comedy, “Last of the Summer Wine”) provides the delightful voice for Wallace and the transformed rabbit, and Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes show a completely delicious comic twist to their talents as the voices of Lady Campanula Tottington and Victor Quartermaine. Fans of “Are You Being Served?” will immediately recognize Nicholas Smith (Mr. Rumbold – “Old Jug Ears”) as the voice of the vicar.

The claymation is clever, the characterizations are brilliant, the plot is cheesy (giggle, for those already familiar with Wallace and Gromit) and the humor is so subtle and sophisticated… note the wording on the box in which Wallace is clothed at the end of the movie.

You won’t regret going, honest!
