    Just saw " curse of the were - rabbit" tonight. fun for young and old alike, very much worth the price of admission.

    I haven't seen the movie, but there's just something about evil penguins that grabs my liking.

    They are brilliant. you have to watch the movies several times to look for all the humour in the background of every scene. Look at book titles on shelves for example or look at the incidental characters at the edge of the screen for funny expressions and goings-on. The humour is aimed fairly at the adult audience but kids see the plain funny stuff.
    I used to see the full sized Anti-Pesto van being trucked back after filming each day last year and on Friday It was on display at the Classic Car motor-show in Birmingham so I had my picture taken by it.
    Shame the production company warehouse went up in smoke last month. They lost most all their props and sets.

    Not in the newest film.. the evil penguin was in an earlier film"the wrong trousers".

    The wallace and gromit films I've seen are:

    The wrong Trousers

    A Grand Day Out

    A close shave

    cracking contraptions

    Curse of the were - rabbit.

    A close shave is my favorite, but they are all funny. If you like british humor, that is.
