The Wallace and Gromit Trilogy (1993)

(In theaters, September 2002) I call classic! I call comedy! I call genius! I even call for you all to rush out and get a copy of the DVD if you haven’t yet seen the “Wallace and Gromit” trilogy. A series of three animated shorts about the adventures of an inventor and his dog, Wallace And Gromit works really well on a wide variety of audiences. While their first feature (“A Grand Day Out”; fun but forgettable) leaves me mostly unaffected, their second one (“A Close Shave”; classic sheep comedy!) and the third (“The Wrong Trousers”: it even throws in a penguin!) are pure genius. The sheep-formation and toy-train-pursuit sequences alone are worth rushing out to your nearest video store. I won’t spoil anything more… just go, already!
