Wallace and Gromit are a pair like you've never seen before. There is something for everyone. First, you have Wallace, the great inventor of things not necessarily perfect, but highly entertaining. His inventions certainly make for interesting plots. And, you have Gromit, his faithful pooch... who is more than he seems. A dog who reads the newspaper, and knits, Gromit often seems to have more together than his so called "master".
Wallace and Gromit make for quite an Odd Couple, with their love of cheese, and their ability to find their way into trouble... well actually, it is Wallace who typically gets them into the trouble, and Gromit who gets them back out. Together, they have appeared in three films, created by master of clay, Nick Park.
In their second film, The Wrong Trousers, Gromit has a lovely birthday, and Wallace's gift to Gromit is, of course, a grand invention that Gromit may not necessarily appreciate. Things get more interesting, as Wallace decides to "let" (rent) the extra room to a mysterious penguin. Where their new guest, and Gromit's new Techno-Trousers will take them, no-one knows. With memorable scenes such as Gromit in the doghouse, some interesting loud music, and lines such like "Cracking Toast, Gromit" this film is sure to please. We begin to find that Wallace is quite a witty conversationalist, and you are started off into a lifetime of Wallace quotes. If after watching A Grand Day Out, you found yourself saying "Cheee-eese... we'll go somewhere where there's cheeese.", then you will not be able to resist repeating "Do something Gromit!" Of course, Gromit, being a dog, still does not talk, but in this second film, his body language has become more developed and the humor of his facial expressions is truly entertaining.
In their third film, A Close Shave, Wallace has been busy inventing
again, and we see a number of inventions. He and Gromit have begun
a window washing business, and seem quite successful at it. Wallace
meets a woman named Wendolene who seems to look somehow familiar, and they hit it off right away. A group of sheep come into the picture, including a cute little sheep named Shawn, who seems particulary good at getting into trouble, and they all eat practically everything in sight. But who couldn't love cute little Shawn?
This movie has much more of an air of mystery, as there is a sheep rustler on the loose. As we wonder who it may be, many surprises are in store. With scenes of sheep pyramids, and Wallace having a breakfast of porridge in an interesting way, you will find yourself laughing out loud... and of course, we again hear the now infamous line from Wallace...
"Do something, Gromit!"
