just saw it. it was awesome if you liked Brit humor (similar to Hitchiker). very inventive... but i felt that for some people that longer than 1 hour format didn't work. some of them like it doses.

I thought it was great - funny. But the story line fell apart about 2/3 way through.

I just saw and really liked it, but in a lot of ways, it's the weakest yet. But that's like saying "Let it Be" is the worst Beatles album. It's still freaking great. I don't think the feature length format helped. It's still the best family film I've seen all year.

for those of you that have seen it, what do you think of the surround mix? i liked how they utilized the surround sounds to create atmosphere, mood and a semblance of artificial reality =).

i liked it a lot. Not as funny as the other three Wallace and Grommit movies, but some of the best- maybe THE best stop motion I've ever seen. The night time/subteranian chase sequence was so well animated that I almost forgot that it was stop motion. I think the length was fine, considering that every shot is eye candy.
