Curse of the Were-Rabbit in the sky...

Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Jim spotted this cloud formation just now and its reminded me that I haven't mentioned that we went to see the Wallace and Grommit film on Tuesday.

It seemed rather like a cross between a Carry On film and a P G Wodehouse. Some of the jokes were a lot less subtle than I'd have expected.

We found it amusing. And we laughed at the joke at the end of the credits too. Most people had left and missed this.

And I also liked the short at the start too, The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper. Especially the improvised machine gun... This one was CG and more in the mould of Tom and Jerry.

It was gone by the time I'd loaded the picture on the computer - good job it had come out okay.

The movie was a "cross between a Carry On film and a P G Wodehouse?" Hahaha, how did they manage that?

Ever lay flat on grass and watch clouds float by? It feels weeeird, as if you're moving slow.

Hi GG - Jim pointed out that the Wallace and Grommits we'd seen before had at most 2 voices actors the rest being animals characters and the jokes visual so I suppose a lot of the difference was from having so many more human characters.

We used to lie on grass a lot as children, and watch the clouds. But these days I'm lucky enough to have a room with such great cloud views that I simply sit and stare...

I forgot to mention that we saw it last weekend, too. Was thrilled to hear Ralph Fiennes playing Victor Quartermain...
