A Matter of Loaf and Death

Anybody in Australia catch A Matter of Loaf and Death last night?  How was it?  


My kids and I are big Wallace & Grommit fans.  That the new one is set in a bakery makes it irresistable.

It's ok but I wouldn't call it their best attempt.  Wallace talks to much, and his search of female companionship is getting old - what with "Close Shave" and "The Curse.."  I was also not impressed by constant references to other movies.  It is of course well worth watching and buying, and you'll notice when you see it that #12 kinda looks like Peter Reinhart.

I watched Thursday night.  How?  One word: YouTube.


I haven't seen the movie, but I thought it was better than A Close Shave.  It started off a bit too frantic for my taste, but I enjoyed the last 20 minutes or so.  C'mon... what's not to like about exploding pants?


You are right... #12 does look a bit like Peter.

And I thought it fizzled by the end of the rescue scene.  You should get the movie, it is absolutely wonderful.
