Wallace and Gromit
The Pirates! Band of Misfits proves that you don’t have to behave like an adult to learn how to grow up.
It's the latest import from Aardman Studios, the British company that produces the “Wallace and Gromit” claymation cartoons. Co-directors Jeff Newitt and Peter Lord and screenwriter Gideon Defoe trust their audience to understand their film's implicit individualistic message. The movie they made is not just consistently funny, but is also mature enough to not throw its maturity in its viewers' faces.
Whatever happened to Wallace and Gromit? At one point, the British claymation duo, an eccentric cheese-loving mad scientist and his dog, were poised to be the next big British import. They could have rivaled Pixar.
