"This is a wonderfully charming adventure. At the same time, it's not Nick Parks best. Creature Comforts, his first effort (and Academy Award Winner, The Wrong Trousers, and A Close Shave are all just amazing! Out of 4 claymations, he was nominated for each and won on every one except for A Grand Day Out."
Not the best W&G, but still amazing claymation.

""Grand Day Out" explores Wallace's fascination with cheese. It is not the best of the three currently available (the story isn't quite as compelling as "Trousers" and "Shave"), but still very good claymation. Probably more appealing to younger children."

"Nick Park's first W&G is still my favorite. It shows his incredible skill with clay animation, but that's the least of it. His characters are what really make this movie.
Wallace is the nominal star of the show. Brilliant as an inventor, he's a bit of a twit in all other respects. Gromit, his long-suffering dog, is at least as smart. Gromit is silent, but I keep thinking that he gets all the great lines - that's how good the body language is. The guest star in this program is, well, improbable. You get to find out for yourself, but this additional character is just wonderful.
There are endless little details that round out the story, including background music, visual gags, and fine points of Park's scenes. This is easy to enjoy, and easy to enjoy more than once.
