We went to see "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" (A+). The NY Times doesn't review it; however, Roger Ebert does.
We went to the Pageant Theatre in Chico, and they surprised us with a short Christmas cartoon as a gift, "Penguin Christmas Caper", which was really cute.
The Wallace & Gromit movie was lots of fun, and all the old kids laughed just as loudly as the young kids :-O It's full of visual and verbal puns in the funny British style. Wallace and Gromit have a humane pest control service called "Anti Pesto" (nudge, nudge).
Yes, Gromit knits for a bit in this one. He waits in the car on a dark night and knits to keep his fear away, needles clicking.
