Looking for a fast way to earn dough, Wallace decides to make it. Armed with a batch of ovens, an army of robotic kneading arms, and an old-fashioned windmill, Wallace and Gromit start 'Top Bun,' their new bread-baking business. When bakers suddenly start disappearing, Gromit realizes that his master is in danger as he follows a twisting, turning trail of crumbs to solve a murder mystery.
I thought it would be longer. The fact that the lady was trying to kill Wallace throughout the video might be creepy or scary for little kids. It was pretty funny, but would have been better if it was longer.
This film totally lacked the wit and charm of the first three films. The story line was unoriginal, relying on the Wallace-meets-girl, Wallace-loses-girl formula of two of the other films. The movie was too fast-paced for me to enjoy the jokes, and had so much action that it hardly seemed like claymation. The film would be entertaining for small children, but not up to snuff for long-time Wallace and Gromit fans. Despite all that, I am happy to see Wallace and Gromit back.
