Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

I recognized the characters, but I am not a fan. Not because I don't like them, but only because I hadn't seen any of their shows. My 11 year old was enthusiastic about seeing the movie, saying he's seen W&G many times before.
The first 15 or 20 minutes I was confused, not knowing any character background I found myself just trying to get into the film. There were two grown men behind me laughing hysterically to the point where I thought maybe they were seat-fillers, put there to guffaw and make a big deal of the film. But then as other adults around us started to make the same, deep belly laughs I realized it was genuine. I also started to get into the movie and found myself laughing along with them. The twins cackled as well, as did my 8 year old. It was worth going to the movie just to hear their giggles.
All in all I enjoyed the film, the plot was cute and the characters were entertaining enough to keep my interest (not always an easy task). The only person in the family that did not like it was my 8 year old. But then again, he's such a goofball I can't get a straight answer from him anyway.
