A must see for all ages. Runtime: 30 mins Release Date: 16 Dec 1993
Nick Park's hysterical plasticine duo Wallace and Gromit are back in this, their second outing, pitting themselves against the plotting penguine whose devious nature is taking advantage of Wallace's niavity. However, the ever suspicious Gromit is seeing through the Penguine's frosty exterior and sets out to uncover his secret scheming shadowy plan. The Wrong Trousers is the best so far from Peter Lord and Nick Park, putting even the outstanding Chicken Run and Close Shave in it's shadow. The characterisation is simply electrical. The ever suffering but mute Gromit and the <more>
clumsy well meaning Wallace muddle their way to stopping a truely outstanding criminal genius penguine whose pesona is portrayed with such subtlety and effect that the cute bird becomes the very essence of evil . Park and Lord's pace and cinematography in this animation medium are truely world leading, climaxing in the mad mayhem of a train-set chase through their house. The plot is simple yet full of nuances and details check out the headline's on Wallace's newspaper and the wall paper in Gromit's bedroom raising this above even the best that that big studios can produce. A film almost without fault which pays homage to the greatest and most farciscal works of the great Ealing comedy era there is something sinister happening but, it isn't that sinister really . Watch this film and let the quality and clarity of the humour seep into your soul. A true mile-stone of animation which deserved it's oscar like no other animation ever will.
"The Wrong Trousers" is filmmaking history that may never be paralleled (by SwingBatta)
Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers 1993 : Calling this delightful and hilarious Oscar-winning masterpiece brought to us by Nick Park, co-director of "Chicken Run," one of my all-time favorite films the best claymation short ever is a lot like saying that someone just bought the best vehicle from a used car lot, so I'll go ahead and call this the best animated short ever, which it definitely is. No questions asked. It's brilliantly shot, paced, scripted, directed...to paraphrase Mary Poppins, it's practically perfect in every way. You can't help but fall in <more>
love with every single character on the screen, from our always-lovable cheese-loving inventor and his loyal canine companion to even the devious jewel-thieving penguin Feathers McGraw the subject of the bestselling "Have You Seen This Chicken?" T-shirts . They are so well-rounded that Feathers nearly steals the show; it's impossible to keep a straight face at the sight of a penguin nervously wiping sweat from his brow, disguising himself as a chicken and firing a revolver, all while wearing the same stolid expression in his little peppercorn-black eyes. The wild train ride near the conclusion is a breathtaking segment that will never be topped by any other animation studio in this millennium or the next. I cannot recommend this work of genius enough. If you find anything whatsoever to dislike about it, I suggest seeking professional help immediately. Otherwise, pop this into your video or DVD player, put your feet up and watch this piece of animated history unfold before your very eyes. 10/10
Fantastic, entertaining work of art, with no Hollywood smut (by Ken-272)
This is a clever picture that gets better the more times you watch it. The attention to detail is amazing. It makes you wonder over and over again - How did they do that?I have this on DVD and enjoy taking time to check some segments out frame by frame to catch all the background details like book titles on the shelf and news paper headlines. It's enjoyable for youth and adults alike.
Superb Entertainment (by Theo Robertson)
This is a touching story . When Gromit found himself second to Wallace's affection I thought my heart would break . Poor Gromit , poor poor Gromit as he packs his bags and leaves the house my heart was breaking and the tears were flowing down my cheeks .Did I mention that Gromit is a plasticine dog in an animated movie ? No ? Believe me I'm not some bleeding heart animal loving do gooder - I'm a very prolific IMDb reviewer perhaps the most cynical one on this site and I was totally moved and entertained by this animated film . If I enjoyed it how can anyone else not enjoy it ? THE <more>
WRONG TROUSERS is the second and best of the Wallace & Gromit shorts . As with Nick Parks other work the animation where animals have idiosyncratic humanized personalities is superb but its the script co- written by Park and former DOCTOR WHO scriptwriter Bob Baker that is so enjoyable . The plotting and character interaction makes it touching and exciting and even this childless cynic enjoyed every single moment of it If you're a parent and are wondering how to keep the kids quiet for over an hour maybe you should show them an episode from the new DOCTOR WHO series followed by THE WRONG TROUSERS . If that doesn't work as family entertainment nothing will
Together with 'Wallace & Gromit: A Close Shave' and 'Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out' this is one of the funniest things I have seen. The clay animation looks great, the stories are very ingenious and the jokes are great. If you get a chance to see this, please do so. You will have a great time.I guess this one is the best from the three, although 'A Close Shave' comes close. You must see all three of them anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
"No more lodgers - more trouble than they're worth" (by ackstasis)
There's no use prevaricating about the bush, 'Wallace & Gromit in The Wrong Trousers 1993 ' is a whole heap of fun! Having not seen the film in years, I'd almost forgotten that it was so uproariously entertaining. It was 'Creature Comforts 1989 ' that took home the Oscar in 1991, but Nick Park instead planned a sequel to 'A Grand Day Out with Wallace and Gromit 1989 ,' a short film that, in my estimation, showed far more promise. This next effort sees the pair with their feet firmly on terra firma, but in an adventure that is no less wacky than the last. <more>
Despite economic woes, Wallace has built a impressive contraption for Gromit's birthday a pair of mechanical trousers. To offset his financial losses, Wallace opens up his home to lodgers, attracting the business of a creepy and silent penguin named Feathers McGraw. The sinister flightless avian soon sets about systematically severing the immortal bond between master and pet, in preparation for a devilishly cunning heist scheme.Nick Park's films are held in reverence by the animation community, and with good cause. Rarely before had the claymation medium been utilised to create such rich animated characters; even previous successes like 'Closed Mondays 1974 ' couldn't evade the fact that they were produced using shifting masses of clay. 'The Wrong Trousers' boasts but three characters only one of which can speak and yet the relationship between the three is superbly authentic. Maybe it's the personal touch of recognising the animators' thumb-prints on every character, but somehow Park manages to capture every nuance of their behaviour, every tiny inflection of emotion. In half an hour, Gromit doesn't utter a single word, and yet he communicates his sadness, anger and excitement through an affectionate glance or downcast eye. Likewise, the sinister Feathers McGraw attains creepiness precisely through his silence. That he doesn't speak keeps his motives veiled in secrecy, and those beady, ominous eyes are probably enough to give young children nightmares.Of course, most people love 'The Wrong Trousers' for its humour, and there's plenty of it. That sparkling British humour is truly allowed to shine, and the gentle voice-acting of Peter Sallis has the sheer sincerity to carry the frequently-offbeat jokes. Whereas 'A Grand Day Out' was a homage of sorts to the science-fiction genre, probably more in line with Georges Méliès than anyone else, this effort is an affectionate satire of the British crime films of the 1950s and 1960s. The evil penguin has the eccentric malevolence of Alec Guinness in 'The Ladykillers 1955 ,' though without the fondness for articulate speech. The object of the villainous heist scheme resembles the titular jewel in 'The Pink Panther 1964 .' With mock seriousness, amateur sleuth Gromit paces his way through the clichés of the genre, culminating in a hilarious madcap locomotive chase along miniature train-tracks, which our hero must lay down as he goes. This sort of impeccable entertainment deserves to run for far longer than thirty minutes.
Spoilers herein.I've been writing IMDB comments for about a year and a half now. I started with an interest in exploring how directors deal with the uniqueness of their vision, especially when self-aware or self-referential. Self-aware is when the film shows how it is made, like the obvious effects in `Beetlejuice.' Self-referential is when the film comments on itself, like when the story is about a filmmaker or writer who is worried about a technique that one can see in the film. Over time, I've become aware of what some directors call the actor problem. The public thinks of <more>
films first in terms of the people they see, the actors. And those actors drive the business. The problem is that actors have somewhat different goals than filmmakers, and often a strong actor will ruin the effect intended by a gifted director.So I've been studying the various techniques and instances where each party succeeds in a solution that works. They are few, it seems.Here is the ultimate solution: invent the actors. Shucks, invent their whole world. Invent their reason to be. Walt Disney shocked the whole system when he first did this. He created the actor, but not their world: Micky and later Donald and the others belong more or less in the ordinary world. However, the roadrunner and coyote belong in different world, one where the emotional physics comes from the mind of the filmmaker. We come to know just how that world works. Both the actors and their world come from a single mind.Now with claymation comes a particularly unique development: the actor is created, the world is created. But the camera and lighting is `real,' and modern notions of camera movement are used, just as in a `real' film. The technique is self-aware: one can see that the characters are clay, see the thumbprints.And it works, largely because one man's mind can be coherently presented in the context of real movies.`The Wrong Trousers' is the peak of this man's mind though. The first film was better in the sense of literally exploring the possibilities of another world and its physics. The claycraft was more primitive and appealing, but the story was weak and the actors hadn't really learned how to use their faces.The film after this `Shave,' necessarily involved many collaborators, which diluted the vision. And more people meant more costs which means lowered risks which means vanilla story. That ultimately led to the slightly clever but wholly mainstream `Chicken Run.'So this film is a peak of sorts. A couple things make it uniquely fine: the strong self-reference and the cinematic expression.The `Wallace' world is fully Hitchcockian here, moreso than before or after. Hitch's innovation was to advance the drama by making the camera act, in subliminal but powerful ways. Nick has studied and mastered this -- it is the real power of `trousers.' The technique is as much a matter of the camera humor as anything else.And the story is self-referential as well: the basic problem of the filmmaker is that each film cements the future of films that follow. There is a straitjacket of expectations from the viewer that you cannot escape. One example: if you have a spaceship battle, it must rumble and flash like the movies before or it will not seem real, though the actual behavior of such a battle could never really appear so.All film -- down to the smallest detail -- is so constrained. It is something deeper than formula.In his natural state, Wallace's `clothing' is unconstrained, only the manner in which he has to put it on. So here we have Wallace dressed by mechanical means. That's the normal state, Nick and Wallace tinker with those mechanics to have fun.But now comes the real challenge: how to put Wallace in a fully Hitchcock world with all the plot formula that entails. It is mostly mechanical, that. Well, in a self-referential way, you put Wallace in some automatic, mechanical pants, that literally walk him through the plot, that literally drag him through all the stuff you need to have a `real' Hitchcock film. It's a brilliant notion, one that ranks as the most successful in the history of film.But Nick is already creatively worn out or more likely compromised by the system. The torch passes to Pixar.
Probably my favorite Wallace And Gromit Short. (by LebowskiT1000)
Nick Park and his crew really out-did themselves with this film! I thought this installment was even better than "A Grand Day Out", the story is more interesting and even funnier. The little penguin guy is hilarious! And the entire scene with the toy train is superb!If you liked "A Grand Day Out" then you should definitely check this film out as well. If you like claymation, then you should also definitely check this film out. This film is great, and I hope you like it too. Thanks for reading,-Chris
Who knew? (by SSmith-5)
If you had told me that sitting for 30 minutes watching bits of clay would be entertaining, I would have said you were mad.But you would have been right.Thanks, Nick Park, for making this old man feel like a kid again.
