Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

An inventor and his pet dog try to solve the mystery of the Were-Rabbit that's terrorizing their village and eating all their giant vegetables. Wallace and his trusty dog Gromit have started a humane anti-rabbit business in anticipation for their village's annual Giant Vegetable Contest. With villagers wanting protection for their prized vegetables, the duo safely round-up the leaf-eating rabbits, and contain them in their house. Business is booming and soon, their home is filled to capacity with the animals. Wallace then invents a brainwashing machine and experiments on the bunnies to program them to dislike the veggies, however, the experiment goes wrong, the machine misfires and melds his mind to another bunny, later named "Hutch." Soon after, a humongous Were-Rabbit starts terrorizing the village, eating the giant crops. The villagers are in an uproar and have a meeting, held by the event organizer Lady Tottington. Wallace and Gromit are hired to investigate the mystery and to capture the creature. Consequently, Victor Quartermaine, Tottington's macho suitor wants to catch the animal himself, using violent means if necessary. His motive is to win Tottington's heart as well as earn the village's respect. Meanwhile, Gromit does a little digging of his own and discovers that Wallace, (not Hutch) is the Were-Rabbit. At the event, Gromit uses his prized squash to lure the rabbit, but when he appears, he causes quite a commotion. In the fray, Victor sees his chance to shoot at the Were-Rabbit. It then escapes and climbs on the roof, with Tottington in tow. When Gromit is in danger of falling, the Were-Rabbit jumps to rescue him and falls into a cheese exhibit below. Gromit dresses Victor in a makeshift rabbit costume, and soon the villagers chase after him. Tottington and Gromit revive the Were-Rabbit, now in Wallace's human form, with cheese. Gromit is pronounced the winner of the event and all is well again in the duo's little farm village.

Best part of story, including ending: I love Wallace and Gromit's quaint little village world filled with quirky characters and cute story lines.

Best scene in story: When Gromit puts two and two together, and realizes that Wallace is the Were-Rabbit.

Opinion about the main character: Wallace goes about his duties without a care in the world, tinkering and helping the townsfolk. He is perfectly happy existing in this little village he calls home.
