Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this British claymation movie delves into some darker themes, but with slapstick humor and even a bit of pathos. One main character gets involved with a deceptive love interest while the other hunts for a serial killer. In an attempt to fight off the killer, the main characters endure tense moments, including being kidnapped and threatened by a bomb.
Romance between Wallace and Piella is central to the movie, and a bit scary because viewers know she's dangerous. Funny romance montage includes ceramic wheel scene from Ghost. Gromit finds love with Piella's dog.
The premise is that a serial killer is loose and threatening the main characters. Both Wallace and Gromit face serious peril, always downplayed with slapstick humor.
Villian says "hates."
Gromit's goal is to protect Wallace from danger. He does everything he can, including risking his own safety to help his friend. Piella's dog chooses to stand up to her owner and fight against evil, thanks to the support of Gromit.
