“A Grand Day Out” (1989)

This first Wallace & Gromit short made by Nick Park is a real treat. Even though not much happens, you can’t help but be charmed and sucked in by its simplistic nature. It may not be a laugh-a-minute comedy, but it’s still a very difficult film to not at least have a smile on your face throughout the majority of it. On top of that the stop-motion animation, while still rough around the edges in some spots, is just so fluid and alive. Chances are, you’ve already seen this and these words of praises are nothing new to you. I guess consider this a review to act as a reminder that this exists, and that maybe it’s time to revisit a great classic.
