Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out

Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out

Inventor Wallace and his dog, Gromit, make an unusual team. It is not clear who is the protagonist and who is the sidekick here, since Gromit often seems to be smarter and more aware of what’s going on around them than his master, Wallace. Gromit has the talent to sense the danger and detect the villains very early, and the misfortune not to be taken seriously by his master.

A Grand Day Out plays on a theme from 1940’s sci-fi thrillers and depicts technology gone horribly wrong. Wallace builds a spaceship so he can go to the moon for a „Cheese Holiday” (as
“everybody knows the moon is made of cheese”.) There they will encounter a local robot whose secret dream is to ski, and who will cause the duo trouble.
Adults will enjoy the brilliant humor and story telling while children will delight in the action-adventure sequences.
