A family film needs a family to review it. Please welcome guest reviewers Ruby (4 years old), Mia (also 4), and their mum Vicki (ageless).
Aardman Animations’ latest family friendly feature (and Wallace & Gromit spin-off) has Shaun, Bitzer and the rest of the flock outwitting a dozy Farmer and hatching a plot to get the day off from herding and shearing.
After one bumpy caravan ride, preceded by a very funny twist on the old routine of counting sheep, they find themselves all thrust into the Big City. The Farmer has amnesia, but at least still knows how to use a pair of clippers, and so becomes a famous hair-stylist (still wearing his baggy pyjamas).
Sheep dressed up, sheep (not) pulling off rescue attempts, angry dogs in prison and a hoggery of pigs raving to Primal Scream’s Rocks while properly off their snouts, all ensured that two 4-year-olds and their tag-along parents were well entertained.
“What’s the matter with that pig?”
“Mummy! Stop laughing so loud!”
“I like when the sheep were pretending not to be sheep.”
“Look, that dog is in jail. He’s scary.”
“HA HA HA, looook!”
