For the Love of Ripeness

Seems the lovely Salma Hayek isn't the only attraction at this year's Film Festival in Cannes. The debut of the latest Wallace and Gromit caper Curse of the WereRabbit (aka The Great Vegetable Plot) has filmgoers rooting for the quirky claymation characters' showdown with a vegetable scoffing rabbit.

In their first full-length feature film, the [newly suited] pest control duo set out to protect their town's coddled gourds from a mysterious nocturnal melon eater. The success of the upcoming Giant Vegetable Competition is in jeopardy unless the night raider is apprehended! Will the Anti-Pesto patrol rise to the occasion? Or will all that ripeness be pillaged by some gluttonous beast?

Oh, boy. I can't wait.
