Nick Park's clay-animated Wallace and Gromit—an old British fuddy-duddy and his silent, eye-rolling dog—have endeared themselves to a devoted cult since they debuted in a 1990 short. The Warners-style slapstick and gentle Anglophilia charms children and adults alike, but what kills me are the fingerprint ridges that fade in and out of the characters' mugging faces, a reassuring reminder that handmade art can still captivate. This full-length adventure, Park's follow-up to his first feature, Chicken Run, took five years to make, and its winsome rip-off of The Wolf Man gives the title duo plenty to fuss over. Steve Box codirected. G, 85 min.
