Shaun The Sheep The Movie

What a terrific bit of madness this is. It even made me tear up a little. That is high praise indeed for a claymation show that is virtually wordless. The story works in any culture because the themes of love and friendship are universal. The story is also a beautifully constructed Rube Goldberg machine of comedy. Everything is considered and every challenge is met with ingenuity and creativity. The characters are all terrific and everyone gets what's coming to them, both good and bad. There are many laugh out loud comedy bits. Great film for the whole family as is everything Aardman Studios produces.

I like the "Silence of the Lambs" scene -- literally LOL!

That entire animal jail scene is hilarious.
