Wallace & Gromit in The Wrong Trousers (1993, GBR) C-30m. n/r D: Nick Park. Starring (the voice of) Peter Sallis. Possibly the best of the Wallace & Gromit shorts, this also works perfectly as a homage to heist movies and thrillers in general. Wallace realizes that he needs more cash to keep up their "modern lifestyle" and takes in a tenant, who, as it turns out to be, not only tries to poke Gromit out of the house but also has sinister plans with Wallace's latest invention, some programmable trousers. Hilarious, action-packed cartoon will make you gag with excitement. Love that suspense score! Winner of Best Animated Short Film at the Oscars.
