Has anyone seen this yet?

I'm a big fan of W & G, and am going tonight!

I'm going to see it as soon as a friend comes back from the States. It's a "must see" for me.

Not released here 'til next week. I hope that W&G survive the jump to movie length - sometimes half hour shows just don't work when extended.

W&G wasn't even half an hour - 20 minutes I think

Orange have some clips here - looks good to me!

And all the preliminary reviews imply it is actually very good. Chicken Run came from the same studios, so they have some experience in film making.

Saw it friday afternoon, Absolutely Freakin' Fabulous. You have to really pay attention, lots and lots of hidden sight gags.

I haven't laughed that hard for a while.

I saw it a few weeks ago. Very funny. There are a few hidden jokes in it, so you will need to pay attention, but well worth it.

It rehashes the old jokes from the TV programmes, although that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's view of flat-caps-and-pigeons North England doesn't really exist, and never did, so the jokes have a limited shelf-life. Hence after half way it became rather ploddy.

It's also far too long. The TV programmes had perfect length, and padding the film out makes the plot seem very slow and cumbersome.

That being said, it's a film aimed at the grown ups that loved the TV programme, and they (not kids) will love it. No where near as good as Chicken Run, and not in the same class as Tim Burton's new film, Corpse Bride.

The creator is from Portland, OR if I remember correctly.

Simply a great claymation movie series! Funny, and clever.

I saw it tonight...thought it was really great.

Look for a lot of inside jokes and references that make it a real hoot!

Far from it:
Born in Preston, Lancashire, on December 6, 1958, Park was exposed to both chickens and animation at an early age. ....

Sad news - sounds like a blaze means that lots of the models and sets from the W&G productions have been lost.
