YMMV / The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

  • Broken Base: While the film is by no means hated, there's some disagreement among fans as to whether the feature retains the British charm that made the original shorts so beloved or if it's been too "Americanized" by DreamWorks's influence.
  • Ear Worm: The leitmotifs in the score are repeated so often in the movie you'll be humming them for days afterwards.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The morning after the first were-rabbit attack, Constable Mackintosh attributes the incident to arson, then adds "someone arsin' around!" This becomes less funny when you realise that the Aardman Animations warehouse burnt down in October 2005, on the day after this film premiered, no less. note 
  • He Really Can Act: Peter Sallis was already a well-respected and seasoned British actor, but this was easily his best performance as Wallace.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Lady Tottington and Victor are voiced by Bellatrix Lestrange and Voldemort, the latter of whom made his film debut less than a month after this film's release.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Victor still keeps trying to kill the Were-Rabbit even though he's aware of his identity as Wallace. If anything, discovering the Were-Rabbit is the man who's seemingly stealing his girlfriend away from him makes him even more determined to kill it.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Both transformation scenes. The second one especially, where Gromit is pinned against the door as Wallace is transforming and desperately begging him to help him.
