So...see this movie. It rocks, if only for the following two points:

You finally get to see where Grommit went to school ...where else? Dogwarts.

In a climactic scene, Wallace is awakened by the smell of Stinking Bishop, a washed-rind cheese soaked in Bishop Pear Brandy, and my absolute favorite cheese in the world. Zingermans used to sell it, and I'd secret away tiny bits wrapped in wax paper for early morning consumption. Alexis would regularly open the fridge, exclaim at the horrible smell, and proceed to throw out suspicious old food. I would stand a bit away, looking innocent and hoping my stash went undiscovered.
