Shaun the Sheep decides to cheats his way to a day off. But everything goes horrible wrong and suddenly the Farmer is stuck in the Big City with memory loss and Shaun and the flock most try to get him back to the farm without being caught by an over-eager animal control worker.

This British stop-motion animated movie is based on the popular television series Shaun the Sheep and sees the known and beloved characters go on a big city adventure. Any doubts that the voiceless humour of the considerable shorter TV episodes can be stretched to last a feature film can be put to rest. The movie is a smorgasbord of peculiarities and inventiveness that has you constantly notice quirky stuff in the background and incredible details in the universe created by the excellent Aardman Animation company. The story is simple, fun (and refreshingly without the usual lesson to be learned as in the average American animated feature) and through animal sounds and goofy sound effects delivers slap stick humour in best Benny Hill style. As always the animation is top-notch and with it’s fuzzy warm story, Shaun is a worthy member of the charming universe of Aardman.

 

Moviegeek info:

Twenty animators worked on the film, each producing two seconds of footage per day.
