Shaun the Sheep

In order to get out of the day's work detail, a bright and ornery sheep plays a prank on the farmer that goes awry sending the confused old man's RV barreling down the hilly country roads and into the unfamiliar big city leaving it up to Shaun to rally the flock to go on a rescue expedition. Silent stop-motion animated feature stays true to the Aardman spirit but is extremely slight and seems to be lacking much of the creativity that made its precursor Wallace and Gromit and other of the studio's gems such enjoyable entertainments.
