Mr. DuLac’s review published on Letterboxd:
Ah, well, it's no use prevaricating about the bush...
A Grand Day Out had a few rough edges in the animation department as Nick Park worked alone on some of it and you could clearly see a difference in quality in some scenes compared to others while some plot elements were completely abandoned as the film was just taking too long to finish. Park and company took the experience from that and perfected the animation in The Wrong Trousers while supplying it with a tight and hilarious script.
This is hands down my favorite of the Wallace & Gromit shorts. I still laugh hysterically with one simple look from that damn penguin. The comedy starts out small and builds to perfect pace until it reaches the ultimate comedic climax. It is THE perfect animated short.
