Judging by the giggles of the kids I took, Shaun and his pals provide a delightful, if undemanding, treat. Setting out from Mossy Bottom Farm to the Big City, the flock search for their farmer, who loses his memory only to gain accidental fame as a trendsetting hairdresser. There’s little plot, only a cursory villain (an over-zealous animal control officer), and no dialogue, in what amounts to a silent movie, only brimming with nonsense noises, innocuous songs and stop-motion sheep.

An absolute delight in terms of set and character design, with sophisticated blink-and-you’ll-miss-it detailing to counterbalance the franchise’s cruder visual trademarks.

Only Aardman could find an irresistible movie in industrial amounts of clay and a story of an amnesiac farmer and his flock at loose in the big city.

The charm of Shaun the Sheep is that you don’t notice it for a moment.

I could feel it scrubbing my soul clean like a cinematic pumice stone.

Here's a good yarn, the feature debut of Shaun the Sheep, the biggest stop-motion star to come along in animation since Wallace and Gromit.

The animation itself is pleasingly tactile and hand posed, up to Aardman's usual high standards.

The film's heart is in the right place, and it serves as a sweet antidote to the slick, computer animated family entertainment of the now.
