Overview

A wily fox uses his formidable cunning to outsmart three feeble-minded farmers, who resort to extreme tactics to protect their chickens in director Wes Anderson's animated adaptation of the popular Roald Dahl children's book. For 12 years, Mr. and Mrs. Fox (voices of George Clooney and Meryl Streep) have lived a peaceful life in the wilderness with their son, Ash (voice of Jason Schwartzman). Shortly after their young nephew Kristofferson (voice of Eric Anderson) arrives for a visit, Mr. Fox's long-suppressed animal instincts begin to take over and the faithful family man resorts back to his old ways as a cunning chicken thief, endangering not only his family but the entire animal community as well. When evil farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean force the animals underground in a desperate attempt to capture the audacious Mr. Fox, dwindling food supplies force the frightened animals to band together in one last attempt to fight for the land that is rightfully theirs. Bill Murray, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, and Owen Wilson provide additional voices.

A true wonder. This film is as much for adults as it is children. The voice cast are perfect. Director Wes Anderson's take on Roald Dahl's short book is nothing short of marvelous.

I can't say enough good things about this movie- it's classic Wes Anderson, though, that sort of humor that is random and ridiculous and hilarious. I wasn't too keen on The Darjeeling Limited, but if you loved all the previous films (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Bottle Rocket, Rushmore) you're gonna love this one. It is quite different from the book in that characters and plot points were expanded to fill a couple of hours. But that only means it's entertaining to a wider range of ages, perfect for parents and kids. And the animation! These movies always have a great vintage tinge, and Mr. Fox doesn't disappoint. Just great. Great, great, great. Highly recommended.

A favorable review: engaging & funny entertainment. Action, adventure, daring, and cunning are all in this movie. Mr. Fox is the sly fox of this movie and he has more master plans than you could imagine. The characters make you think of marionettes come-to-life. As Mr. Fox says, "All of the animals are wild by nature and it is hard to change your nature." Therefore, we get to go along with Mr. Fox and watch his "wild" nature at work. This is LOL! entertainment adults will enjoy. This movie was a pure riot! Adults will enjoy this PG movie.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. Probably Anderson's best work. A good movie for all ages. Really funny without being stupid...great timing and witty. Fantastic. I highly recommend this movie.

A brilliant adaptation of a children's book. I haven't been won over by Wes Anderson's previous movies, but this film forced me to change my mind about what he's capable of. It's chock-full of excellent cast members for the animals' voices, amazing attention to detail in the stop-motion animation, phenomenal comedic timing and, oh yeah, great song choices that always add just the right texture and mood to various scenes. A smash hit, in every sense of the world - it's terrific escapism as we watch humans and animals vying to show who can get the final word, but it's also a statement on behavior since we see the primary human characters (the farmers) act in a far more destructive manner than the fox even though he repeatedly tells his wife he captures and kills other creatures because he is, after all, a wild animal. Recommended most highly for children as well as adults!

As a teenager I LOVE this movie. The animation is great, the characters are interesting and entertaining, and the story is wonderful. I have never actually read Road Dahl's original story, so I can't judge it solely on that. But from what I saw, it was easy to understand and genuinely appealing. The humor, for me, was one of the most memorable parts of the movie. Actually, this might be one of the funniest animated movies I have ever seen. The humor is sophisticated and witty, with memorable jokes and great comedic timing. The only issue I really had, though, was the demographic that the makers of the film were going for. The jokes and how the characters interacted seemed to feel more for teenagers and adults than little kids. Younger viewers may not understand half of the humor in it, but the jokes aren't dated or filled with pop culture references, so they will probably understand it when they get older. In short, Fantastic Mr. Fox is a wonderful film and I highly recommend it.
