Fantastic Mr. Fox

Wes Anderson films have a very distinct quality about them, and it is awesome to see that quality transfer almost effortlessly to an animated movie. It was a lot of fun, I found myself laughing out loud multiple times. Having an extremely talented voice cast doesn’t hurt either. George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwatrzman, Bill Murray, Michael Gambon, Owen Wilson, and Willem Dafoe make up about a fourth of the cast, and all of them do a great job. Especially loved Jason Schwartzman as Ash, the moody son of Mr. and Mrs. Fox. There are also some really fun bits to make it accessible to kids. Like whenever the characters want to swear, they say the word “cuss”. Overall, a really fun movie that not only Wes Anderson fans should see, but others should too.

8/10
