This is a film that you have to watch a few times to enjoy it - i didn't the first time but after seeing it a few more times i did enjoy it!
FANTASTIC MR. FOX is visionary director Wes Anderson's first animated film, utilising classic handmade stop motion techniques to tell the story of the bestselling children's book by Roald Dahl (author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach). The film features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Wally Wolodarsky, Eric Anderson, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Jarvis Cocker.
Mr and Mrs Fox (Clooney and Streep) live an idyllic home life with their son Ash (Schwartzman) and visiting young nephew Kristopherson (Eric Anderson). But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox's wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers - Boggis, Bunce and Bean - who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr Fox at any cost.


No it's a terrible, humourless film. The script is aimed at adults not children. I guess they thought the kids would like the animation, but most of the time the characters look like they are standing in a wind tunnel due to the lack of control over the fur. Please do not buy.

Can't agree - loved it. So did my daughter! Just waiting for a sensible price on blu-ray myself

Must admit I thought it was poor. The animation is clunky - not a patch on Wallace and Gromit with it's hundreds of hidden jokes - and the story is neither true to the book nor fresh enough to sustain interest. My kids found it boring and I think it would have sank without trace if it didn't have big name actors attached to it.

Awesome film, not some dumb movie like ice age 3. if I had kids I would love them to enjoy this and films like Nightmare before xmas, coraline etc.

Amazing film. Anyone who thinks it's terrible just doesn't get it, and has probably never seen anything else by Wes Anderson. HOT!

Fantastic film!

Wes Anderson = Genius. Simples
