It short, it's fantastic. At 87 delightful, subversive and hilarious minutes, there's so much attitude in this stop-motion puppet fantasy, the hearts of children and adults alike will soar to the heavens.

Despite looking like a children's movie, I don't think kids would like it very much...softens Anderson's fetish for randomness and forces him to stay on track...his kooky brand of humor just works better as a cartoon

uses a deceptively childlike idiom and woodland creatures to explore human nature in most profound and piquant fashion.

The style, like the theme, is poised gracefully between order and chaos.

This is about as quote-unquote fantastic as it gets.

Wes Anderson's typically quirky approach to a slim Roald Dahl story is a genuine charmer even if it's slightly over-extended.

So much fun, I can hardly stand it. A great film with wonderful voice performances by the entire cast. You have got to see it. Paul Chambers, CNN.

I'm starting to wish every auteur would go and make his or her own stop-motion animated flick; what a fantastic experiment that could be.

"Fantastic" might be a touch hyperbolic in describing director Wes Anderson's stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Fantastic Mr. Fox, but only by a whisker.

Laramie Movie Scope

An animated film not aimed at children. It is as thought-provoking in its own way as is 'Animal Farm.'

no longer does Anderson seem like a childish filmmaker trying desperately to be idiosyncratic and zany, but rather an adult filmmaker using a children's story to speak across generations

"Wit, grace, and charm" is a lyric for one of the songs in the film, but it could have been describing the film itself. Told with its breezy style, this could be the most charming film of the year.

In hindsight, it seems obvious now that Wes Anderson should make a stop-motion animated film -- the medium highlights all his strengths while nullifying his limitations.
