Just watched this last night for the first time (it took me a while to get around to it because of the mixed reviews). Let me say I do agree it is far from his best. And I might be biased as an enormous Wes Anderson fan, but I feel that no critics who have given this movie a harsh rating can really justify why they did outside of "only Wes Anderson fans will get it." Anybody else with me? This is a funny, gorgeously filmed/animated adventure! What's not to love if you DO "get" Anderson?
