A boisterous and magnificent treat.
Full Review | Original Score: A
April 4, 2011
It not only looks scruffishly beautiful, but it's hilariously off-balance, warm-hearted, perfectly composed and detailed (like every other Wes Anderson movie) and casually but meaningfully acted.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Fantastic Mr. Fox stops short of being a potential classic. It's just done extremely well.
October 27, 2010
Fantastic Mr. Fox is oddly hilarious, enthralling and overwhelmingly heartwarming; it might even be the best film of Anderson's oeuvre.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
September 24, 2010
Stop-motion animation filmed at half-speed, it's like a living pop-up book. Landscapes resemble carpet remnants and fire extinguishers plume what looks like cotton candy. Wes Anderson's team boundlessly, buoyantly fill each frame with fine flourishes.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
August 9, 2010
It is a sweet film with some lovable moments, but it will take a more ambitious role of the dice to restore Anderson to his former lofty status.
April 15, 2010
nobody can deny that this was a Herculean task, and Anderson has succeeded where so many filmmakers would have failed.

Funny, eccentric and great-looking, Fantastic Mr. Fox is utterly unique and highly entertaining.

Wes Anderson's stop-motion animation is perhaps the purest distillation yet of his nerveless twee cinema of quirk; it economically summarizes his themes of family and outsiderism through remarkably detailed models of forest creatures.

March 25, 2010
Playfulness permeates every frame with inventiveness both visual and verbal (and an eye toward appealing to both children and adults) in this quintessential Wes Anderson film.
February 3, 2010
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 1, 2010
A visual flair can't rescue an awkardly edited, talky film with little accessible wit--hard to imagine even the most patient child or their parents not being bored stiff.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 17, 2010
Though the animals may just be wild, Fantastic Mr. Fox is a neatly contained film of family and friendship. And there's something kind of fantastic about that, isn't there?
January 13, 2010
Although funny and suspenseful, Wes Anderson's style may be a little too obscure to carry over to the family film genre, but that certainly won't stop those of us who grew up with the story from getting nostalgic.

Une escapade réussie dans le domaine de l'animation pour le réalisateur qui aura su y reproduire cet univers chaleureux dans lequel il est toujours si agréable de se replonger
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
January 11, 2010
With one creative genius adapting the work of another, the result is a mesmeric, visual feast, a host of adorable eccentric characters and a truly wonderful, kid friendly, caper.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
January 6, 2010
The film incorporates all the quiet, improvisational style, dry humor delivery as found in other Anderson pictures, but combined with the proletarian fluidity of the animation; the result for audiences is a gleeful trance-like holiday.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
January 5, 2010
An alluring and curious hybrid of Roald Dahl's rich and dark storytelling and Wes Anderson's eccentric and erratic film mind.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 24, 2009
Anderson brings all of his quirks into the animation world, and it works.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 21, 2009
Has the anarchistic and madcap charm of an old Chuck Jones Warner Brothers movie.
