Movie Info

From the creators of the Academy Award (R)-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic. The countryside isn't always as calm and peaceful as it's made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner's own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieties of modern life.

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Renner and Imbert spend more time dishing out jokes than they do weaving the kind of meaningful narrative that made Ernest & Celestine so special, yet while Fox is more of a slaphappy romp than a morality play, there's still a method to the madness.

...intelligent humor and animation that gives an almost artisanal touch of classic adaptations. [Full Review in Spanish]

January 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The animation is full of personality, the characters fresh and engaging, and there's plenty of gentle yet irreverant humour.

December 6, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This is an utterly adorable, endearing and wonderful all-ages feature that's as much a love letter to the hand-drawn art form as it is to comedy in general.

November 4, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Spry and light-on-its feet ... with madcap, slapstick humor that will appeal to kids and adults.

October 4, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

An affectionate and energetic madcap effort that might not completely match its predecessor's bursting heart, but still remains charming and engaging.
