Very interesting to see an animated film by Wes Anderson, but I loved it. It is a film that both adults and kids can enjoy. All the characters in the film were excellent. You really get addicted to watching them. The voice talent was a great pick also. George Clooney was the perfect voice for Mr. Fox. Mr. Fox really had the same personality as him. Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray and even Willem Dafoe as an evil farmer. They really knew who to pic for this cast. This film really brought me back to a feeling when I was younger and would watch shows animated like this in the mid day. The film gives you a certain joy and happiness in your heart and believe it or not, you feel like you need more. You wouldn't think that a film like this could make you feel excitement, but it will. You truly get an inner energy while watching. The movie is cute, funny and really has a great story. Plus there are little things that happen that make this film more original. The script has many parts when the actor should swear. But instead of swearing, they say the word cuss. So it would be something like this. "What the cuss do you think you are doing?" Every time that happened, it made me laugh. Also, remember that they are wild animals. So when the foxes eat, they eat all crazy like. This is a very charming and fun to watch film.
I might have enjoyed this movie more if I hadn't been sitting there the whole time worrying about the effect is was having on my seven-year-old daughter, and fuming about how I'd been tricked into thinking this was a family movie.
The whole tone of the movie is dark and creepy - complete with gunfire, a violent tantrum, characters set on fire, and a fight to the death. It didn't help that every other scene had expletives that were changed to the word "cuss" in order to avoid a PG-13.
There were a few half-hearted laughs thrown in there for the adults but not much for kids to enjoy. And yes, the animation was fascinating and the music fun, but it all seemed wasted on a predictable plot.
