Fantastic Mr. Fox movie review by Austin

Boggis and Bunce and Bean
One fat, one short, one lean
Those horrible crooks
So different in looks
Were nonetheless equally mean.

The visually ravishing animated movie The Fantastic Mr. Fox follows a fox, voiced by George Clooney and dressed in a natty brown corduroy suit, as he cheerfully and recklessly takes his thieving ways a little too far and brings down the wrath of some sour-faced poultry farmers on his family and friends. Based on a lesser-known book by children's author Roald Dahl (who wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach), the movie is the work of Wes Anderson (writer-director of Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums), who expanded and elaborated on the original story; the combination is inspired. Anderson's sensibility--his fondness for meticulous compositions, coordinated colors, and narrative filigree--can sometimes seem finicky and stiff in live-action movies, but it's exquisitely suited to the painstaking art of stop-motion animation. Every corner of the screen crackles with visual invention and whimsical humor. The top-notch vocal cast (which also features Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Michael Gambon, Owen Wilson, and others) create vivid personalities that perfectly mesh with the movie's lush colors and luscious textures. The Fantastic Mr. Fox is an off-beat gem, a giddy mix of adult emotional issues, wild animal behavior, and childlike delight.

My Review

I had never heard of this movie until a few months ago. The day I heard of it, I fell in love.

This is most certainly the funniest movie I've seen in a very long time. It has some of the most memorable quotes I've ever heard. Whenever someone cusses in the movie they'll say exactly that. "Cuss". So, there are a lot of "What the cuss?!" and "You little cuss!". It's hilarious when your expecting them to say a something that's not so good. The making of this movie was awesome. Using claymation stop-motion, director, Wes Anderson did an awesome job of making the movie look... Well... Awesome.

It's a very long process. But, I think that all of that work payed off. This visual stuff (not to mention the audio stuff) is pretty cool.

The movie has an extensive cast of great voice actors. George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Michael Gambon (who played Albus Dumbledore) and many others. The makers of Fantastic Mr. Fox did a great job of getting the most out of these great voices. The pure humor that is in this movie is such that I will now give it


Hey all you people who read for fun. U R COOL.

*This movie is pretty clean, it is rated pg.
