Synopsis

George Clooney and Meryl Streep lend their voices to this hilarious and heartwarming animated adventure from visionary director Wes Anderson. Mr. and Mrs. Fox (Clooney and Streep) live a happy home life with their eccentric son Ash (Jason Schwartzman) and visiting nephew Kristopherson. That is until Mr. Fox slips into his sneaky, old ways and plots the greatest chicken heist the animal world has ever seen. Based on the beloved, best-selling book by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Fantastic Mr. Fox is family fun at its finest.

Reviews

Richard Brody New Yorker | March 11, 2014

Visually, the movie is a wonder, with its profusion of detail and exquisitely focussed "performances" by the figurines, whom Anderson frames in images as precisely composed as those in his live-action work.

Peter Rainer Christian Science Monitor | March 11, 2014

Sometimes too clever by half, the film, replete with in-jokes, may in some ways work better for adults. Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwarztman also provide adept voice work.

Laremy Legel Film.com | May 06, 2011

A boisterous and magnificent treat.

Christopher Orr The New Republic | November 26, 2009

The same eye for immaculate compositions that had seemed increasingly to hem in his human actors here serves as the basis for some of the most inventive animated set pieces this side of Nick Park.

Ann Hornaday Washington Post | November 25, 2009

Adds yet another wry, carefully composed bibelot to the cabinet of curios that defines the Anderson oeuvre.

Peter Howell Toronto Star | November 25, 2009

The result is not only marvellous whimsy, but also something that advances the burgeoning retro-tech movement.

Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle | November 25, 2009

Anderson injects such charm and wit, such personality and nostalgia -- evident in the old-school animation, storybook settings and pitch-perfect use of Burl Ives -- that it's easy to forgive his self-conscious touches.
