I love Wes Anderson movies! The story is based on a book by Roald Dahl. It follows the titular "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and his adventures of stealing from three farmers. If you enjoy dry humor, unique storytelling, and fun adventures, this one of those movies. The stop motion animation is gorgeous and the voice acting is a treat.

If you are on the train of Wes Anderson's twee fantasy worlds, this is in some ways a perfect movie. Comfort food for me.

This movie was TERRIBLE. Way too violent for my children.

This quirky stop-motion film has a dry humour that might not appeal to everyone but I quite enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to Wes Anderson's latest endeavour "Isle of Dogs", which seems stylistically similar.

What a movie! I need to watch it again so I bought it for my daughter for Christmas! Looking forward to watching it again!

This movie is so cool I watched it twice. There's something so special about stop-motion animation, especially with the furry creatures.

After viewing this, I bought my own copy. I'm sure there's other animations that can better entertain kids but not with Wes A's distinctive style. The reaction of Mr. Fox when he's told he is to be a father had me LOL! All other characters are very relatable. His interactions with a badger cohort evokes the fun Clooney & company must have had voicing this adventure.

The movie is broken so we were unable to view it ....I've attached a note (for return) asking the library to replace it. I wonder why people don't notify the library when an item is damaged!!

Boggis and Bunce and Bean. One fat, one short, one lean. These horrible crooks, so different in looks, were nonetheless equally mean.
