Fantastic Mr. Fox

Dig the life fantastic.


Fantastic Mr. Fox
This stop-motion animated film has had rave reviews. It tells the tale of Mr. Fox, who used to be a notorious chicken thief in his youth. As he matured he followed the straight and narrow, but in his twilight years he has once again developed finger-licking tastes. This creates a problem not only for him and his family, but all the other woodland animals too. It will require all his ingenuity to resolve the situation.

87 minutes.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconA far more successful union of hipster auteur and kid-lit source than Where the Wild Things Are, it also powerfully demonstrates the value of the right cravat.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconAn adventure in pure imagination that plays to the smart kid in all of us.

C. Fuchs quote iconQuite an entertaining offering and one that might just play as well -- or even better -- to adults as it does kids.
