I saw this movie when it opened, and I liked it enough that I want to see it again. It's based on a Roald Dahl story which I haven't read, so I can't comment on the book-to-screen transition. But it's funny, sly, and weird, so I recommend it.
It's a stop-motion animation story of a fox and his woodland friends who launch an all-out war against the local chicken farmers.
The lead characters are voiced by George Clooney and Meryl Streep.
RottenTomatoes.com says 93% of the critics who reviewed it liked it, and sums it up thusly:
"Consensus: Fantastic Mr. Fox is a delightfully funny feast for the eyes with multi-generational appeal -- and it shows Wes Anderson has a knack for animation."
Reminder that traffic headed west towards the theater has been horrible lately, so leave earlier than you think you need to! Movie starts at 7:15 so let's try to grab seats a little after 7.
See you there!
