Reviews:
"[Clooney] is tone-perfect in a movie that deserves to be called groundbreaking." - 09/17/2009 Rolling Stone


4.5 stars out of 5 -- "A witty script, brilliantly animated with stop motion techniques and wonderfully voiced by a cast led by George Clooney and Meryl Streep make quirky director Wes Anderson's first foray into 'toons a major winner and a total delight." - 10/12/2009 Box Office


"So old-fashioned as to look like something brand new, the stop-motion-animated FANTASTIC MR. FOX is as recognizably a Wes Anderson film as any of his previous features." - 10/14/2009 Variety


3 stars out of 5 -- "From lovely scenes with Ash and Kristofferson to Owen Wilson's cameo as a PE teacher and, yes, the clothes, this is very much a Wes Anderson film..." - 10/01/2009 Total Film


Included in Entertainment Weekly's "The Best Films Of The Year" -- "Anderson uses primitive analog magic to reinvent the innocence -- and the surprise -- of what an animated feature can be." - 12/25/2009 Entertainment Weekly


Included in Los Angeles Times's "Best Films Of 2009" -- "FANTASTIC felt like the avant-garde rebel out to stir things up." - 12/20/2009 Los Angeles Times


Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Ten Best Animated Films Of 2009" -- "Wes Anderson's landscapes and structures are picture-booky. Yet the extraordinary faces of his animals are almost disturbingly human..." - 12/24/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"Here, you might easily find yourself marvelling at a helicopter shot of a spread of fields, all immaculately woven together from different types of fabric like a patchwork quilt..." - 10/16/2009 Uncut
