It may be that I haven’t seen enough animated films in my life, but the animation in Fantastic Mr. Fox was unlike anything I have ever seen before, or at least that I can remember. The cast of critters was glowing with star power, the soundtrack was filled with delectable tunes and there was a decent amount of humor. There were points where I found Mr. Fox’s dialogue to be somewhat snappy and unnatural, but it’s not a big issue. This adorably delightful flick delivers a sizable amount of family fun, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

Verdict: Rent It
