With a plan to exact revenge on a mythical shark that killed his partner, Oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) rallies a crew that includes his estranged wife, a journalist, and a man who may or may not be his son.
This is the story of Mr. Fox (George Clooney) and his wild ways of hen heckling, turkey taking, and cider sipping, nocturnal, instinctive adventures. He has to put his wild days behind him and do what fathers do best: be responsible. He is too rebellious. He is too wild. He is going to try "just one more raid" on the three nastiest, meanest farmers that are Walter Boggis (Robin Hurlstone), Nathan Bunce (Hugo Guinness), and Franklin Bean (Sir Michael Gambon). It is a tale of crossing the line of family responsibilities and midnight adventure and the friendships and awakenings of this country life that is inhabited by Fantastic Mr. Fox and his friends.Written by
Franklin Bean (Sir Michael Gambon) has more than a passing resemblance to Roald Dahl. See more »
When Latin names of the animals are displayed in the film they are not written in the correct format. "Latin" names, more correctly termed scientific names, are standardized within the scientific community worldwide and written in a specific format, e.g. Genus species with the genus capitalized, the species written in lowercase, and both written either in italics or simply underlined. The film shows both genus and species capitalized. See more »
What'd the doctor say?
Nothing. Supposedly it's just a 24-hour bug. He gave me some pills.
I told you, you probably just ate some bad gristle.

I love this movie. The visuals, the endearment from the characters, the ARCS oh boy the character arcs in this movie are SO SO AMAZING. Anderson makes you feel and care for the characters from square one which is a supremely difficult task to do (most directors/writers instead employ making them dislikable because it's way easier). The visuals are top notch and super original which deserves + 1 star on its own so really this movie gets a 11/10 from me.
The story and the overall effect of this movie to inspire artistic creations and not be afraid of telling a story from your unique perspective is what this movie should really be looked on about. It's a masterpiece.
