Genuinely original: a silly, hilarious and oddly profound adaptation for adult-sized children.

It’s unfortunate that the result is so unaffecting, especially in light of all the things the director does right.
With its virtuoso tomfoolery, Fantastic Mr. Fox is like a homegrown Wallace and Gromit caper. To Wes Anderson: More, please!
An adventure in pure imagination that plays to the smart kid in all of us.
Anderson has created a world as stylized and inventive as anything he's done... "Fox" is a visual delight.
Anderson has pulled off the most elusive of goals: He's made a nonchalant masterpiece, a movie that feels dog-eared and loved before it's even reached our hands.
This is no more a kids’ movie for kids than "Where The Wild Things Are"; it’s a film strictly for Wes Anderson fans of all ages. By now, they should know who they are.
The film's style, paradoxically both precious and rough-hewn, positions this as the season's defiantly anti-CGI toon, and its retro charms will likely appeal more strongly to grown-ups than to moppets; it's a picture for people who would rather drive a 1953 Jaguar XK 120 than a new one.
