Never been a Wes Anderson fan - slept through Rushmore; stopped watching Royal Tenenbaums halfway; entirely avoided Life Aquatic and Darjeeling Limited. If it wasn't for the stop-motion animation, an attractive form I hadn't seen for years, Mr. Fox would have probably met the same fate. But Roald Dahl's everlasting storytelling charm mixed with Anderson's raw comedy style, makes this a somewhat pleasant experience - especially during scenes in which characters look idiotically into the camera.
