One very minor nitpick I have about this release though is that unlike the earlier 20th Century Fox release which has both Spanish and French audio tracks and multiple subtitles, the Criterion Collection release sadly only has an English language audio track and subtitles. This makes it especially disheartening for those who wish to try and import this release..
The film is almost more geared towards adults than children with it's dialogue and themes but the furry animals give the children enough to keep their attention.
I thought that "Up" was the runaway best animated film for 2009 but I'm thinking this film is a SOLID runner up.
The Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Download versions are EXCELLENT! I love that I have a version always on my computer for quick and easy access and copies for the home theater as well as the "car theater" and the price ($17.99) was just right.
But "Fantastic Mr. Fox" has changed everything. I don't know if it is due to the cartoon nature of the movie, or a screenplay that was better than the others; but for the first time I feel like I understand what Wes is trying to do. The characters were perfect, the humor was funny, and the dialogue was witty. I was truly surprised that one movie set at the right pitch could change my entire perspective on a director's body of work. I look forward to watching the "Grand Budapest Hotel" with my new found understanding of Wes Anderson and his surrealistic world.
My son read the book after watching the movie and asked "where are all of the 'good' characters? Yes, the creative talent behind this movie took dozens of liberties to translate the book into film, but I love each and every one of them.
A wonderful movie for Wes Anderson fans and a gateway to getting your kids read to enjoy The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Rushmore when they are older.
