John & Becky’s Movie Review of Fantastic Mr. Fox

fantasticfoxIt’s Thanksgiving weekend and Becky and I are up in Breckenridge with the kids taking in some great Colorado skiing and snowboarding, but before we came up here we went to see the new cartoon Fantastic Mr. Fox yesterday. We went to the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Fandango website at Fantastic Mr. Fox describes the movie as follows:

“Mr. and Mrs. Fox (Clooney and Streep) live an idyllic home life with their son Ash (Schwartzman) and visiting young nephew Kristopherson (Eric Anderson). But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox’s wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community….”

The Review
Fantastic Mr. Fox can be summed up in one word – “stupid”. I don’t know who the Producers of this film paid off to get such great reviews, but we all sat in the theater wondering if it would ever end. Fortunately, it was only 80 minutes long and when it ended we all looked at each other like we just wasted not just money, but our time. I said, “What the cuss was that?”. By the way, that’s what they say in this movie over and over again.

It’s another weird George Clooney flick, only this time he’s in a cartoon about a goofy fox and his friends. There are some funny parts of the film, it’s totally over the kids head and the movie was really lame.

Don’t waste a dime on this movie, go see A Christmas Carol instead. This is definitely a rental and it’s pretty bad when the kids all rated it a don’t bother.
