@edgarwright Fantastic Mister Fox? Fantastic.

@edgarwright You’ll love it. It’s one of Wes Anderson’s best. Brilliantly paced. Really funny. Looks beautiful. As good as the Aardman features.

@markromanek FANTASTIC MR. FOX is beautiful and funny. The attention to detail is just astonishing. Perhaps the most “Wes Anderson” film of all.

@edgarwright FANTASTIC MR FOX also has one of the choice soundtrack picks of 2009 with a brilliant use of The Beach Boys ‘Heroes & Villains”.


@hitfix Fantastic Mr. Fox is cussing great
