Quirky and funny movie about a clever fox returning to the stealing antics of his youth. He plans to make 3 big scores against the 3 biggest and baddest farmers in the region. After he succeeds, the farmers strike back, and Mr. Fox finds himself along with his family and neighbors trapped in a hole while the farmers dig for them. Eventually the group gets itself out of the jam by following a crazy scheme of Mr. Fox that uses everybody's talents. The group finally ends up in the sewers below the town, and find a way to the super market where the can steal plenty of food with much less danger (at least for now). The film emphasizes family.
The most memorable characters are the son and the nephew of Mr. Fox.
The most memorable scene is a distant meeting between Mr. Fox and a wolf. The scene is meant to bring up the descent of domesticated (or nearly domesticated) animals: surely the change that domestication brings about nonetheless leaves a spirit that still calls to the wild nature that the animal once was. Our cats are tigers in miniature. Our dogs are wolves in sheep's clothing.
What a disappointment! I read everywhere what a great movie "Fantastic Mr Fox" was but after half an hour I got bored and after another half hour I turned it of!
One of my all time favorite movies!
