    Great review! Your right, this definitely isn’t a kiddie show. My daughter walked off in the first few minutes. My husband and 16 yr old daughter, were begging me to turn it off, but I wasn’t feeling well so I just stuck it out and watched the rest. While I don’t think it is the worst thing I ever seen, it definitely wasn’t what I had expected.

    George Clooney’s voice for The Fantastic Mr Fox, totally threw me for a loop. I think perhaps a high pitched voice would have been more suitable, but then who am I, definitely no casting director.

    I did enjoy some of the effects of the stop motion, which made the fur sway back and forth.

    Not a movie I would want to re-watch anytime soon.
