4. Fantastic Mr. Fox
Based on the Roald Dahl children’s book, Anderson utilizes stop motion animation, talking animal puppets dark humor, and the sexy voices of George Clooney and Meryl Streep to bring this book to life. Mr Fox (George Clooney) is a master thief and always goes on “raids” to steal from the surrounding farms. When he almost gets killed by a farmer, his wife (Meryl Streep) announces that she is pregnant and asks him to stop. Fast forward a few years, Mr. Fox is bored out of his mind writing for his local newspaper and taking care of his wife and odd son (Jason Shwartzman). However, when an opportunity arises to steal again, Fox decides he wants to do one more raid. With hilarious side characters and an array of innuendo, this film is a treat for adults as well as kids.
