Most Enjoyable :)

The Fantastic Mr Fox

I finally sat down to watch the film 'The Fantastic Mr Fox' this evening and I am really glad that I did. :) It's an animated film based on the Roald Dahl children's book of the same title. For those who have not yet seen the film you will recognise the familiar voices of both George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray.

The film tells the story of a newspaper columnist who decides to move his family to a nicer home. He purchases a home within a tree base which is close to a large facilities run by farmers. Mr Fox and friend make plans to steal produce and poultry from the farms. The farmers shoot off Mr Fox's tail after they catch him red-handed. Mr Fox and his family go underground, however the farmers try to dig them all out after they find their escape tunnel. Eventually the animals all retreat into the sewers when Mr Fox finds out the farmers have captured his son Kristofferson and they use him to try and lure Mr Fox.  A counterattack puts paid to all of that and Kristofferson escapes with the aid of his father.

They all live happily ever after when they discover a new drain opening which leads to a new food source at a supermarket owned by the farmers. The end. :)

PS I almost forgot, watch out for the character named 'Agnes' in the film....my middle name. ;)
