From "Bottle Rocket" to "The Darjeeling Limited," director Wes Anderson has consistently used his quirky style and close friends to create a mini-genre of dark comedy all his own. Rather than stick with tradition, Anderson decided to try stop animation with the Roald Dahl story "Fantastic Mr. Fox." George Clooney and Meryl Streep take the lead (with Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray voicing smaller roles) in the film about a fox who tries to outsmart the farmers he steals from.
