If I were to sum this film up in a single word, it would be fantastic. To use a few more:
(86) This film is pure, magical fun from start to finish. The dialogue is witty and highly comical (including the substitution of “cuss” for almost every expletive used), the characters are well developed, and the animation is stylish. A common complaint of Dahl fans is that the film wanders considerably from the source text. Not having read it, I can scarcely comment on Fox as an adaptation. I will, however, express that it is very much in keeping with the high standards set by Anderson’s previous works.
