To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The preposterous plot and strange declamatory acting do nothing to detract from the sheer delight of this tender, sweet, witty and weirdly affecting little masterpiece. I especially loved the wonderful use of music, the countless visual jokes, and the gentle but determined way Wes Anderson subverts so many tired genres (troubled adolescents, missing children, unfulfilled lives, unlikely friendships). Warmly recommended - and for Wes Anderson fans an essential addition.
Weird but rather wonderful. You WILL watch this more than once. The characters are all pretty much dysfunctional but in that oh-so-human way that we can easily relate too. You'll recognise traits in every one of them which make them al the more endearing :-) The kids do a sterling job of leading this star-studded cast. I just love it for those times I want some light (and slightly surreal) relief. Buy it!!
Can't really add much to better reviews but we thought it was great on so many levels script, pace, casting, music, the way it was shot & the way it captures a time. Gentle Humour well done. So much to enjoy - chuckling now remembering the conversations the young lass has with her mother & the way it was played - just great. & super quality. A film that has stuck with us as a great experience & unlike so many that have been enjoyed & then just stuck on the shelf this has come off to be watched & really enjoyed again. Definately recommend it.
Wes Anderson knows exactly what he's doing with this bizarre wilderness adventure. If you've seen The Fantastic Mr. Fox and you enjoyed it you'll certainly like this. Everything feels spot-on in this runaway story, and it's refreshing to see Bruce Willis in such a different role to his usual. If you enjoy some eccentric story-telling and cinematography this story will entertain. I wasn't dissapointed.
Such a funny film, love Wes Anderson and i think this is one of his best. More quirky than The Grand Budapest, but just as funny and sweet. Really lovely story and great performances by all in it, great family watch.
A charming movie, the like of which I haven't seen in a long time! Wonderful cameos from Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand ,Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton. Its a coming of age/romance movie but nothing like anything you would have seen before I would wager. The heroe/ heroine are both children who give a mafnificent performances It is a genuinely sweet movie and with a very dry sense of humour. A hit from Wes Anderson !!!
