** A possible subtle one to RoaldDahl himself: Mr. Fox has a writing board that he sets on his armchair, very similar to how Dahl preferred to write his stories.

* AdaptationalBadass: Rat in the book was a [[DirtyCoward spineless coward]] who fled from Mr. Fox at the slightest threat. Here, he's a switchblade-wielding enforcer for the farmers who's ''bigger'' than Fox (or any of the other animals, for that matter.)

* {{Bathos}}: In the way that only Wes Anderson can pull off. [[spoiler: Rat's death scene]] is both hilarious and sad, as he confesses in his dying moments that he'd become so addicted to cider that he wasted his life as an enforcer for Mr. Bean, and his old enemy grants him some [[LetThemDieHappy final moments of peace]] with a taste of Bean's apple cider, followed seconds later by [[spoiler: Rat]] dying with [[MoodWhiplash cartoony X's eyes for eyes.]]

* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler: Rat didn't die in the book.]]

* AnimalsNotToScale: Although it's not too bad for the most part (Mr Fox is taller than Badger but Badger is much brawnier), there's no other explanation for how ''Rat'' is taller than any of the foxes.

* DeskSweepOfRage: When Mr. Bean, leader of the local farmers, gets word that Mr. Fox has robbed them blind by digging under all of their security, he swipes everything off his desk, [[FlippingTheTable flips it]], and [[TantrumThrowing keeps going]], completely wrecking the trailer he was using as a headquarters.

* ClusterFBomb: Parodied. All of the adult male animal characters swear like they're in a Martin Scorsese movie, but each and every instance of profanity is replaced by them literally saying the word [[GoshDangItToHeck "cuss."]]



* DefyingTheCensors: Ash's parents apparently almost mistook him for being female before he was born.

* StylisticSuck: Yes and no. The visuals aren't meant to look "bad" so much as "amateurish." The characters are designed in a way that allows for visible chatter[[note]]StopMotion speak for something (usually dust or fabric) appearing to jitter when it's been accidentally moved between frames[[/note]] and the sets and special effects are dressed to emphasize their artificiality.

''Fantastic Mr. Fox'' is a 2009 animated family film centered upon the eponymous character's attempt to go straight, renouncing his chicken-stealing ways. It is filmed in StopMotion by Creator/CosgroveHall as director Creator/WesAnderson's first foray into animation. Including an all star cast, it has reviewed well, containing Creator/WesAnderson's indie mannerism and introspective tone, along with real charm and his trademark dysfunctional family.
