Fantastic Mr. Fox is my first choice for this addition to my blog. The other nine films will come over the next few weeks.

Based on the classic book by Roald Dahl, the film should not be dismissed as child’s fare. The humor is definitely high-brow and it’s one of those films that gets funnier the more you watch it and catch all the little intricacies.

The scene above features the explanation of the game “whackbat.” This is exactly what it sounds like when someone tries to explain cricket to me.

The funniest exchange:

“Coach, do you think I’m getting better?”

“Well, you’re sure as cuss not getting any worse.”
