Another delightful Wes Anderson film. When I saw this in the theater when it first came out I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Everyone told me I'd love it. So I was almost afraid to love it. And I didn't love it. Then I saw it for a second time, and sure enough, I loved it.
It was great to have a couple of 12 year olds as the protagonists. Hello, Bill Murray and Bruce Willis. Witty dialog. A charming plot. A million and one Wes Andersonisms.
