Our take

Wes Anderson’s warm and irreverent indie debut shows off much of what we’ve come to love about his unique, slightly surreal cinematic vision. Co-written by (and starring) Owen Wilson, this idiosyncratic story about a trio of oddballs has a youthful zest for life, and is full of irrepressible charm.
