Matthew Buchanan’s review:
I don’t care what you say about his scrupulously constructed dioramas and his detached realities and his whimsy without emotion and his objectification of young love. Sometimes a charming, harebrained fairytale strikes just the right note, and this one was made all the better by Bruce Willis and Ed Norton playing against type as New Penzance police captain and scout master, respectively. Anderson’s best live-action film since Rushmore. Great titles too.
