“This story is a lighthearted adventure comedy. I too am guilty of being one of those Wes Anderson fans who salivate over all the small details but while watching this I quickly detached myself from the director and his style and previous work and just let u0026quot;The Life Aquaticu0026quot; take me along. And thatu0026#39;s what you have to do. Itu0026#39;s different from his other stuff in that itu0026#39;s more plot driven. There are some wonderful characters but they have to deal more with outside complications than internal struggles. It is similar in tone and style to Robert Altmanu0026#39;s u0026quot;M*A*S*H,u0026quot; what with all the juggling of fighting and death (serious themes dealt with in an objective comedic manner). Thereu0026#39;s also some Fellini moments (it was mostly filmed at Cinecitta). I loved it. Donu0026#39;t go into this film as a biased hipster Wes Anderson fan, clean the slate and take it with an open mind. Itu0026#39;s certainly sillier than Rushmore or Tenenbaums, but itu0026#39;s just as ambitious and exponentially courageous with shots and tone. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo reiterate: more action oriented, funny as all get out, and quite possibly the funnest Iu0026#39;ve had in a theater all year.”
