Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Director Wes Anderson makes very specific films for very specific audiences. He’s got a way of going about directing his films that just doesn’t click with everyone. I’m a fan a big fan of Bottle Rocket and The Darjeeling Limited, but the rest of his body of work just doesn’t speak to me. Fantastic Mr. Fox was okay, but nothing else really stands out. Moonrise Kingdom is one of those films that doesn’t stand out, but it’s still a fun film, full of great characters."
