"Fantastic Mr. Fox"
Wes Anderson's 2009 stop-motion animated film based on the Roald Dahl children's novel features a wise-cracking Mr. Fox, voiced by George Clooney, and his sullen son Ash, voiced by Jason Schwartzman, who feels rejected by his dad upon the arrival of a close relative. When Kristofferson enters the scene, he charms the pants off the entire family including Mr. Fox, much to Ash's dismay. Throughout an array of dangerous adventures involving stolen food and a showdown with a couple of farmers, Ash proves himself valiant and wins the respect and admiration of his old man -- or his old fox, that is.
