The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou


Bill Murray is a Jacque Cousteau-type character that meets his grown son for the first time and they go out on an adventure to kill a shark for revenge because it ate his friend. Directed by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums).


I love Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums is pretty good too. This movie I liked least out of the three, but I still thought it was pretty funny. It was disjointed and some jokes fell flat. It had an odd pacing to it. It was fun to watch, but I don’t think I ever need to see it again. It was a fun, little movie, but a tad too weird. It is what you would call quirky!

    I don’t remember much about this movie, other than a lot of the jokes being a bit too weird, even for me. I guess that’s just typical Wes Anderson, though I did like Rushmore much better.
