This should be useful...

I actually really disliked the Fantastic Mr. Fox movie. But then again, i did have rather high expectations as I listened to the tape until it broke.

but then again... i didn't like avatar that much either

Well, FMF is a bit... on the experimental side, an "alternative film" for family viewing. A bit like Rumble Fish, in that some events happen, but it is never explicitly explained why (you have to guess for yourself).

The book has the traditional story structure, while the film is something completely different. I never read the book, and also expected the film to be a "tewwible Americanization", a Shrek clone. But I was pleasantly surprised the film turned out to be... what it was.

And Avatar is simply "Dancing With The Wolves", but with no real characters and IN SPACE!!!11111one111
