I am a huge fan of Wes Anderson (see Fantastic Mr. Fox right now!). I equally love Bill Murray. I knew this was one of Wes' first movies and like his film style so I thought I would give it a chance. I did not like it as much as Fantastic Mr. Fox or The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, I thought it went right along with The Royal Tenenbaums (which I liked and was the first Anderson film I saw). Quirky is the word that defines his films and Rushmore has a strange but funny way of coming across. First of all, the movie is smart and works together well with a lot of imagination. Second of all it is childish. Combining these two is where Rushmore really works. Bottle Rocket is next on my queue. Lets see if Wes can go 5 for 5. 7/10
