I can't believe no one has come up with a thread for this (if they have I must be doing something wrong with the search). This is an absolutely wonderful film from Wes Anderson, surely his best since Rushmore. I was about to give up on him (though Fantastic Mr. Fox was also fantastic). I was only so fond of The Royal Tenenbaums and didn't like The Life Aquatic at all, but this little coming-of-age film set in the mid-sixties really made my day, especially since I doubled up and saw it (and paid for it, too) right after seeing Prometheus.
It's relentlessly quirky, and some people will doubtlessly hate it, but Rotten Tomatoes gives it a very high score. I might go see it again, and will certainly buy it.
