The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou

Writer/director Wes Anderson and his pal/star Owen Wilson return with another off-kilter comedy. Bill Murray headlines as a nutty oceanographer who goes looking for revenge after his best friend is eaten by a mysterious shark. Throw in his estranged son (Wilson), his unhappy wife (Anjelica Huston) and his egotistical rival (Jeff Goldblum) and you've got the makings of a colorful, quirky ensemble comedy. If only the film tried a little harder to connect with audiences. The humor is a bit too dry, the settings a bit too odd for most audiences. 118 minutes
