I never really saw what the fuss was about, but it didn't offend me.

A silly film that stands on the backs of the fantastic comic timing and improv ability of its cast. Cleese and Curtis fit well into the satirical mold of this crime film spoof, but it's Kevin Kline and Michael Palin's oafish team of henchmen that are the real scene-stealers of this odd, but charming crime comedy.

Mixes satire, with farce and crazy characters. Abundant in a variety of laughs. It's a comedy-caper well worth your time.

An extremely well-written and funny English romp, with uproarious screwball farce and sharp Ealing-esque black humour. Worth a look for Kevin Kline's performance alone.

A Fish Called Wanda review

A hot tempered George Thomason (Tom Georgeson), pet lover Ken Pile (Michael Palin), weapons maestro Otto West (Kevin Kline) and con artist Wanda Gershwitz (Jamie Lee Curtis) have plan on stealing a jewel. Otto and Wanda frame George and eventually goes to jail. A popular and unhappily married lawyer Archie Leach (John Cleese) defends George and eventually falls for Wanda. Kevin Kline was too deranged, Cleese brilliant while Jamie Lee Curtis shines in a wonderful role. B'oasts a few good lines: Otto - "What do you have to do in this world to get people to trust you?!?!" Wanda - "I've known sheep that could outwit you. I've worn dresses with higher IQs!". A Fish Called Wanda is a good mix of comical criminals who would do anything to succeed financially ahead even if it means stepping...
