A Fish Called Wanda (1988) (C)
"One of the funniest romantic comedies of the decade!"
Tour-de-force performances from an unparalleled comic cast highlight this much-loved hit that Roger Ebert calls "the funniest movie I have seen in a long time!"
Monty Pythoners John Cleese and Michael Palin (Search For The Holy Grail, The Meaning Of Life) join Oscar winner Kevin Kline (In & Out) and Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies) in an entertainment so impeccably timed and executed that Time Magazine hailed it as "...genius - a film that redefines a great comic tradition!"
Four conniving jewel thieves, three Yorkshire terriers, two heaving bosoms and one proper British barrister... It all adds up to "a non-stop barrage of outrageous plot twists and over the top performances" (L.A. Weekly) when a girl called Wanda (Curtis) tries to deceive her Nietzche-quoting boyfriend (Kline), an animal-loving hitman (Palin) and an embarrassment-prone counselor (Cleese) out of a fortune in jewels in this hilariously funny farce! -- (C) MGM Home Entertainment, 1988, USA/UK.
Starring John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin.
