#783. A Fish Called Wanda (1988)
Why It's In The Book: "A caper comedy of manners and not so subtle Anglo-American cultural disconnects, the success of Charles Crichton's A Fish Called Wanda lay in its treatment of stereotypical gangster types... laughs aside, A Fish Called Wanda offers a triumphant reappraisal of one-time scream queen Curtis as a comic actress while providing a launch pad for Kline's ascent into critical circles as an awards-worthy performer. Effortlessly, but most of all humorously, the film elevated the careers of Monty Python alums John Cleese and Michael Palin and made them Hollywood stars in the genre." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Siochembio - 10/10
"I am sitting here, literally giggling to myself, as I watch the opening credits of A Fish Called Wanda for the hundred billionth time."
Chip Lary - 9/10
"I consider it one of the funniest films I have ever seen."
Kurosawa_Lover - 9/10
"This is one of the funniest films I have ever seen. The laughter is nearly constant. Not a scene goes by without at least a chuckle, and some scenes had me laughing so hard I had violent coughing attacks afterward."
Movie Guy Steve - 9/10
"How funny is it? Allegedly, in Scandinavia, a man literally died laughing while watching."
Nicolas Krizan - 9/10
"Mixing loads of British peculiarities with just as much American screwball antics, this turned out to be a huge hit."
Tim Burrow - 9/10
"There is plenty of American humor for most viewers to get enjoyment out of it. But Python fans will be plenty satisfied as well, thanks to a madcap script and performance by John Cleese, and Michael Palin's hapless, stuttering Ken."
Adolytsi - 8/10
"There’s so many different types of humor here that there’s basically no reason to not find something to enjoy about this film, as long as you have a funny bone in the first place."
Klaus Ming - 8/10
"Irreverent and often bawdy humor, this screwball comedy redefines and the British caper with a little help from the Americans."
Kim Wilson - 7/10
"Overall, A Fish Called Wanda is a passable 1980s comedy. Unfortunately, to watch it you must hear and see everything that makes the decade one of the worst of the Twentieth Century."
Squish - 7/10
"Otto... becomes increasingly jealous, dangerous and recklessly stupid, but doesn't take it well when he's called on it. Unfortunately Otto's a professional killer with a sociopathic streak."
