Movie Reviews

A flop? PAH!
Bret M. Herholz | Worcester, MA United States | 05/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I thought this "sequel" to "A Fish Called Wanda" was far superior and funnier than the original. Complete with the orignial cast to "Wanda", John Cleese stars as Rollo Lee who is in charge of an English Zoo financed by an insideous American company known as Octopus Ink which has told the Zoo they either make the animals more exciting or they'll be shut down. Jamie Lee "I'm in love with my body" Curtis and Kevin Kline play Willa and Vince, a couple of Octopus Ink exects who have come to oversee the companies demands on the zoo are carried out. Although, Vince would rather spend the time overseeing Willa. Michael Palin also returns as Bugsy, a chatterbox zoo worker that has a fascination with creepy crawly insects. This movie kept me laughing from beginning to end. Some of the best scenes are the most suttle and even the sexual innuendo's were tastefully done which I think is a rarity for a movie to achieve something like that nowadays. And Kevin Kline does a fantastic job as the conniving Vince. John Cleese also shamelessly pays homage to both Monty Python and Fawlty Towers which makes this movie a treat for fans to watch. So I recommend this movie highly."
This film really deserves to be released in widescreen

"Either you love this film or you don't care for it. It alldepends depends upon your particular sense of humor. In my case, Iadore it and find it hysterically funny.My problems with this DVD have nothing to do with the film. Instead, my problems are with the transfer. This disc is one of the worst excuses for a pan and scan disc I've seen. I gave up trying to count the number of times that two characters were having a conversation but only one of them could be seen! Often, there was dialog and you didn't even know another character was even there until they spoke!Even though I adore the DVD format, for this title, buy the VHS version in widescreen instead. You'll get to enjoy the film and actually see the action."
Good movies presented badly
Chris Truax | Cadillac, Michigan USA | 07/15/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very good movie but to get the feel of the full story it needs to be seen in the original aspect ratio of 2.35 to 1.Many scenes edges are chopped off and distractingly paned across.
Universal releases several other of its popular (and not so popular)films in widesceen format so why not this popular movie. I would recommend the widescreen version of the video tape if you can find it over the full screen dvd.
So to Universal get this movie on dvd the way it was filmed and intended to be seen, please !"
Not "A Fish Called Wanda"
Chris Truax | 07/03/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's not A Fish Called Wanda, and that's a good thing because it's a different movie. If it were a sequel, people would still complain as sequels are "never as good as the original". Both "Fish" and Fierce Creatures are comedies but in completely different ways. Whereas "Fish" is a more adult comedy using hilarious sexual situations and harsh language, "Fierce" has more of a Monty Python flavor of lunacy. I find Fierce Creatures the funnier of the two, but A Fish Called Wanda is the better made movie. If you're a Monty Python fan, I recommend this highly. If you're not, you need to rethink your values and hop onto the British humor bandwagon and stop filling your head with the infantile "gross-out" drivel that's so popular right now."
