  1. A wildly funny sex farce that smartly combines big-time silliness with sophisticated wit.
  2. Amazing comic performances...give this comedy its lovely manic pace, kept just within the realm of sanity.
  3. Combining the gentle with the vulgar as only the English can, this lively comedy is bursting with character and energy.

    The "nonsequel" that regathers the inspired loonies who scaled the heights of giddy anarchy in 1988's "A Fish Called Wanda," is a different comic species. [24 January 1997, p. 3D]
  6. 40
    Things quickly degenerate into a series of juvenile jokes about flatulence and bosoms, and by the end the cast is reduced to frantically manhandling a corpse for yucks. Not funny.

    Very comedic That is a sheer delight for anyone who is able to appreciate the simple joy and please that a cute family film can bestow on the mind.

    Much funnier than "A fish called Wanda". This movie is a hidden gem. This movie has a great Python esk script and is well acted. I went out ofMuch funnier than "A fish called Wanda".
