A Fish Called Wanda

This is one of the best comedies I have ever seen. The plot revolves around a London gang of thieves, who's leader has been captured. He recently stole some jewels and hid them. He's the only one who knows where they are. There are three other members in the gang. Jamie Lee Curtis, the only female member of the gang, seems to be the true brains of the operation. Kevin Kline (In a hysterical performance) as the british-hating American of the group, who says and does some pretty bizarre stuff. The third ("Monty Python's" Michael Palin) is a stuttering coward, who spends most of the movie trying to kill the only witness to the robbery, but keeps killing her dogs instead.

John Cleese falls into the plot as the lawyer who defends the gang's leader, and later falls in love with Curtis. This black comedy is better than the movie just reviewed. Plenty of moments to keep you rolling on the floor. The stand-outs are Kline, who seems to be the stupidest person in the world, and Palin who just can't seem to finish a sentence without having a seizure. A definite must-see.
