A Fish Called Wanda ★★★★★

“I love robbing the English – they’re so polite!”

One of the finest comedies ever made. Cleese and Palin deliver Python trumping performances, and Kevin Kline is simply fucking outstanding. I cant put it any more eloquently. One of the few Oscars given for a comedy performance? That I can recall anyway.

The only minor disappointment is that Cleese and Palin only get to share one scene together, near the end. But hey!

Great script. Great Performances, and some great editing from the veteran Crichton. He bowed out on a high.
