A Fish Called Wanda

A Fish Called Wanda

(1988)

A tale of murder, lust, greed, revenge, and seafood.

Classic comedy following four variously dysfunctional people who team up to commit armed robbery - Barrister Archie (John Cleese) falls in love and tosses off more than his wig for sexy thief Wanda (Jamie Lee Curtis). But Wanda is using her charms on fellow partner-in-crime Otto (Kevin Kline, in an Oscar-winning performance), a dim-witted, intellectual psychopath.... More

Meanwhile, Otto is making eyes at henchman Ken (Michael Palin), an animal loving multiple dog-killer, who is infatuated with a fish (called Wanda). As the plan plays out, they try to double-cross each other for the loot.

The film has a very macabre honour: in 1989, Danish man Ole Bentzen actually died laughing while watching it. A cardiac arrest struck him down, as his heart rate reached an estimated 250-500 beats per minute. Watch with caution.Hide
