I don’t write about the .99 cent rental in iTunes every week…primarily because most of the “featured” films thus far have not been worth writing about. This week, however, is different.
“A Fish Called Wanda” is written by John Cleese. That should be enough right there – the man knows funny better than almost anyone that has ever lived. When you throw in the genius of Kevin Kline, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Palin…well, it’s .99 cents well spent.
If you’ve never seen this R rated slapstick send up to 1930s comedies (with a decidedly modern twist…for the late 80s anyway) it’s well worth your time…although I do have to warn you that the trailer doesn’t do it justice.
