Synopsis

Tour-de-force performances from an unparalleled comic cast highlight this much-loved hit that Roger Ebert calls "the funniest movie I have seen in a long time!" Monty Pythoners John Cleese and Michael Palin (Search For The Holy Grail, The Meaning Of Life) join Oscar® winner* Kevin Kline (In & Out) and Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies) in an entertainment so impeccably timed and executed that Time Magazine hailed it as: "Geniu[a film that] Redefines a great comic tradition!" Four conniving jewel thieves...three Yorkshire terriers...two heaving bosoms and one proper British barrister. It all adds up to "a non-stop barrage of...outrageous plot twists and over-the top performances" (L.A. Weekly) when a girl called Wanda (Curtis) tries to deceive her Nietzche-quoting boyfriend (Kline), an animal-loving hitman (Palin) and an embarrassment-prone counselor (Cleese) out of a fortune in jewels in this hilariously funny farce!

Reviews

Richard Schickel TIME Magazine | April 27, 2009

Wanda defies gravity, in both senses of the word, and redefines a great comic tradition.

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | April 27, 2009

Like many of the best English comedies, much of the humor here is based on character, good-natured high spirits, and fairly uninhibited vulgarity.

Variety Staff Variety | October 18, 2008

Though it is less tasteless, irreverent and satirical than the Python pics, film still is wacky and occasionally outrageous in its own, distinctly British way.

Desson Thomson Washington Post | January 01, 2000

It'll keep you amused enough to sit still and even remember it fondly. But it seems a light day's fishing for Messers Cleese and Palin.

Rita Kempley Washington Post | January 01, 2000

It's a deliciously dishy comedy, but like sushi an acquired taste.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | January 01, 2000

The funniest movie I have seen in a long time.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | January 01, 2000

When it comes to comedians, everyone has their favorite. Mine is John Cleese.
