A Fish Called Wanda
release year:1988 genre:comedy/drama viewing setting:home VHS, 8/29/98 what I expected:a lot, given the rave reviews this one's gotten what I got:a good drama with some really funny parts, here and there
synopsis:Four people steal some diamonds, then double-cross each other as each tries to get the diamonds for him/herself.
impressions:As I said, it had a few really funny parts (almost entirely because of Kevin Kline) but overall, it was no epic comedy. Maybe fans of British humor would have a better time, hard to say. It was kind of a whodunit, in that you never knew who would backstab who next.
acting:Kevin Kline did the only outstanding job here, and he was hilarious.
final word:Decent comedy.
