Fierce Creatures

That winning quartet of the notable comedy, A Fish Called Wanda, returns to the screen for another go at it. This time, John Cleese is the manager of a zoo that has recently been bought by a powerful conglomerate who demands that it increases its profits by 20 percent or it closes down to make way for a new golf course. Of course, the managers and zoo keepers certainly don't want that to happen so they plan irrationally to get rid of all the peaceful and pleasant animals and replace them with dangerous, fierce creatures until Kevin Kline and Jamie Lee Curtis come along with their own plan. The film has some good funny moments and if you liked A Fish Called Wanda, then this is just the ticket. If not, Fierce Creatures isn't anything special. The cast is completely wonderful in their roles, exactly as its predecessor.
