A Fish Called Wanda

John Cleese wrote and stars in this hilarious crime caper film set in England. He plays a barrister called Archibald Leach who is seduced by a scheming American seductress (Jamie Lee Curtis) for the where-abouts of the missing loot. Kevin Kline and Michael Palin are also interested. And yes, there is a fish named Wanda as well as a woman named Wanda. Not recommended for the owners of small noisy dogs.
