In addition, an ordinary comedy usually features well-kn... read more

This is my favorite british comedy, even more so than the Monty Python classics. But I'm saddened that it's getting dissed here at listal. 6.8 average? come on, are people simply voting based on the silly title, or have they actually sat down and enjoyed this comedy-robbery-blackmail-double-crossing laugh-til-it-hurts fest?

There is no doubt- John Cleese is a funny guy, although he has his occasional misfires (most recently his animated works "Shrek Forever After" and "Planet 51.") Here he is not "Fawlty Towers" funny, but still manages to amuse and entertain, and he is backed up by a great cast, including Michael Palin, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Kevin Kline as a psychotic pseudo-intellectual dolt with a preference for m... read more

"Hulvaton farssi, jossa timanttiryöstön tehnyt kopla kusettaa toisiaan minkä ehtii päästääkseen saaliiseen käsiksi. Oikeastaan kasa täysin randomeja kohelluskohtauksia, joista varsinkin Michael Palinin yritykset päästää todistajana toimiva mummo hengiltä aiheutti melkoista huutonaurua. "
