"Mr. Sylvester Stallone didn't get where he is today by playing in Jane Austen."

Fierce Creatures is a charming, rather funny non-sequel to A Fish Called Wanda that reunites most of the original cast, but falls far short of matching up to its non-predecessor. In all fairness, A Fish Called Wanda was way too remarkably excellent and unbeatable that I never expected Fierce Creatures t... read more

Back then, in the 80's, the same cast (John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin) worked together and made one of the most ridiculous and hilarious comedy ever, 'A fish called Wanda'. It was a deserved success and, 10 years later, they were back together and you would hope that it would be again a smash it. Unfortunately, even though it wasn't bad at all, this second flick was unf... read more

Fierce Creatures is a really funny film featuring the same cast as A Fish Called Wanda. This film isn't a sequel of that because of the completely different story and characters within it. It was a funny film but wasn’t as clever as A Fish Called Wanda. It still has that typical clumsy slapstick comedy involved in the film. It was the original comedy style that made me laugh so much. But the thi... read more

Description: A massive corporate conglomerate, Octopus Inc., run by a shrewd and cruel tycoon named Rod McCain, purchases a UK-based leisure company, and also the failing London Marwood Zoo. To bring more business to the zoo, Octopus hires a new manager, Rollo Lee, who promptly comes up with a way to increase profits-do away with all the animals except for the ferocious ones. This new Fierce Creatures Policy shocks the Marwood zookeepers, led by the unendingly talkative Adrian "Bugsy" Malone. Eventually, Rod McCain's son Vince, along with the up-and-coming business executive Willa Weston, take control of the zoo and revoke the Fier ... (more)

"22.7 Ei komediana kovinkaan hauska, mutta hahmojen kemiat pelaavat sen verran hyvin yksiin ja eläimet ovat sen verta söpöjä, jotta oikein mukava tätä katselessa oli pyhäpäivän iltapäivä viettää. Näyttelijöissäkään ei juuri valittamista ole."

"Alun aikana kiroaa itsensä maanrakoon ja manaa päivää, jolloin tämäkin leffa tuli roskakorista dyykattua. Filmin ilmapiiriä ruvetaan kuitenkin vääntämään hitaasti mutta varmasti kiinnostavasta kekseliään kautta viimein pariin kertaan mustan ja kaksimielisen huumorinkukinnan myötä todella hauskaksikin. Myös ajatus eläinten "inhimillisyydestä" ja näiden käsittely ansaitsemallaan tavalla ilahduttaa, ja kun kerran elokuvissa ollaan, eivät oikeassa maailmassa lain yläpuolelle s"

It was a deserved success and, 10 years later, they were back together and you would hope that it would be again a smash it. Unfortunately, even though it wasn't bad at all, this second flick was unfortunately nothing really mind-blowing. I mean, there were a few laughs here and there, it was expected with those guys but, unfortunately, it never reached its potential. I think the issue is that the story was not really interesting enough and it was the same thing concerning the characters. I mean, you can add as many jokes as you want but if the viewers don't care about the story and/or the ch” read more

"First viewing Had to catch this one before it left instant. Take the principal cast members from A Fish Called Wanda, give them similar characters and a completely different plot, and you have Fierce Creatures. It's nowhere near as good or funny as Wanda, but if you liked seeing Cleese, Palin, Curtis & Kline on the screen before you'll find this an entertaining film too. Some of the humor falls flat (mostly for both of Kline's characters), but the bits that do work work very well. I especially "

It was a funny film but wasn’t as clever as A Fish Called Wanda. It still has that typical clumsy slapstick comedy involved in the film. It was the original comedy style that made me laugh so much. But the things that were a little disappointing was I dont think the characters were as clever as A Fish Called Wanda. The story seems a bit like a family type. I honestly think that not many people like it is because of the weaker story and not as funny story and tries to rip-off a great film like A Fish Called Wanda.

John Cleese was hilarious again. He looks a lot older now than he does in A Fish” read more

In all fairness, A Fish Called Wanda was way too remarkably excellent and unbeatable that I never expected Fierce Creatures to match it.

Fierce Creatures is of course completely unrelated (except a few sneaky references that one should spot, as well as a few Monty Python homages) while also keeping some of the characters much the same (Kline delivers a trademark macho performance here).
