5.0 out of 5 stars The old gang in a fishy tale about "Fierce Creatures", 15 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fierce Creatures [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
"Fierce Creatures", the 1997 film of the John Cleese story, brings Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin and others back together again under the direction of Schepisi and Young and it is family entertainment for twelve years and over; the DVD at an equally silly price, makes it hours of entertainment at home.

As the DVD cover picture shows with its direct allusions to "A Fish Called Wanda", it brings together again the group which had made the first film so successul with a wide range of other equally talented actors.

The story is simple - a zoo is bought by a rich American, is re-vamped to pay its way in a difficult economic climate with a focus on the "fiercest" but unlikely creatures. Following so far? The confusions come thick and fast as the zoo staff rebels, the creatures don't respond and the Big Boss wants to see his new zoo.

It does not have the freshness of "A Fish" and some of the jokes are a little forced but it is fun nevertheless and the great list of actors works well to bring it alive. Not a classic, but enjoyable and, at this price, who would complain?
