DVD of the Day #364 - Fierce Creatures

Back on Day #97, I reviewed A Fish Called Wanda. As I close out this New Year’s Resolution, I thought it would be fun to go back and look at the little known “sequel” to the movie. Same cast, director and writers, but a totally different story with new characters. I actually strongly prefer this to AFCW, but I’m sure I’m in the minority there.

Kevin Kline is at his assholish best playing two characters in this film: A father who is basically Rupert Murdoch and a son who is totally psychotic. The father owns a company called “Octopus Inc.” which somehow picked up a British Zoo in their last commerical take over. Although John Cleese’s character is originally sent to run the zoo (and ends up causing a headline in the Times of “Vampire Gunman Runs Amok” due to his actions), Kline’s younger character and Jaime Lee Curtis’ character come to run the zoo. JLC’s character loves animals and Klines utterly hates them, leading to wacky antics. It also doesn’t help that both of them think Cleese is a crazy orgy kind of guy.

The movie revolves around ways to help the zoo make money, most of which are utterly insane and quite hilarious. Eventually though, Rod McCain (the Ruper Murdoch character) discovers his son Vince has been stealing and plans to shut down the zoo and send his offspring to jail. The climax is pretty out of left field and it makes it all the more hilarious because of it. It’s a shame this film bombed when it was originally released because it’s a lot of fun and well worth seeing.

Is it Worth Keeping? Yes
