A FISH CALLED WANDA
December 1, 2017  | By David Bianculli

MGM HD, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

John Cleese is hilarious in this 1988 comedy, playing a button-down British barrister named Archie Leach (Cary Grant’s real name, by the way). In this film, Cleese falls under the spell of a con woman played by Jamie Lee Curtis. She’s a riot, too – but as good as Cleese and Curtis are, they’re eclipsed by this film’s co-stars: Michael Palin as a stuttering villain, and Kevin Kline, who won an Oscar for his role here, as a short-tempered accomplice.
