Benjamin Reid's rating of the film A Fish Called Wanda

The meticulous plotting of this farce is so much fun. Every character is amazing. Though probably the most dastardly, Kevin Kline's Otto is a personal favourite because of his proto-hipster pseudo intellectualism. The steamroller scene might be among the best cinematic comedy scenes ever. Like a lot of comedies, some parts have not aged that well, but a lot of these fumbles are easy to acknowledge and then look past.
