After a diamond heist, everyone is scrambling for the loot.
Okay, all I need to do is list some of the cast: John Cleese, Michael Palin, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline. You’re running out the door to find it, aren’t you? well, you should be.
This is seriously on the Otters’ list of Funniest Movies Ever. John Cleese as the hapless attorney who hates his life and his family. Jamie Lee Curtis as the gorgeous moll playing one man off against another. Michael Palin as the stuttering crook who is determined to get it right. And Kevin Kline as the stupidest psychopathic killer on record. Oh my god they’re funny.
And the script is a gem: funny, charming, bound to offend pretty much everyone, romantic, and wonderful.
And did I mention that it’s really, really funny?
Truly, this is one of the best movies ever, and the sort-of-sequel, Fierce Creatures, isn’t far behind. Buy it, watch it, love it. Trust Otter.
