Overview
Tour-de-force performances from an unparalleled comic cast highlight this much-loved hit that Roger Ebert calls "the funniest movie I have seen in a long time!" Monty Pythoners John Cleese and Michael Palin ('Search For The Holy Grail', 'The Meaning Of Life') join Oscar winner Kevin Kline ('In & Out') and Jamie Lee Curtis ('True Lies') in an entertainment so impeccably timed and executed that 'Time' Magazine hailed it as: "Genius - [a film that] redefines a great comic tradition!"

Four conniving jewel thieves... three Yorkshire terriers... two heaving bosoms and one proper British barrister. It all adds up to "a non-stop barrage of... outrageous plot twists and over-the top performances," ('L.A. Weekly'), when a girl called Wanda (Curtis) tries to deceive her Nietzche-quoting boyfriend (Kline), an animal-loving hitman (Palin) and an embarrassment-prone counselor (Cleese) out of a fortune in jewels in this hilariously funny farce!
