    I'm ashamed of the fact that as much of a fan of British comedies as I am it took me 25 years to get around to seeing this movie. However, it is regrettably never mentioned when discussing the topic of great comedies. How can such a movie be so underrated? 6 years 10 months ago

    'Fun' fact: a guy from Denmark literally laughed himself to death while watching this movie.

    For me, A Fish Called Wanda is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. If you're a fan of comedies, check it out.
