Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing the MGM comedy A Fish Called Wanda this August as a brand new 2-Disc Collector’s Edition.
Tour-de-force performances from an unparalleled comic cast highlight this much-loved hit. Monty Pythoners John Cleese and Michael Palin join Oscar winner Kevin Kline and Jamie Lee Curtis in an entertainment so impeccably timed and executed that it borders an pure genius.
Four conniving jewel thieves…three yorkshire terriers…two heaving bosoms and one proper British barrister. When a girl called Wanda (Curtis) tries to deceive her Nietzsche-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, be prepared for an endless array of side-splitting jokes and hair raising plot twists.
This new Collector’s Edition will offer up a hours of great bonus materials to accompany the film, such as a selection of Alternate Scenes and Deleted Scenes with introductions by John Cleese. A Commentray Track by John Cleese is also included on the release, as well as the Documentary “Something Fishy.” A number of smaller Featurettes can also be found on the DVD set, such as “Farewell Featurette: John Cleese,” “John Cleese’s First Farewell Performance” and “Kulture Vulture.” In addition John Cleese’ First Farewell Performance will be found on the release also, as well as an Interview With John Cleese. The disc set is rounded out by the movie’s Theatrical Trailer.
“A Fish Called Wanda” will be in stores on August 1 with a suggested retail price of $24.98.
