  • shitty wifi
  • British TV shows
  • Otto the douchebag
  • fish and chips (yes, THAT scene)
  • and much, much more!


Jewel thief Wanda Gershwitz (Jamie Lee Curtis) is every Englishman’s dream of the sexy American babe – brash, bright-eyed, and buxom. Barrister Archie Leach (John Cleese) is the quintessential Englishman – polite, poised, and nearly comatose. Under normal circumstances they might never meet… but in “A Fish Called Wanda” they’re about to come crashing together in a hilarious clash of cultures.

Kevin Kline and Michael Palin co-star in this mad-cap crime caper about a band of bumbling thieves who rip off a cache of diamonds from London’s elegant jewelry district. The perfect heist soon turns into a perfect mess when the gang’s double-dealing ringleader, George, is arrested. What’s more… he’s hidden the diamonds… and he isn’t telling where!
