    With this cast, you are guaranteed moments of inspired lunacy. It's still fun watching Cleese get caught with his pants down. But the material seems familiar and overworked. show more

    A wildly funny sex farce that smartly combines big-time silliness with sophisticated wit. show more

    The "nonsequel" that regathers the inspired loonies who scaled the heights of giddy anarchy in 1988's "A Fish Called Wanda," is a different comic species. [24 January 1997, p. 3D] show more

    Amazing comic performances...give this comedy its lovely manic pace, kept just within the realm of sanity. show more

    It's still a lot of fun, and I welcome any film that keeps me entertained for nearly the entire running length. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Things quickly degenerate into a series of juvenile jokes about flatulence and bosoms, and by the end the cast is reduced to frantically manhandling a corpse for yucks. Not funny. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    Mostly a mess: toothless when it should be nasty, not so much madcap as merely frantic. show more
