Jamie Lee Curtis, John Cleese, Michael Palin and Academy Award® winner Kevin Kline follow their smash hit A Fish Called Wanda with another hilarious farce which Jeffrey Lyons of WNBC-TV, New York, calls "a very funny picture." A quaint English zoo is the setting for a riotous revolt after the zoo director attempts to rid the park of its cute, cuddly animals and display only "fierce creatures."
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Fierce Creatures reunites A Fish Called Wanda's talented ensemble for a comedy that, while not without its moments, suffers from diminishing returns.
Luke Y. Thompson
A sporadically funny but very confused follow-up to A Fish Called Wanda.

Common Sense Says
Some funny moments peppered with lots of sexual innuendo.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this farce with a likeable cast -- all the same folks behind the popular heist comedy A Fish Called Wanda -- really digs into the sexual innuendo with a long-running joke about the main character's supposed wild sex life. Characters get undressed down to underwear and another gets sexually harassed by the boss' son. Violence is pretty mild, but includes gunshots and one unlikeable character dead. The zoo is plastered with sponsorship banners in a few scenes as a nice send-up of corporate greed run amok. Lots of language, including one "f--k."
