The only thing that keeps A Fish Called Wanda from being really great is that scene with the stutterer that just keeps going on and on. That took me out of the movie because I was saying 'Shut the frick up already.'

Pretty much every scene with Ken makes me laugh so hard I think I'm gonna die. K-k-k-k-k-Ken is trying to k-k-k-k-kill me.

I think it's one of the funniest movies ever, but if you love A Fish Called Wanda, try In the Loop, as someone else suggested. It's in the same vein.

Same here. Probably the first movie I watched by myself and was cracking up out loud.

Don't call me stupid.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Worth a mention except it's older 1988.

My second favorite comedy of the 80's right behind Wanda.

Do you want me to get the genital cuffs?

Yes, there have been comedies done just as well. But not many.

Watched this again last night. One of my favorite movies. I wonder how many on here have gave this movie a shot.

office space is funny but the movie has a resonance to it b.c of how much it accurately portrays our work lives. The actual lines it in aren't that funny, they are funny b.c you realize your boss is talking to you about doing pointless shite.

Its great, don't get me wrong but its funny b.c its true more so than just being funny like a fish called wanda

O brother where art thou would certainly deserve a mention as would big lebowski.

No, Office Space is funny because its funny. Bad oversight on the part of this thread to the poster that brought it up.
