Lots of off-the-wall fun.
on December 8, 2000
The outrageous plot of "Fierce Creatures" features flirty fun and cuddy pets. The premise of this farce: a hilarious "we'll only feature fierce creatures" policy at the zoo. The characters are well cast in the same way as "A Fish Called Wanda." This film is just a romp and was not meant to be taken seriously. I really liked it.
As for "Cold Comfort Farm," this is the one-part version of this funny story of an odd family, and it's got a much better flow and is less confusing than the three-part BBC version from 1968. But that one is fun to watch, too. This one is a good, solid production that features Stephen Fry and Joanna Lumley in marvelous performances. The plot in this one is clearer and there's no filler, as there is in the other version.
I don't know why these two videos got packaged for sale together -- they're NOTHING alike. But maybe it's just because both are farces with wacky characters. I thoroughly enjoyed them both. It's a good bargain.
