    According to a thread I read this morning at that "other forum," MGM is prepping a SE of A Fish Called Wanda for 2003. To be included is an extended version of the film(12 mins added), an audio commentary by John Cleese, and other extras. If true, it will be a very happy day for Wanda fans.

    Don't call me stupid.

    That would be a very happy day! I've been enjoying the bargain DVD out there, but I've never heard of any extended version.
    What other forum?

    I just framed my mini-poster (one I got in the mail years ago at the time of the cinematic release) last week; this must be my reward for caring!

    Who'd have thunk there was any extra footage around. I'll keep both versions.

    I think the important thing to keep in mind here is that the central tenet of Buddhism is not "every man for himself."

    The London Underground IS NOT a political movement.

    I wish I could see this movie for the first time again. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard. BUt I have seen it at least 100 times since and I can pretty much recite the dialogue. I'd be all over an SE.

    My all-time favorite comedy movie.

    So will Universal ever release a proper anamorphic OAR version of F-F-F-Fierce Creatures?

    Oh happy day! I've picked up the current DVD at Best Buy about a half-dozen times over the past year, and I've always put it back.
    And it's NOT because I don't want the movie! I think A Fish Called Wanda is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. If this report is accurate, picture me dancing.

    Hi,

    I hope they're gonna do some retrospective interviews, but I also hope they'll include "John Cleese's First Farewell Performance" which was basically a 50-minute making-of of the film, and it also took a look at Cleese's career. I don't know about the US, but it was released on video by MGM in the UK in 1989.

    Chris

    The SE was released in the UK a while back.

    Commentary by Cleese, Anamorphic widescreen, 5.1 surround, and a bunch of retrospectives, and a few easter eggs.

    So an SE did come out in 2003 though it was only for R2.

    Everyone assumed it was for R1.

    oh well
