Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The funniest movie I have seen in a long time.
Time - Richard Schickel
Think of A Fish Called Wanda as the next best thing to a Looney Tunes-Merrie Melodies summerfest…Wanda defies gravity, in both senses of the word, and redefines a great comic tradition. [July 18, 1988]
Los Angeles Times - Sheila Benson
A convulsively funny affair.[15 July 1988, Calendar, p. 6-1]
San Francisco Chronicle - Peter Stack
I laughed so hard, my eyes watered. I laughed so loud, I lost track of whether anyone else was laughing. I laughed so much, I ached afterwards. [29 July 1988, Daily Notebook, p.E1]
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Jay Scott
May be less than the sum of its parts, but its parts are more impressive than most other wholes around.
