Today in Movie History: January 24

It’s a quiet day for movie releases, but I’ll go with one that deserves some love. Fierce Creatures, the follow-up to A Fish Called Wanda, reunited the same four principal cast members for a new bit of zaniness. It lacks some of the zip of its predecessor — the absence of director Charles Crichton probably played a hand — but it’s still a thoroughly amusing bit of fluff thanks to the lingering chemistry between stars John Cleese, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin and Jamie Lee Curtis. (Palin, in particular, steals the show in this one.) It opened today in 1997.
