Tame zoo animals are traded in for a madcap menagerie in a scheme to boost sales in this comedy featuring the cast of 'A Fish Called Wanda.' Kevin Kline is a greedy corporate boss who is intent on beefing up profits at his London zoo. His new manager (John Cleese) plans to purge the placid pets to market more wild animals to the masses, but meets resistance from the zoo staff.
Jamie Lee Curtis, John Cleese, Michael Palin and Academy Award winner Kevin Kline follow their smash hit A Fish Called Wanda with another hilarious farce which Jeffrey Lyons of WNBC-TV, New York, calls "a very funny picture." A quaint English zoo is the setting for a riotous revolt after the zoo director attempts to rid the park of its cute, cuddly animals and display only "fierce creatures."
A massive corporate conglomerate, Octopus Inc., run by a shrewd and cruel tycoon named Rod McCain, purchases a UK-based leisure company, and also the failing London Marwood Zoo. To bring more business to the zoo, Octopus hires a new manager, Rollo Lee, who promptly comes up with a way to increase profits-do away with all the animals except for the ferocious ones. This new Fierce Creatures Policy shocks the Marwood zookeepers, led by the unendingly talkative Adrian "Bugsy" Malone. Eventually, Rod McCain's son Vince, along with the up-and-coming business executive Willa Weston, take control of the zoo and revoke the Fierce Creatures Policy. Vince instead comes up with many under-handed and vicious schemes to attract customers-unauthorized celebrity endorsements, shoddy, overpriced zoo merchandise, and using robotic animals instead of real ones. However, Vince is also stealing from the zoo's funds, and when his father finds out, he rears to turn the zoo into a Japanese-owned golf course. Meanwhile, Willa has grown to love the zoo and its animals, and, along with her newly-reformed love interest Rollo, plot with the zookeepers to save the zoo from the McCains.
