"Nicht ein Sequel, sondern ein Equal zu drehen, war das erklärte Anliegen der Macher der 1988 gedrehten Hitkomödie "Ein Fisch namens Wanda". Mit JOHN CLEESE, KEVIN, KLINE, JAMIE LEE CURTIS und MICHAEL PALIN befinden sich wieder die Hauptfiguren des Original-Ensembles an Bord der turbulent dahinschaukelnden Kalauerkaschunke, dessen Drehbuch erneut von Gag-Großmeister Cleese ausgeheckt wurde." (BLICKPUNKT: FILM) " ... ein rasanter Spaß" (CINEMA) "Turbulente Satire auf die Freizeitindustrie und ihre Auswirkungen." (FILM DIENST) Der geldgierige Finanzmogul Rod McCain (KEVIN KLINE) hat sein Imperium Octopus Inc. um einen frisch erworbenen Londoner Zoo erweitert, den er in eine Freizeitattraktion mit 20 % Rendite umwandeln will. Damit sein Vorhaben von Erfolg gekrönt ist, stellt er den ehemaligen Fernsehmann Rollo Lee (JOHN CLEESE) ein, der sofort radikale Umstrukturierungen anordnet. Harmlose Tiere, so das Kalkül des Managers, würden die Besucher zu Tode langweilen, weshalb der Zoo sofort mit wilden Kreaturen aufzumöbeln sei. Lee gibt den Befehl, alle Knuddel- und Kuscheltiere zu erschießen, was die Tierpfleger, darunter den Verantwortlichen für die Insekten, Bugsy Malone (MICHAEL PALIN), bis ins Mark schockiert. Sie versuchen den mordgierigen Boß von der Wildheit ihrer Tierchen zu überzeugen und verkaufen da schon mal eine Meerkatze als Piranha der Wüste. Während die Tierpfleger Amok laufen, droht neue Gefahr.
