I really enjoyed this funny film.
23 September 1999 | by (Paterson NJ) – See all my reviews

Standing on Fishes is a great film which nicely reflects how real life relationships and a fabulously gorgeous piece of art (so to speak!) can be funny as well as heart wrenching. The writing is witty and fresh and the acting is just as good. Kelsey Grammar provides the perfect comic relief from the early on tension in the film. It was also nice to Jason Priestly pull of a stellar job his difficult role. It is all around a great film which shows how we all look on the same thing in totally different and abstract ways.
