List: Top 3 Fish-Out-Of-Water Movies

List: Top 3 Fish-Out-Of-Water Movies

This week on Episode 390 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by our review of An American Pickle, we discussed our Top 3 fish-out-of-water movies. These stories are a tale as old as time. There are countless movies that fall under this umbrella, and that makes narrowing our lists down a challenge, but given the quality of the category, it’s hard to go wrong no matter the direction you go. It certainly made for a very fun conversation. That said, here are our lists:

(Note: Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections)


1) Pleasantville
2) Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
3) Trading Places


1) Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
2) North by Northwest
3) Groundhog Day
