This movie is pretty much the stuff of legend.

Description: Monty Python's Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) directs this wild, wild version of the stories of Baron Munchausen, pushing the limits of 1989 special effects technology to bring us such sights as a horse divided in half and running around in two parts, and a giant Robin Williams with his head flying off his shoulders. Basically, this is a treat for Gilliam fans, as the sustaining idea of the film runs out of steam, and manic energy alone keeps the momentum going. Casual viewers might find it tedious after awhile. There are nice parts for fellow Python Eric Idle, as well as Sting, Alison Steadman, and Uma Thurman a ... (more)

"Re-watch - Dec. 2nd My daughter wanted to watch another movie after The Grinch, so I insisted we watch something non-Christmas-y and she chose this after I told her it's from the same people as Time Bandits. She wound up loving it, especially Eric Idle's character who made her laugh almost every time he spoke. I still dig the hell out of it as well."
