    Terry Gilliam kicks ass at whatever he does. I say this in full confidence without having seen the movie yet.

    I just saw it yesterday, I saw it was pretty good! It kinda reminded me of Sleepy Hollow (but much worse). I love fantasy... the forest was great. Pretty good direction too. Some funny jokes. Well the French were evil but it's okay, I have a sense of humor.

    Anyways I always was a fan of the Brothers Grimm tales, the original ones, much darker than the kids versions. They were brilliant!

    I saw it on Saturday. I was really disappointed. There were too many unnecessary sub-plots (especially the French occupation one), and it made the whole thing busy and muddled. The film occasionally forgot it was an adventure comedy and became maudlin. And it really wasn't very funny.

    I usually love Terry Gilliam movies, but I didn't like this one at all.

    I'm afraid I'm with you, Mrsshf. Probably Gilliam's weakest effort since Jabberwocky.

    Not as good as I expected it to be. mrsshf is sure right about the 'too many subplots'. I notice a general weakness in almost all famous directors as they get old. Their work gets tired and mediocre. They rely on their name to accumulate high budgets. Then they cover their less than average work with effects and explosions. Where once they gave us drama and comedy, now they've become a travelling show making a last buck before they pop it (the only exceptions being messrs. Eastwood and Redford). This film had the potential of exploring many aspects of the tales we all learned as kids. Instead, it was like the colgne used by the aristocracy to diguise their pong.

    I regret not seeing this in theaters. The camerawork definitely has Gilliam's touch, and the storyline is interesting enough. Great movie.
