They find themselves involved in palace intrigues as history happens around them. Based, very loosely, on Dickens's _A Tale of Two Cities_, Dumas's _The Corsican Brothers_, etc. Written by

In a time when so many films are just plain "forgettable," it's good to be able to look back and fondly recall a film that was both funny and memorable.
This movie has it's own unique flavor of comedy while still being reminiscent of great films like "Catch 22," and "Help!" (Maybe it's the appearance of Orson Wells and Victor Spinetti that does this for me...)
There's much more than just slapstick to be had here. Definitely worth the look.
