In some countries, the film was promoted and released as "Monty Python's Jabberwocky," against the wishes of Terry Gilliam. After threats of legal action, the Python reference was removed from all subsequent reissues. See more »

It is the middle of the dark ages, ages darker than anyone had ever expected.

This early Terry Gilliam film is better than its reputation.
This often neglected first solo directing effort of Gilliam's is certainly much better than its maligned reputation would have you believe. While it is though sledding the first time through, it gains appreciably with repeated viewings, but does demand you pay attention. Amongst all the excrement, garbage and filth, Gilliam and his co-writer actually have a little something to say about big business, but mainly JABBERWOCKY is very, very funny. Strong stomachs are required, however.
