Twisted comedy with social commentary and a great anti-hero
8 April 1999 | by (Mad City, WI) – See all my reviews

Well, Erik essentially IS an anti-hero - all his filmed adventures start when he sets out to right that unfortunate mishap during the looting and raping raid. Great comedic performance from Tim Robbins, very believable Industrious Torturer Cleese, unforgettable Jones as the King of high Brazil and the lovely Imogen Stubbs - what else can you ask for?! What about a magic dish cloth, you say - well, we've got that too!
