Now, I want you to be absolutely, totally, genuinely honest with me. Did you really, truly, honesty like it?
They didn't like it! Oh my God! I want to die!

This film is not based on the children's book "The Saga Of Erik The Viking" by Terry Jones (Although he hopes it will help the sales) See more »
Right, so judging by the 5.7 score this film has, I realise I'm in a minority here... Well I'm sorry, but this is such a wonderful film! The story is great, the cast is fantastic, effects are good, soundtrack is lovely, and excluding the first fifteen minutes, which are crucial for the storyline, it is hilarious throughout! Unlike other Python films, this one is real, with no silly cartoon bits in the middle and a much more intelligent humour. Much better than The Holy Grail, that had a rubbish end to it.
Well done Terry, it's a great shame that not more viewers have come across Eric The Viking, or didn't like it as much (I have a feeling that many of them were expecting a typical Python film).
