Surprise Treat
10 May 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm a pretty big fan of the Python guys, but I have to admit I haven't managed to see everything, and have not always liked everything I've seen. But when this movie came on tv as a complete surprise, it turned into a suprrise treat for me. I can't comment on the original dialog since I had to settle for a German dubbing (the infamous "synchronization"), which may have actually ameliorated the movie, but I laughed consistently, even at slapstick moments where I wouldn't have thought that I would have laughed. All in all I enjoyed myself thoroughly, despite the fact that poor Bernie Kopell seemed doomed to play a character utterly reminiscent of his role as Siegfried in the eternally ridiculous (and sometimes hilarious) Get Smart. In the end, good must triumph, but getting there can be funny as well as fun. I thought it was well worth the trip.
