Goofs

[possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers, who reportedly wanted to make the locale and costumes more colorful] The actual La Mancha is a more arid, monotonous region than the countryside shown in the film. Although it was shot in Spain, Andalusia stood in for La Mancha. See more »

Great Acting in Great Story, but some major flaws
25 April 2000 | by (Clemson, SC) – See all my reviews

Who would have thought John Lithgow would make such a great Don Quixote? He and the rest of the cast of this TV version are simply amazing. One of the best all-around jobs of acting by a cast I've seen in any movie. Plus, its the #2 selling story of all time after the Bible- can only get 1 better than that. All that said, there are some flaws in this TV version that are rather annoying. The most annoying of which is the "Ride off to the Sun" scene. I thought the way it was produced was completely wrong. And while the movie in general had good effects, that part's effects stunk. Also, the movie moves very slow at times. I gave it a 6/10, but without that one major mistake it would probably be about an 8.
