It's Millennium Eve and Blackadder is hosting a dinner party for a few select friends, Lady Elizabeth, Viscount George, Archbishop Melchett and Archbishop Darling. Baldrick devises yet another of his infamous cunning plans to help his ever greedy master Edmund Blackadder con money from his gullible friends. The pair build a "time machine" from empty cereal packets and place bets with their friends as to when in history they will travel, retrieving various artifacts from their travels as proof, items which Blackadder already owns! However, in a strange twist of fate the time machine actually works and the pair are thrown back in history initially to the Jurassic period. Gradually the pair start to return to their own time stopping off at various famous times in history such as Sherwood Forest and the Battle of Waterloo but will they make it home? Written by

At the dinner party at the beginning, a portrait of Captain Blackadder from Blackadder Goes Forth is positioned on the wall behind the present Blackadder. See more »
When Blackadder exits the time machine in the Elizabethan era, the lights in the basement are electric wall lights and couldn't have featured in an Elizabethan building. See more »
That is for every schoolboy and schoolgirl for the next 400 years! Have you any idea how much suffering you're going to cause? Hours spent at school desks trying to find ONE joke in "A Midsummer's Night Dream", wearing stupid tights in school plays and saying things like, "What ho, my Lord," and, "Oh, look, here comes Othello talking total crap as usual."
And THAT is for Ken Branagh's endless, four-hour version of Hamlet.
Who's Ken Branagh?
I'll tell him ...

An orchestral anthem in genuine praise of Blackadder (in contrast to the first and second shows, which mocked him) plays over the closing credits. It is accompanied by lyrics to sing along to, which the head of Blackadder bounces along to (and the Queen and Baldrick, when the anthem mentions them). See more »
Even though a lot of people on this forum seem to think this is rubbish i think this is a great blackadder ( although not as good as the TV series i admit ), It is funny and tries to incorporate a family audience to blackadder, I saw the film @ the Dome when i was just 10 and i was laughing my head off. There are a phew mistakes with crew visible but it is a nice short film to end the blackadder series.
The crew all seem to have had a great time making the film and it was a good send off after the killing off the characters in series 4, it shows them all as very good friends and Rowan Atkinson @ his cunning best.
