OMG - This has to rank as one of the top ten worst movies I have ever seen
First of all, the movie contains Brian Blessed of "I, Claudius" and "Blackadder" fame. The description of the movie also held great promise. However, as the movie unfolds, the promise is never kept. The storyline is boring, contrived, and one of the stupidest I have ever witnessed. Not only were many of the devices used in the plot silly, they made no sense whatsoever. As if that weren't bad enough, the acting was horrible. My wife and I were hysterical during parts of it, and it is not a comedy. At the end of it, we put on Mel Brook's "The Inquisition" bit from History of the World. At least that was a comedy. What the connection between this thing and the 1943 version is absolutely beyond me. You have been forewarned.
