I laughed (out loud) once. I hardly think that constitutes a 'comedy' for me.
There are a few witty one-liners, and a touch of situational humor, but most of the humor is pretty stale and dry. I think they were trying for something along the lines of The Princess Bride, but missed the mark entirely.
There were a few sword-fights, but that hardly supports an entire 'adventure', and the plot was utterly formulaic and you could see 10 minutes ahead of the film at any given point.
As for the romance, well, the ONE romantic idea present in the film just wasn't enough to qualify it for a romance film either.
My hat is off to anyone who can find an ounce of drama in this movie either...
So, what is it? Something to pass the time if you literally have nothing else to do. As I mentioned before, I'd recommend watching the Princess Bride if you haven't, or watching it again, rather than watch this.
I gave it three stars because the acting wasn't terrible, there were those witty one-liners, and I did manage to laugh once.
