Trivia

Like Vadim Jean's previous Discworld film (Hogfather (2006)), there were problems with the set flooding due to heavy rainfall while filming indoors. See more »

Goofs

When Rincewind and Twoflower are tied back-to-back, Rincewind says that "if complete and utter chaos was lightning, then you [Twoflower] would be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armor shouting 'All gods are idiots'."; you can tell by the way his mouth moves, however, that he actually says 'All gods are bastards', which is consistent with how it is worded in the novel.

Quotes

Rincewind: That's old Twoflower for you. He just appreciates beauty in his own way. I mean, if a poet sees a daffodil, he stares at it and then writes a long poem. But Twoflower would wander off and buy a book on botany, and then as he reads it he would tread on the daffodil.

It's not epic, but still good!
27 January 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Despite all the "bad" reviews posted here, I guess it all depends on your personal taste. I, for one, loved this movie! But like the tag line says: "It's a pigment of your(!) imagination"

No movie will ever be as good as it's book (or books in this case). However, they did a very good job trying to capture the essence of the books and put it all in this movie.

The movie won't please everyone as you can see from other reviews posted here, but like Sir Pratchett said: "If I've would have written these stories to be a movie, I would have written them very differently".

All in all a good movie which will certainly please most people, regardless if they are familiar with Terry Pratchett or not.
