Storyline

Young Anthony comes from a materialistic rich Republican family. One evening, his mystical flatulence-prone grandfather shows him a book about the adventures of Sinbad, a legendary medieval Middle Eastern sailor, explorer and adventurer, who's also their ancestor. Grandpa also show Anthony a magical coin that can remove the boundary between fantasy and reality. They use it to take part in the adventures Sinbad has in the book. However, this causes a Jumanji-like effect, since stuff from the book occasionally comes to life inside of their mansion. Despite being a sailor, Sinbad and his party are this time on mainland, where they meet a funny and strange old sage. At first, Sinbad can't stand him, but the immediacy of their situation brings them together. Bophisto, one of the most powerful and evil wizards of all time, is dying, so he's sent his minions to find the key to all knowledge, which could tell him how to heal himself. They are led by two generals, evil and very eccentric Murki...

Trivia

When production began, the filmmakers realized they only had real swords at their disposal, no props. When executive producer Diane Mehrez found out that fight scenes were still being prepared with these weapons in mind, she had all sword fights canceled to avoid injuries to the actors. This was ironic, as the filming location - Jordan - had been chosen because there would be enough room to accommodate large-scale battle scenes. See more »

Why do they make films like this!?
18 November 1999 | by The JudgeSee all my reviews

You've got to be kidding me, right? I mean, this was some sort of a joke or something, right? They wouldn't really make a movie THIS bad and be for real, right?

Words cannot begin to describe just how horrible this movie really is. It was obviously an attempt at an adventure/comedy, but man, even the jokes they try to show are just awful. JUST AWFUL!

Apparently Richard Grieco and Mickey Rooney needed money or something and Dean Stockwell! My level of respect for him has diminished dramatically just for the fact that he appears croaking and grunting like some evil frog in this thing.

If this ever makes it to regular TV, and I am sure it will since TV programming people have no souls anyway, trust me when I say it would be more entertaining for you to tune to a channel with static on it instead. Please, I beg of you. Whatever you do, do NOT watch this load of a film.
