In order to fully appreciate this film it helps if you're familiar with Monty Pythoon's Flying Circus. This is one of the first independent (non-Python) movies made by Terry Gilliam (Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas,The Fisher King,12 Monkeys) and is more of a light fantasty type film. The basic premise deals with a group of dwarves who work for God and have stolen the map to creation. The dwarves enlist the help of a young boy and embark on a series of adventures through time. The dwarves are thieves who are looting as they go. It's impossible to take anything onscreen seriously (if you do you're missing the overall point). This is a harmless romp that delivers.

Ok, here is a movie that looks like they filmed a bunch of people who were milling around trying to be interesting. It's so stupid that it's hard to write anything interesting. The best part is the title.
