Bad puns aside, it's tragic to see such an imaginative stylist as Terry Gilliam return to filmmaking with such a hodge-podge mess of a film. The trials of the film's creation are if not legendary then definitely notorious, but beyond any tribulations of filmmaking, I have to wonder what inspired Gilliam to tackle a script with enough plot holes to make Cutthroat Island seem inspired. The story did offer him a chance to play with one of his favorite themes - logic and reality vs. faith, magic and myth. Why the maker of such magnificent testimonials to the deadening power of reason as Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, thought this flimflam of a story can compete is beyond me.
