  1. Awesome! Bravura! Captivating! Dazzling!
  2. Gilliam's first solo flight as a director is more notable for its inspired visual ideas than for the frequency of its laughs, but Python devotees will have fun.
  3. Gilliam's first fully equipped playpen and if he musses it up -- I mean, really musses it up --well, prodigies will be prodigies.

    The film itself is thinly conceived, except in the area of bodily misfunction. It plays like the murky B side to the immortal Gilliam-Jones epic "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
  5. 50
    Long on jabber but short on yocks.
  6. Jabberwocky is not a Python film, a fact most obvious in its marked lack of humor.

    First of all... this is NOT a Monty Python film. It has all of the Python strangeness but absolutely none of its humor. Secondly... this isFirst of all... this is NOT a Monty Python film. It has all of the Python strangeness but absolutely none of its humor. Secondly... this is NOT an adaptation of the quirky Lewis Carrol poem. Besides a couple of weak references to the poem and an attempt to reproduce its weirdness, this is an original story. It's a somewhat confusing, mildly interesting, kinda so-so movie that I can recommend or encourage you to steer clear of equally. Expand
