From director Terry Gilliam comes this muddled fantasy, based on the classic children's stories. The fabulous Baron (John Neville) is sent into a series of truly odd adventures that take him from the earth to the moon, and back again. Along the way, he comes across his old friends, who have extraordinary powers.

Not as fantastic as one hopes. In fact, it's just downright dull at times, and has too many lapses into long boring scenes. The acting is fine, especially Neville's flamboyant lead performance, but the script is scattershot and the action is overblown. It does have great special effects however, and perhaps that's the sole saving grace of this mess.
