Review

  • I was flicking through the stations looking for my favourite type of film - low budget comedies and b movies. Lucky me to find Jabberwocky!

    I missed the beginning but soon realised I had strayed upon a gem of a film. Michael Palin in a ridiculous outfit in a filthy wretched medieval city! The scenery is perfect and on one level is quite realistic. Starving people, outside 'toilets' and general squalor - but this is a comedy and the characters are hilarious!!!

    I noticed Warren Mitchel (Alf Garnet) and Bernard Bresslaw (from the Carry On's) in there too making for a very funny film

    There are many memorable scenes and the humour is in a monty python style with plenty of slapstick and toilet humour

    The low budget wasn't really noticable, and I thought overall had a more produced feel than the holy grail which really was low budget film!

    I would definately recommend this film to anyone who likes crazy off beat comedies

    Its not exactly a kids film because its gory in places and the princess at one point seems to lose her clothes, but older kids will probably love it... a bit like how the Goonies was almost too scary to be a kids film

    I give it 5 turnips out of 5
