This is 1970s British humore--lots of farting, bad teeth and Monty Python-ish jokes. Didn't work for me.

Jabberwocky (1977) is one of Terry Gilliam's transitional movies...sort of a hybrid between his Monty Python years and his emergence as a full-fledged autonomous director. It has some really funny stuff in it, but it's still reaching for a sense of purpose. Time Bandits (1981), just a few years later, better realizes the feel of a Gilliam film. Still, I think fans of Python will get a kick out of the familiar non-sequitur humor and appearances by several Python cast members (including Michael Palin, who's great in the lead role).

Gratuitous throughout. Excellent if you've recently had a DIY lobotomy. A perfectly wonderful waste of 105 minutes. Has next to nothing to do with Lewis Carroll's poem, "Jabberwocky" other than the title and absurd illogical references to the monster. Some scenes are actually funny but not at the Python level of satiric humor. Yes, to reiterate, a perfectly wonderful waste of time. Great costumes!

Thought this was a family movie. WRONG. Pretty disgusting.
