The film is notable for presenting a more human Jesus, compared to more solemn portrayals in earlier films; here Jesus laughs and cries like anyone else. Among other things, he weeps at Joseph’s funeral, throws stones in Lake Galilee when meeting Simon Peter and James son of Zebedee for the first time, dances at the wedding at Cana, and starts a water-splashing fight with his disciples as well. Satan is portrayed as a man in modern dress (and as a woman in red). During his temptation of Jesus, he shows him the Earth from the vantage point of space. Satan also shows Jesus images of wars and destruction carried out in his name. The film adds an apocryphal Roman historian named “Livio” who watches and comments as events unfold; he is presumably named after Livy.

She has constant flashbacks of her painful childhood where her mother abused her. She meets a boy that trys to understand her and work with her psychiatrist to help her understand her disorder. I would recommend this movie to anyone, you wont be sorry you watched it!

Perhaps if I watched this again knowing what it would be I might like it better. But as of now, this is by far my least favorite. I feel like it's too scattered. I wanted to follow Dennis Cooper more. He's such an unfortunate fellow. He just wants the simple life and to be with the fat woman he loves, but he doesn't realize the world doesn't work the way it does in his head. Instead of following him we cut back and forth between his story and the town itself trying to deal with the deaths caused by the Jabberwocky. The old king tries to figure out how to cope with it. Dennis just happens to find himself in the middle of this story. Nothing really grabbed me, though. At the same time, there's nothing really bad in it either. The jokes work for the most part. Just the disconnect made it difficult for me to watch. I feel like Gilliam really began to find his heart and soul within Time Bandits.

I saw this when I was a teenager and I introduced my daughter to it when she became a teenager. She flinches when I just mention the movie title. The impeccable eery finish is perfect.
