The Emperor's New Clothes
Napoleon, exiled, devises a plan to retake the throne. He'll swap places with commoner Eugene Lenormand, sneak into Paris, then Lenormand will reveal himself and Napoleon will regain his throne. Things don't go at all well; first, the journey proves more difficult than expected, but more disastrously, Lenormand enjoys himself too much to reveal the deception. Napoleon adjusts somewhat uneasily to the life of a commoner while waiting, while Lenormand gorges on rich food.

(de) wrote: General bait and switch crime film. Sadly the accents made it hard to understand.
(mx) wrote: This is by no means a good film but it is without a doubt the best thing to come out of WWE Studios (or WWE Films, whatever they call it). Some scenes in this film look terribly cheap & the plot is simple, familiar and predictable. Yet there are some funny moments. Adam Copeland aka Edge shows signs of acting potential and now that his WWE Career is over he'll more than likely end up in film. Jamie Kennedy plays the role of annoying sidekick fine and the chemistry between the two keeps the film afloat.

(fr) wrote: Cheesy, trashy, unnecessary, pointless. So many words describe this film.... A typical cliche chick flick with horrible acting, terrible singing, and essentially it allows young girls to believe that this slutty behaviour is acceptable. Just a bad movie which doesn't deliver anything.
(gb) wrote: Terry Gilliam, el miembro norteamericano del grupo comico Monty Python, quien co-dirigio con Terry Jones el clasico de la comedia "Monty Python And The Holy Grail", asume su primera pelicula como unico director con esta farsa basada en un poema de Lewis Carroll, protagonizada por MIchael Palin y ambientada en una Edad Media llena de brutalidad, suciedad y fanatismo. Pareceria que Gilliam hubiera reciclado los escenarios y algunos chistes de "The Holy Grail". Y al contrario de la mencionada cinta, en "Jabberwocky" algunos chistes funcionan y otros no. Pero este es un trabajo demencial que debe ser apreciado y que nos muestra a un director con una poetica propia que lo hace altamente interesante.
(es) wrote: Wow, this is just terrible. Besides not feeling like a Bond movie until about halfway through, the opening was just awful with Bond smiling even though he's supposed to be seeking revenge and grieving for the death of his wife. Then we got Charles Gray who's not the least bit menacing as Blofeld, another redneck stereotype played by Jimmy Dean and Lana Wood in a glorified cameo that is just insulting to anyone. I mean, she got like 8 minutes of screentime, she's a gold-digging whore for the better part of that time and then instead of being another of Bond's conquests, she gets thrown out of a window. The next time you see her, she's dead. Her character added nothing to the story and seemed more like the writers forgot to write a second Bond girl into the movie so they just threw her in at the last minute. Moneypenny, Q and even M all got the shaft with limited screentime as well. The reason for that also being the reason I don't like this movie, Bruce Glover and Putter Smith. They tried the whole "saying shit calmly and in tandem to give the impression that they're badass" but failed on all counts. What should've been a creepy as hell line reading to give off a cold and calculating presence to the movie was probably the worst acting I've ever seen in a big budget film. They tried to be cool, they failed. They tried to make it seem as if their shitty line reading was a character trait, they failed. They even tried to kill Bond by poking him with shish kabobs that they set on fire and all that happened was probably the cheesiest death in a Bond movie I've ever seen, all because of Putter's terrible acting. If it wasn't for Jill St. John looking hella hot in the purple bikini despite the short hair and Connery who even though he was obviously aging and just not into it anymore, still managed to get some great one-liners in and kick some ass, this movie would be a complete waste of time. Still, Connery, St. John, a few choice moments, a couple of laughs and that awesome theme song make this at least worth a viewing. Plus you can make a drinking game out of it. Take a shot every time you feel like killing yourself because Glover and Putter are onscreen. I mean, geez...they're just terrible...
