Overview
From the deliciously demented mind of co-writer/producer/director Terry Gilliam (BRAZIL, 12 MONKEYS, MONTY PYTHON) comes this twisted adventure of young schoolboy Kevin who is swept along on a crime spree through the holes of history by a greedy gang of wee thieves. But even if these ruthless little renegades can entertain a testy Napoleon (Ian Holm,) outsmart a not-too-bright Robin Hood (John Cleese), trick the heroic King Agamemnon (Sean Connery) and destroy the dark forces of Evil (David Warner), will they survive the very astounding wrath of The Supreme Being himself?

Michael Palin, Shelley Duvall, Katherine Helmond and Ralph Richardson co-star in this ingenious, outrageous and totally hilarious fairy tale classic that kids, grown-ups and critics alike all call "One Of The Greatest Fantasy Movies Ever Made!" This Special Two-Disc Edition is now presented with an all-new High-Definition transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX audio, plus a full Bonus Disc featuring in-depth Terry Gilliam extras, DVD-ROM surprises and much more.
