Gilliam's idea is great. He's made a movie full of tall tales with an old man at the center. The Baron is sincere; he's not a liar. But no one believes him. The trouble is, you spend most of the movie watching the scenery and forgetting the plot. No particular bit of dialogue stands out. None of the characters are memorable (except Robin Williams' King of the Moon). It's a shame this movie is such a disappointment. Gilliam had good ideas, but they were poorly executed. It would have helped if the script put a different spin on the Baron Munchausen idea.
