Description: An exuberant, vivid fantasy about a suburban boy who joins a group of renegade time-traveling dwarves. Together they plunder and loot their way from era to era, encountering the likes of Agamemnon, Napoleon, and Robin Hood along the way. Funny and offbeat with convincing homemade special effects, this piece of movie magic was written and directed by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam. (Rated "PG." 1981, 116 min.)
