Funny / The Brothers Grimm

From the Terry Gilliam Film

  • The whole film in general. When it's not attacking the viewer with bizarre Nightmare Fuel, it's downright hysterical.
  • This gem very early on. Jake almost blabs on how lucrative their business is and:
    Will: He can't hold his ale.
    Jake: I can't hold me ale!
    Everyone in the Tavern: (loud cheers)
  • When they arrive at Marbaden and a tomboy tells her father about the Grimm's when the suspicious village is holding them at gunpoint:
    Will: Look at this strapping young lad!
    Peasant: "He" is my daughter.
    Will: (Beat) And a fine wife he'll make some lucky man!
  • Cavaldi is a riot and a scene-stealer at all times he appears.
    Cavaldi: The Great Cavaldi never panics.
    [Sees a small fluffy cat nuzzle his leg]
    Cavaldi: AHHHHHHHHHH!
    [kicks the cat into the spinning blades of his torture device, shredding it into burger]
  • "Trust the toad!"
  • At one point in the film, the wolf shakes its head at a character's stupidity.
