    I recently listened to the audiobook of Cary Elwes' memoir of making this film, and it was fun. The audiobook actually has a lot of the real people reading/giving/ their own contributions to the memoir, which makes it a lot of fun. Mandy Patinkin mentions how the film is this generation's Wizard of Oz and I agree with him.

    So I rewatched the film and found that a former literature professor of mine in college, whom I am FAcebook friends with, is featured in one of the special features of the Blu Ray talking about fairy tales. Funny thing to see.

    Anyway, this looks like fun.

    I posted all the actors names before I watched it and saw that it ID's everyone as the participate.

    I think it's more fun to watch this without knowing who is going to show up next.

    I thought Brian Cranston, Elijah Wood and a few others gave some very Shakespearian performances. Lol.

    I love the cheap toy props and mustaches and such. Yes... it was a lot of fun to watch.
