Movie Info

It's Millennium Eve and Blackadder is hosting a dinner party for a few select friends, Lady Elizabeth ('Miranda Richardson' ), Viscount George (Hugh Laurie), Archbishop Melchett ('Stephen Fry' ), and Archbishop Darling (Tim McInnerny). Baldrick (Tony Robinson) devises yet another of his infamous cunning plans to help his ever greedy master Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) con money from his gullible friends. The pair build a "time machine" from empty cereal packets and place bets with their friends as to when in history they will travel, retrieving various artifacts from their travels as proof, items which Blackadder already owns! However, in a strange twist of fate the time machine actually works and the pair are thrown back in history initially to the Jurassic period. Gradually the pair start to return to their own time stopping off at various famous times in history such as Sherwood Forest and the Battle of Waterloo but will they make it home?

Although it lacks the non-stop punch of the series, particularly III and Goes Forth, the group still manages to be very amusing. Atkinson is quite an actor, and I give Tony Robinson great credit for surviving his role through the entire series. If it weren't for House, I'd be a Hugh Laurie fan. Stephen Fry was gearing up to hit paydirt with the contract to record the Harry Potter series.

Hehehe!! A divine comedy that is both daft and brilliant hehehe!! I enjoyed this very much, seeing a number of my favorite english theater actors together, its silly yet its not that type of silly comedy that gives you a headache. This is like sweet candy. :)
