    An all star cast (for England) in a follow up to the previous years Hogfather. Unfortunately like the Hogfather this doesn't really work. The film (split into two parts on TV) drags something chronic and even Pratchett admits in the introduction that the original story has no plot as such. There are some glaring errors in the directing and editing that distract sometimes and the casting isn't perfect. Sean Astin is having fun as the naive and innocent tourist and David Bradley is great as the Barbarian but Tim Curry does his villain schtick with no real invention (apart from a slight Northern accent that keeps coming and going) and David Jason looks tired and a bit bored. Suspect Pratchett probably would work better as animation or with an experimental director like Terry Gilliam. This just falls short or being that good.

    This was a great adaptation. If you are a fan of Terry Pratchett's books, you'll love this.
