Storyline Heading
Will and Jake Grimm are brothers who travel around the Napoleonic countryside vanquishing monsters and demons in exchange for quick money. But when the French authorities figure out their scheme, the con men are forced to content with a real magical curse when they enter an enchanted forest where young maidens keep disappearing under mysterious circumstances. The Brothers Grimm are forced to confront all that their imaginations have brought to life in this epic battle between fantasy and reality.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - This is neither a telling of the true story of the famous fairy tale authors nor a straight-ahead action adventure nor a clean, family-friendly film but an effects-laden and violent film with very odd and sometimes over-the-top humor. Creepy and violent moments make the film a bit intense for younger children.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Terry Gilliam's "The Brothers Grimm" is a work of limitless invention, but it is invention without pattern, chasing itself around the screen without finding a plot.

USA Today Full Review
Average If there were a movie genre called "the non-starter," it sounds as if The Brothers Grimm could be a leader of the pack.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 94 moviegoer opinions. These certainly aren't the greatest opinions. They are all over the place. About 25% loved it and 25% didn't care for it or even disliked it. The rest rated it "Very Good" to "Good," which isn't too bad but indicates an average to above average movie at best. I would suggest that you read our detailed moviegoer opinions before deciding if this movie is right for you. Many complained that the story was disjointed, weird, slow and not what they expected.
