A suicidal former radio DJ (Bridges) and a drop-out former professor of medieval history go in search of the Holy Grail in contemporary New York. The visual splendour of Gilliam's previous movies - 'Time Bandits2 and 'Baron Munchausen2 - is more restrained here, but the blend of myth, satire and romance is strong. Unfortunately, the wonderful central performances by Williams and Bridges are let down by a cop-out, up-beat ending.
