The Brothers Grimm

Con-men Will and Jake Grimm (Matt Damon and Heath Ledger) travel from town to town ridding frightened townsfolk of beasts and boogeymen they themselves have created; charging the populace a handsome fee for the service, of course. However when they encounter a real enchanted forest, they'll need more than smoke and mirrors to magic away these evil spirits. Terry Gilliam's comic fantasy received less than kind criticism on its release, sadly failing to hit the heights of 'Baron Munchausen' and magnum opus, 'Brazil', but is certainly worth a look.
