The Brothers Grimm (film)/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Dude, Not Funny: The kitten.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel: Holy shit, yes. Leave it to Terry Gilliam to make a gingerbread man terrifying.
    • The spider horse. THE FUCKING SPIDER HORSE. *shudder*
    • Pity the poor kitten that got chopped up into bits into a fan...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Jason Bourne and the Joker fighting Mary Magdalene...
  • Ho Yay: Bro Yay between the titular characters, who often argue like an old married couple. Even Lampshaded by Cavaldi.
    • "Maybe another kiss?"
  • Nausea Fuel: The scene with the spiderweb horse.
  • Never Live It Down: In-verse, Jakob and magic beans.
  • Special Effects Failure: Considering when the movie was made and the budget it had, some of the effects are unfortunately terrible.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not for Kids?: Hopefully no parents ever took their kids to see this based on the title.
    • Interestingly enough, if said parents actually read any of the original Grimm Tales, they would know better to begin with. The original stories have always been High Octane Nightmare Fuel specifically designed to scare the bajeezus out of any kid who hears them.
      • Gilliam, however, has stated that he intended the film for children.
