By Scott Goldfine

Tim Robbins (“Bull Durham”) stars as Erik, a disenchanted Viking on a quest to relieve the dreariness of the dark ages. Directed by former Monty Python member Terry Jones, who also stars in the film, this misguided comedy is suffocated by listless humor and dime-store special effects.

Cameos by another Python alum John Cleese and Mickey Rooney are wasted as well. Rated PG-13.
