When Flynn recites the line from A Midsummer Night's Dream he says "that WE have but slumbered here." but the actual line is "that YOU have but slumbered here." Puck is talking to the audience at this time and the word 'we' makes no sense. See more »
I can't do this alone.
You've got me, you know.
Well, no offense, Judson, but you're...

My kids and I LOVED this movie! It took me a few minutes to catch on to the tongue-in-cheek/spoof/parody character of this one. Once you get it, though, the sometimes less-than-great special effects and sometimes corny plot elements fall into place beautifully. And yes, there actually WAS a plot, complete with interesting characters, and a STELLAR cast. In addition to seeing Noah Wyle's funny side, you get to see comedy at its best with Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin, and Olympia Dukakis in roles that MUST have been written just for them. The chemistry between the Librarian and the bodyguard is terrific. Watch this one with an open mind and you won't be disappointed. HOPING FOR A SEQUEL!!!!
