About the Movie

Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges, Amanda Plummer and Mercedes Ruehl star in Terry Gilliam's must-see comic masterpiece. Williams is Parry, a homeless history professor who lives in a fantasy world full of castles, Red Knights and damsels in distress. Bridges co-stars as Jack, New York's #1 shock deejay, whose off-hand arrogance triggers a tragedy which ruins his career. Penniless and without prospects, Jack finds himself plucked from disaster by the most improbable of saviors... Parry. And so the amazing story of the Fisher King unfolds a modern quest for redemption and the Holy Grail, filled with humor, heartbreak and ravishing romance.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For every wild ride through Manhattan by an imaginary Red Knight trailing billows of flame, there is a small, comic encounter in a more down-to-earth mode. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jan 29, 2010

Fresh: So what if it's not perfect? It's magic. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jan 29, 2010

Fresh: The Fisher King has two actors at the top of their form, and a compelling, well-directed and well-produced story. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The Fisher King is a disorganized, rambling and eccentric movie that contains some moments of truth, some moments of humor, and many moments of digression. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

My actual rating is 4 1/2 stars, but I do not have the option

For a reasonable price, I would buy this movie in any format to watch at any time

Good Movie

I bought it to hear the song “I love NY in June” by Harry Nilsson, which only came at the end, but I loved seeing Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges together. I thought it was a really entertaining movie. Can’t wait to watch it again.
