I guess I should look up Mr. Pratchett. Thanks, but I really
don't remember the movie now: some time ago when I posted that,
but I guess I did not like it.

It's based on the Terry Pratchett novel. I guess you're not a fan.


I loved the book (and pretty much all Pratchett!). how is the movie, goofy?

As a fan, I enjoyed it. But I think it was too faithful to the book, which made it too long, and it contained unnecessary scenes which newcomers might get turned off by.
