March 26, 2009
The idea of telling the story of a Viking warrior who thought there must be more to life than rape and pillage is an amusing one, and for the most part Erik the Viking is an enjoyable film.

It doesn't make any more sense than before, but it does at least zip by at a breakneck pace, making the film more fun than ever.
| Original Score: 3/5

Full of vile personalities, sick gags and outlandish set pieces, Erik The Viking is up there with Jabberwocky and Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure as one of the funniest historical comedies ever made.

Doesn't measure up to the best of the Python films, but it consistently entertains through the occasional gags that do not work and dialogue that is sometimes obscured by sound effects.

Just enough Pythonesque weirdness to warrant a visit.

"Erik the Viking," a Wagnerian slapstick fantasy, has the feel of a grown-up bedtime comedy, a gross, sillier "Princess Bride."
April 24, 2011
A stillborn comedy in which minutes sometimes mysteriously go by between even attempted gags, and in which virtually no comic scene works up to any kind of viable punch line or payoff.

Robbins looks terribly confused in the lead, and Mickey Rooney is badly miscast in a cameo as Erik's grandfather.

Not a funny film, and neither well-directed nor exciting.

January 1, 2000
An utterly worthless exercise in waste and wretched excess, uninformed by the slightest spark of humor, wit or coherence.
