Something isn't quite right in the deep dark forests of Germany, and I'll bet that it has something to do with all these German people walking about with English accents.
Brothers Grimm is a movie that didn't know if it wanted to be an grown up movie or a kid movie and decided to go somewhere in-between with a fairly formulaic plot.
I couldn't stop thinking as I watched this that I had seen this movie before, and not just the fairy tale portions. The brothers are a pair of con men who are eventually called upon to deal with a real haunting. This has been done only about a 100 times before.
Considering that this is the first movie Terry Gilliam has directed since Fear and Loathing, I really expected something more from him.
Beyond being rather formulaic it boasts one of the most annoying performances by anyone ever in a film. Peter Stormare puts on a stereotypic Italian accent and prances around the movie like some dinner theater version of Alice in Wonderland.
Stormare seems like he's acting in a Wiggles episode while everyone else seems to think its masterpiece theater and puts on their best fake English accent despite the fact they're playing Germans.
Overall I would give it a C. After all it's not the worst movie to hit theaters this summer and it has some nice moments.
