Synopsis

Double-bill of cult British comedy. In 'Nuns on the Run' (1990), Charlie and Brian (Robbie Coltrane and Eric Idle) are two conmen who want to go straight but need one last heist to finance a life in Rio. However, their plans go awry when their getaway car breaks down in front of a convent. Pursued by the gang from whom they stole the money, they bluff their way into the convent and make a startling transformation - into Sisters Euphemia and Inviolata. In Terry Gilliam's 'Time Bandits' (1981), schoolboy Kevin is rescued from his dull suburban life when a gang of dwarves emerge from his wardrobe and carry him off through space and time. Their travels bring them into contact with some leading historical figures, including John Cleese as Robin Hood and Sean Connery as the Greek King Agamemnon.
