First of all, I have no respect for "paid" critics reviews.
Roger Ebert: Damn! If I give up my salary would you give me more credibility? I'll do it for you!

I have an M.A. in Scandinavian Folklore & Mythology from the University of Washington. My first book, "The Troll Tale & Other Scary Stories" is a required text in folklore classes. "The Brothers Grimm" is the worst movie ever made about folklore. In real life, the brothers were born in the 1780s, so they could not have been full-grown men in the 1790s. They also did not roam the countryside, duping gullible, superstitious peasants. They led a scholarly movement, which revered peasants as living relics of the shining past. The brothers collected stories from servants, especially their nanny, not from weird personal experiences.
Josh: Good point, professor! Dimension Films should've checked with you before they made this documentary. Now people are going to think that the brothers Grimm wrote those stories after they walked through a haunted forest and battled an immortal sorceress.
