    A friend asked me this and now we're both perplexed. Here's the scene...

    It's from a fantasy type movie and the only part we remember is someone firing a musket and another character (who can travel really fast) out runs the shot, grabs some armour and causes the shot to reverse direction maybe more than once. We think it happened on the ocean or over water.

    I thought it was the Adventures of Baron Munchausen but my buddy was sure John Cleese was in it and he also said that he recently watched ABM and that scene was not in it. So how about it? Does anybody remember what movie it was from?

    UPDATE! I was on IMDB.com and think it might be Time Bandits, another Terry Gilliam film. Can anybody comfirm or deny this?

    I don't think it was Time Bandits either (although it's been a year or so since I've watched that movie)...

    This scene is from Munchausen. It's Eric Idle's character that performs the feat.

    The Adventures of Baron Munchausen to be exact.
