Anyone that saw both versions knows how disrespectful to Terry, and movie fans, the Universal edit really was.Gilliam's original cut of the film is 142 minutes long and ends on a dark note.

Universal executives thought the ending tested poorly, and Universal chairman Sid Sheinberg insisted on dramatically re-editing the film to give it a happy ending, a decision that Gilliam resisted vigorously.
