Uniquely anarchic and thrillingly entertaining, the character-driven comedy follows several of Sir Terry Pratchett's best-loved creations on a riotous and emotional odyssey.

Paul Getty refused to pay, even after the kidnappers sent one of the ears of the younger Getty that they had cut off. After a number of months, the ransom went to down to around $3 million and the elder Getty, once considered the richest man in the world from his oil holdings, paid a tax deductible $2.2 million with the younger Getty's father John Paul Getty II paying the remaining $800,000 to release the teen.
