This musical version of Don Quixote is framed by an incident allegedly from the life of its author, Miguel de Cervantes. Don Quixote is the mad, aging nobleman who embarrasses his respectable family by his adventures. Backed by his faithful sidekick Sancho Panza, he duels windmills and defends his perfect lady Dulcinea (who is actually a downtrodden whore named Aldonza).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hugely disappointing musical, far inferior to stage version."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Richly entertaining adaptation of the popular Cervantes-inspired musical."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"True to the spirit of Cervantes? Perhaps not. A delightful musical? Definitely."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, ▄berCinÚ
"The translation from theatrical musical to movie musical doesn't get much more disastrous than in Man of La Mancha, a cheap, muddled, and badly put-together debacle"
‑ Christopher Null,
