So Is He Saying Merlin is Fat?

This is from A.O. Scott's review of "Shrek the Third" in the New York Times:
Meanwhile the disgraced Prince Charming (Rupert Everett), exiled to a career in dinner theater, organizes a rebellion of fairy-tale villains. Eric Idle plays Merlin as a hippy druid, and Larry King and Regis Philbin do fine work as ugly stepsisters. And of course Eddie Murphy is the indispensable Donkey.

Now, Eric Idle isn't quite as trim as he was during his Monty Python days (and honestly, neither are we. Nonetheless, we believe the word Mr. Scott meant to use is "hippie."
