    ...and man I hope nobody has ever watched this on LSD. They are probably still laughing...or in shock.

    You must watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail!!! :hyper:

    Way funnier than the meaning of life!!
  5. All the python films are great!

    But it is wafer thin!

    I think you should be selected for the boys rugby team to play the masters this afternoon!

    And the death scene just cracks me up every time.

    Holy Grail is the ****! Meaning of Life is my least fave, though I enjoy it. Life of Brian rocks.

    My least favourite Python film.

    Gotta go with Holy Grail as my favourite.

    Meaning of Life is one of my favorite films of all time.

    Always remember... "it was... the salmon mousse".
  12. That movie is freaky even if viewed stone cold sober.

    My fav is Life of Brian. I saw Meaning of Life at some very young age. I didn't know I had seen it until as a teenager we watched it and you just do not forget the exploding fat guy.

    Grail is my least favorite.
  14. Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government! If I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

    Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I'm being repressed!

    in order from favorite to almost favorite:

    the meaning of life-very uneven but has the funniest sketches, like, ever
    life of brian- very well done, i would like to see the extra 40 minutes with the kidnapping of pilate's wife, etc.
    monty python and the holy grail-amazing considering the budget, but that's also part of the charm
    and now for something completely different-a nice greatest hits rendition of the t.v. series

    my fave, the meaning of life, could have been improved if jones had accepted julian doyle's editing suggestion: put the restaurant cleanup scene after the credits.

    I saw it when it first came out. I remember very clearly how everyone in the movie theater hollered during the Mr. Creosote sketch - as if no one could decide whether to laugh out loud, moan in horror or vomit in disgust.


  20. If your movie scene disturbs Quentin Tarantino...wow! :D
