"He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!"

After the Monty Python troupe bathed in the massive success of their hilarious low-budget picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the team soon regrouped to produce another silly, incredibly hilarious comedy. Life of Brian is a brilliant sacrilegious production that combines irreverent humour as well as political and religious satire... read more

Monty Python's Life of Brian

This is, for me, the best film of the British comedy group Monty Python. More basting that "Knights of the Square Table" and less pretentious than "The Meaning of Life", the various sketches, here, have greater coherence and substance criticism. Even the production design is more elaborate, with the soundtrack and songs. The script, the best, no doubt, interpretations, satire oozes everywhere.

Some of My Favorite Film Taglines (720 movies items)

""A motion picture destined to offend nearly two thirds of the civilized world. And severely annoy the other third." "See the movie that's controversial, sacrilegious, and blasphemous. But if that's not playing, see The Life of Brian." "Honk if you love Brian." "The film that is so funny it was banned in Norway." "He wasn't the messiah. He was a very naughty boy." "Just when you thought you were saved...""

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: January (55 movies items)

"January 13 "Have I got a big nose, Mum?" "Stop thinking about sex!" "I wasn't!" "You're always on about it. "Will the girls like this? Will the girls like that? Is it too big? Is it too small?" While it is not as hilarious as The Holy Grail, it is still a very funny movie in it's own right. I wasn't even expecting it to top the latter movie, since it's pretty much impossible to."
