Life, death, sex, religion. The Meaning of Life has it all, including the meaning of life. The first Monty Python movie I have seen and it was awesome! Monty Python takes on the biggest question of all time: What is the meaning of life? And drags it out into IV 1/2 sections. My favorite film genre of all time has got to be British comedy's, so naturally I enjoyed this movie. You never know what to... read more

A good movie

By now, I have seen all the movies involving the Monty Python and while I was wildly enthousiast at first, I must admit it that I was a little bit disappointed.

" Monty Python push the envelope one last time for what can be done in comedy. At the time this was full of originality, sick jokes, vulgar, fun and satiric jokes. It is also the film that is closest to their TV-show as it consist of several small episodes and sketches but with one basic important red line - it tells about life as we know it. It is also the film with the best musical numbers. The Ingmar Bergman parody where Death visits "our friends" is also one of the most fitting endings they c"
