Brilliant! Classic Monty Python!

"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

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. I mean, I more or less enjoyed all their movies but I didn’t find them really excellent and I came to the conclusion that their humor is not really my cup of tea. However, there is one exception and it is this flick. Indeed, contrary to ... 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.

"Everyone always mistakenly thinks this is a satire on the life of Jesus, when really it's anything but. Brian constantly makes it clear that he's not Jesus, he's not the Messiah. That's a topic that usually overshadows the movie itself, but I just had to get it out of the way. This is one of very few times where comedy based on misunderstandings actually works for me! It's just hilarious how Brian's misinformed following just keeps growing and growing from what starts as one simple act of self-p"

Movie Reviews (151-200) (50 movies items)

" A bunch of great jokes that has similarities to the most known story of all time, but is about a dude that just happen to have a similar life to Jesus. It is good that Christians don't sort to terror when it comes to making jokes about religion than the members of Monty Python would all have been targeted for death long time ago. Still it managed to get banned in Norway for twenty years for blasphemy by censors which could illustrate that Norwegians probably protected the comedians from death "
