Product Description

Product Description

The first Monty Python film is a collection of some of their better-known television sketches, including the legendary 'Dead Parrot' sketch and the 'Lumberjack Song'. John Cleese, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin make up the troupe.

From Amazon.co.uk

And Now for Something Completely Different, Monty Python's first feature, is a reworking of their best skits from the first two seasons of the TV series. Originally made for the US market (where the show had yet to be aired), it was shot on film outside the usual studio sets ("Nudge Nudge", for example, is set in a tavern filled with passers-by). The writing and performances are fine and the film is packed with some of their best bits: "How to Avoid Being Seen", " Hell's Grannies", "Blackmail", "The Lumberjack Song" and "The Upper Class Twit of the Year", among others. Many of the sketches have been shortened, however, and the loss of the overly bright video sheen (the film has a muddy, dull look to it) and the invigorating presence of a live audience leaves the film sluggish at times. They're still feeling out the possibilities of the feature length, which they conquered with their next movie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1974). --Sean Axmaker

Monty Python has always been one of the comedy greats, so this video should come as no surprise as to the legendary wit and humour that all those involved had. Although a collection of sketches and skits from the series Monty Python's Flying Circus, 'And Now For Something Completely Different' still has areas in which you will laugh in. One of the best comedy compliations I've ever seen.

My friend recently introduced me to monty python and I'm glad he did!
The first film I saw was 'Monty Python and the holy grail' followed the next day by 'Monty Python's Life of Brian' (By the way these are both classics, buy them ASAP!) but next in line was 'And now for something completly different.' What a great film!
I give it four stars as it doesn't make you laugh all the way through the film, but the bits that do make you laugh are very funny. Especially the dead parrot scene, which I feel is the best scene of the lot. Anyway, make your own mind up, and buy or rent this film!!

As 'didi-5' (via IMDb website) said about this film:

"Monty Python used this collection of sketches from their first and second TV series (re-packaged and staged again) to break into the American market. A gamble, but a successful one.

All the greats are here - Parrot Sketch, Dirty Fork, Hell's Grannies, Fresh Fruit Self Defence, Marriage Guidance - and more besides. The animated links, specially created for the movie, are funny and well put-together: and new versions of Killer Cars and the story of the Spot are excellent. In many cases the film versions of the sketches outshine those in the TV series and are more memorable, particularly those which first appeared in series 1.

This is a very good introduction to the team and a strong reminder of their early work for the BBC."

This film consists of reworkings of sketches from Series 1 & 2 of Flying Circus. If you havnt seen the TV series then this sums it up really. It includes classic sketches such as The Hungarian Phrase Book, Dead Parrot Sketch and Self Defence Against Fresh Fruit. Great stuff!

The most famous sketch is that of the dead parrott ("just resting..."), but I preferred the planned expedition to Kilimandjaro, with a guy having to hide one of his eyes, so as to avoid seeing everything in double... Imagine his trouble when at the end he sees a
woman in swimming suit, with her two breasts... Also liked Ministry of strange walking.

If you are into Python, then you will love this sketch based film, with some of the very bestest sketches shown here. Many of my personal favourites in fact! ( killing Joke, Blackmail, upper-class twit of the year, trouble at mill, etc ) plus some of Terry Gilliams superb animations ( killer cars, old lady at the bus stop ....) completely brilliant and never fails to have me in stitches!

1971 and Python release this movie at the cinema!!! I wish I had the chance to see it on the big screen and sharing a laugh with the rest of the cinema goers! Anyway, this is some of their good to best sketches from the televison series. I actually prefer these ones, there is more effort and polished feel to the sketches (especially the "dirty fork" and "wasn't smelly" clip just so much funnier). Yeah, ok, we've seen them all before on TV but it's Monty Python and the movie just about stands up today. Some sketches are ok, some are just as funny as when we first saw them. Most of the time I know what is about to happen and I still laugh, just a little gem of a movie. Also, if you are not familiar with Python then it's a great start to one of the best British comedy ensemble there ever was!
