Essential for Python fans,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monty Python: Live At The Hollywood Bowl [DVD]  (DVD)
I had a fun time watching this DVD. I first saw it alone and then with my sister, who also loves Monty Python.
We both laughed until we cried during most of the sketches. However, there are a select few that we didn't laugh at, and the audience on the DVD don't laugh either during these moments, so we can't be alone about this. I can see that they were supposed to be funny, but for me they didn't produce any laughter, just smiles. (I am very picky with the five-star rating.)
The lack of any bonus material (except for the trailer) is also disappointing, and the sound is in mono, which is pretty lame.
Still, it's great fun and the bits that are funny (which is about 90% of the show) are Monty Python at their best, so don't hesitate purchasing this DVD.
My favourite sketch is the one with the husband and wife who's trying to enjoy dinner, but she can't offer him any "proper" food. The thing I love about it is that no one in the Python troupe can keep a straight face and cracks up constantly!
