These guys should reboot the Python Franchise (or is that heresy too...),

This is a really enjoyable comedy-documentary surrounding the making and release of the classic Monty Python film "The Life of Brian". Whilst played by modern actors all selected or made-up for their similarity to the original Pythons both in terms of appearance and also personality. There are some classic scenes which show the typical thin-skin of a certain tall Python.
I am too young to remember much about the release of the film, howeve having done a bit of research to review this it seems that this film does accurately portray the events which surrounds Brian's release.
There is some slapstick too, a scene reminiscent of the "alien spacecraft" scene in the film, which I suspect is a nod to teh theories of Erich von Daniken. The same aliens are here too putting their tuppence worth in the controversy which followed the film.
All in all this is a very enjoyable romp through the history of a controversal, yet brilliantly funny film. Highly Recommended
