'' People called 'Romanes' they go the 'ouse ?'',
This review is from: Monty Python's Life Of Brian [DVD]  (DVD)
Greatest comedy ever? Maybe! Comedies get dated very quickly, but yet this wonderful cutting, social and political comedy will have you rolling arounding in side-splitting agony more than a quarter century after its release.
The Python gan were famed for the series the Flying Circus and The Search for the Holy Grail is also superb but Life of Brian proved to be their masterpiece. Despite managing to offend a lot of people by parodying the life of Christ, they managed to make the rest of the world laugh with wonderful characters are one of the most quotable scripts ever written. Among the best and most memorable lines are:
Brian's mum: 'He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy'
Pontius Pilate: 'This man commands a cwack legion. He wanks as high as any in Wome'
Prisoner: 'I'm Brian and so's my wife'
Reg: 'So apart from the roads, the wine, law and order, medicine, education, irrigation and public health...what've the Romans ever done for us?'
How do you get your graffiti to be grammatically correct? What is Biggus Dickus's wife called? Why should you always haggle? And just how many pressure groups are their in ancient Rome?
The acting is OTT in the extreme and perfectly done with the greatest comic script ever. It'll probably be making people laugh long into this century.
