4.0 out of 5 stars The comedy greats, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different [1971] [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
This filmed version of some the best Monty Python sketches was made to promote them in the US, and although it didn't really work in that respect, its great that we have the Python team, on film in widescreen, in their prime. The sketches are amongst their very best: The Parrot Sketch, Dirty Fork, Upper Class Twit, Blackmail, Lumberjack, Accountant to Lion Tamer, Sir Edward Ross etc etc.

Its great entertainment, and not having seen any of the TV shows for a long time, I had forgotten the clever way some sketches linked to the next one. The Pythons always gave Spike Milligan credit as their inspiration for that idea.

A lot of the comedy on the DVD is worthy of 5 stars, but at only 85mins long with very little in the way of real extras, I've docked it a star (would have been 1/2 a star if possible). That said its pretty cheap to buy, and if you don't want to spend a lot more money on the TV series then this is still a great buy.
