Product Description

A triple bill of Monty Python movies. 'The Holy Grail' (1975) was their second feature. King Arthur and his trusty knights fearlessly (on the most part) travel the length and breadth of the country in search of the mythical Holy Grail. On their way they have to deal with the sarcastic taunts of the French Knight, the Knights who say 'Ni', Tim the Enchanter and the Terror of the Cave of Caerbannog amongst other things. 'Life of Brian' (1979) was banned in 17 countries on release. Set during Biblical times, the film tells the story of Brian (Graham Chapman), an accidental messiah whose life runs in eerie parallel to that of Jesus Christ. His misadventures come to the attention of Pilate, crucifixion inevitably follows, and the film ends with the infamous group rendition of the song 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life'. Finally, in 'The Meaning of Life' (1983) the Monty Python team embark after the holy grail of human understanding with a series of sketches aimed at discovering the meaning of life itself. Includes the show-stopping anti-contraception musical number 'Every Sperm is Sacred', a schoolmaster's overly vivid demonstration of the facts of life for his students, and the infamous sequence in which a restaurant diner goes one mint too far...

These films demonstrate that you don't need to spend millions of dollars to make a good movie. My personal favourite is the meaning of life - Some scenes don't work very well, and it's not really a film - just a series of funny sketches. But worth watching many times over. The every sperm is sacred song is a classic!

For those of you who don't know of Monty Python, I'll give a short history of the show. Monty Python began in Britain in 1969 I think (please correct me if I'm wrong) as Monty Python's Flying Circus. One of the most outrageous and alternative sketch shows that hadn't been seen since the mad stylings of The Goons. Monty Python's Flying Circus was a bizarre combination of hilarious human sketches and random animations, such as, the now famous, giant foot (In fact I'd go so far as to say that without Monty Python, randomness wouldn't be such an important factor in comedy today). The cast made names for themselves on Monty Python- John Cleese, Eric Idle and Michael Palin are amoung the stars.
The Monty Python movies lost nothing from the original capers of the television series. Just as entertaining, interesting and yes- philosophical (philosophy was often the central pivot from which the cast drew ideas from, the sketches are not just laugh out loud funny, they are also often profound).
I cannot recommend this box-set enough. Many laughs will follow.

Well, what can I say? these are some of the best films ever made, so funny and rediculous! I enjoy some of the truely phylisophical points made in the movies, like: is having no arms or legs just a flesh wound? I don't know the answer,if it happen to me them I would know! Great, funny films.
