One of the best comedies of the 1970's is "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
The film which return to the big screen with minutes of new footage, but that's not the reason why you should see this movie. The reason why you want to see it is because it's turly a classic comic film.
The film has lived up to the luncey of the Monty Python troupe which I watched on television as a teenager. The film is very funny as the Monty Python, gang screwed the King Author legend. This film contain some very funny stuff, so funny that no comedic film in the year 2001 would come to a classic that came out in 1975. The movie is a something to treasure.
And oh yes, the music score is top notch. If you come for the start of the movie, you be entertained by the opening credits, they are the best opening credits I've ever saw, nothing has ever come close.
The Monty Python crew is by far the BEST, bar none! This is movie that you can watch over and over again, repeating your favorite lines or jokes with them, or just anticipating the lines and snickering as you wait for them.
Monty Python has done alot of great shows and movies, but, this is by far the best. Looking at the whole two weeks of filming it took to make this film that was done for less than ,000.00 is absolutely amazing and shows just what a roll they were on.
From the opening credits to the last line you will be in stitches. Listen closely for all the little comments, such a the English K N I G G I T S, not knights with the silent K. The taunts are ones that you will use on your best and worst friends.
Go and SEE IT NOW!!!
This is, without a doubt, the best comedy produced in the 1970s. Hilarious from beginning to end. Don't miss this opportunity to see this movie on the big screen.
If you haven't seen this yet - rent it TODAY!!!
You'll know you're hooked when you catch yourself repeating phrases like "NI NI NI" and "I'M INVINCIBLE" to your friends and they know EXACTLY what you're talking about.
My sister and I (and probably every single fan of this film) can replay the whole Frenchman scene from memory.
GO SEE THIS!!! (and be sure to read the credits)
This has got to be one of the funniest films of all time, along with 'Monty Python's Life Of Brian'
French soldier: "You're mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!"
Father: "Wun dey sun, an all this'll be yours.." Son: "But ah dorn't wun'tit!"
Classic lines. In fact so many classic lines that, once committed to memory, they'll make you the life and soul of any party.
The castle scene, the rabbit scene, the bridge scene. So many classic scenes that will keep you and your 'Python' buddies entertained for hours over a few beers. Even the credits are hillarious, unless you're a mooose LMAO
As usual the whole Python team play many varied characters in a total piss-take of the King Arthur legend.
The only downer about the film is that it does have a bit of a daft and meaningless ending just when you could gladly sit through another hour or so of hillarity. Still, it doesn't spoil it. You tend to get the feeling that they probably just ran out of idea's or got fed-up and decided that was enough for one day and went down the pub.
Definately a film that you will watch again and again and again.
