Meaning of life might notch up past Life of Brian though. It’s a tough one. “Every sperm is sacred” and the football match are TOUGH scenes to beat.

It’s a tough call. Life of Brian was more consistent and Hollywood regular. You could take anybody to see Life of Brian. but Meaning of Life was a little more Python-y, Holy Grail moreso.

If put up against non Python movies, Life of Brian holds up as the others *are* more like sketch comedy.

Ok. I begrudgingly give this to you but it was hard.

Oh… I forgot about the vomit scene. Yes, you’re right. Life of Brian wins.

===

I hated that scene. In fact, I lost some respect for Monty Python after that.

====

I try to pretend it never happened. I never thought of Python as particularly deep but in middle/high school it was more intellectual than most stuff out there and liked most of the humor.

Absolutely. It was probably their most moral-stance movie. I was proudly Methodist at the time and didn’t take any offense. The idea of a parallel situation was fantastic and as I was taught to “think for myself”, the overall message jibed well with me.

My views are also different now but I’m grateful for the basic “do good be good” Methodist message. No hell or devil, not a whole lot about heaven. Basically humanism. No regrets and I never hated religion – mythology / believing in something bigger than you is fantastic for people — I just don’t go for culty things. They mess too much with people’s heads.

It takes a certain outlook to appreciate Python. I don’t like a lot of comedy that other people love, so I can appreciate your perspective in that way.
