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.
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.
