Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Adventure • PG • 1975 • 1 hr 31 min
Is this the greatest comedy of all time? It’s certainly in the conversation.
Endlessly quotable. Endlessly rewatchable.
Singularly, peculiarly, and ridiculously British and yet still universally funny. Endlessly quotable. Not great movie making but fun.
Really funny easily one of the best Monty python movies you'll get a lot more references after watching
You have to understand professional medieval historians LOVE this movie. Inaccurate in a way that really gets it. Pastiche-y but worth it
First Monty Python I saw, instantly became a fan and seeked the rest. They created their own brand of absurd, silly and yet smart humor.
Kind of hard to put into words, but I watched for the quotes and wasn’t disappointed.
This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.
A prime example of what a great cast can do with a small budget. It’s unabashedly absurdist, infinitely quotable, and endlessly rewatchable.
One of the all time great comedy classics

Brian Cohen is an average young Jewish man, but through a series of ridiculous events, he gains a reputation as the Messiah. When he's not dodging his followers or being scolded by his shrill mother, the hapless Brian has to contend with the pompous Pontius Pilate and acronym-obsessed members of a separatist movement. Rife with Monty Python's signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian's life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.
