“It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression!” “…Symbolic of his struggle against reality…”
"He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy". Such a quotable film and so funny with it.
Cutting and hilarious criticism of the nature of religion and religious movements through the lens of classic Mont Python humor stylings.
Not my favourite Monty Python but it’s a clever & witty classic none the less, controversially poking fun at Christianity
a trillion out of ten, i think about it daily
If you like Monty Pythons films this is right up your alley. If not, this seems like a jumbled mess.
Python's best realized film. All the zaniness and cutting observations you'd expect, AND a coherent plot.
Not my favorite Python film but there are still tons of hilarious scenes. Two words: biggus dickus
The best film about religion I’ve ever seen.
He’s not the messiah, he’s just the star of an all time great comedy.
