An endlessly hilarious classic which if not seen, leaves many pop-culture references unexplained. This movie shaped our culture in a great way. The British sense of humor displayed relies heavily on the deadpan and expression of absurdity. And absurd it is, everything from a man-killing rabbit (defeated by a 'holy hangrenade') to a woman absent mindedly beating a cat against a wall from no reason whatsoever, to a quest for a "shrubbery" this is one of the most quoted movies of all time.

From its opening multi-language titles (that sure looks like Swedish) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail helped to define "irreverence" and became an instant cult classic. This movie is clever on jokes and humor. I noticed that the movie is really cheap and that's what makes it so funny like that scene when are main characters are getting chase by a big monster and the narrator said "So are heroes are getting chase by the beast but suddenly the animator died of a heart attack" and then it showed you the guy who doing the animation of the beast fell on the floor dead.

If you watched the British series Monty Python (or the John Cleese series "Faulty Towers", and liked it, watch this movie - it's freakin hilarious. If you did and didn't get the humor in it - forget about it - you'll be clueless once again.

The Comedy Carries the Movie

I love Monty Python, and The Holy Grail was my first introduction to the comedy troop. Their comedy is insane, and their ideas are bizarre, and that’s a large part of the reason their TV Show and movies are remembered with such fondness. The Holy Grail is a perfect exemplification of their odd sense of humor. The movie is less a story then it is an odd series of sketches surrounding one group of characters, so while the jokes themselves are legendarily funny, the overall story suffers.

Most people know the best parts of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, even if they’ve never seen it before. The “French Kanigget,” “Bring out ya dead,” and “It’s only a flesh wound” bits are some of the most iconic moments in movie history, and for good reason; they’re funny as hell.

Even after a d...

Monty Python and the Holy Grail review

In watching comedies one has to factor in the humor injected. Is it slapstick, based on dialogue, gestures, set pieces or wardrobe (or lack thereof) used? You get all of these with Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Even before the film starts, you see the unique wit used by the director with regards to the use of subtitles. The people responsible were sacked, and for those responsible for sacking have been sacked. Starting with the end credits was another distinctive idea. The films had many uproarious moments: The Black Knight (John Cleese) slaughtered by King Arthur (Graham Chapman), he mentioned that “it’s only a flesh wound” after his arms have been cut off. Prince Herbert (Terry Jones) thought that his father was talking about the curtains, in spite of the lands he was pointin...

Sidesplitting humor...

African or European? Yes ladies and gents, this is the question you should be asking yourself: African or European? From the moment this hilarious low budget film begins on their pointless task to the point where King Arthur and Sir Bedivere get arrested for murder, you will be laughing until you wet yourself. Then you will be laughing at the person next to you who has just wet their pants. This follows the quest for the Knights of the Round Table, and after being told off by God, the quest for the Holy Grail. Although the plot line is a bit mixed, the characters are developed so quickly you don't realize that it happened. The acting is somewhat woeful, but the sheer stupidity is enough to keep anyone confused.Director Terry Gilliam has dipped deep into the vaults of time and of course th...
