Monty Python's Life of Brian review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 12/05/12
One of the popular comedies of all time, this picture delivers. With their type of films always expect silliness and wacky characters. Very racy for its time though it doesn't poke fun at religion and Jesus in general. Best bits would be when the roman soldiers giggle at the sound of Biggus Dickus, crowd chanting for Brian and the crucifixion party. Most entertaining character would come from Pontius Pilate. Sets, costumes and direction were gorgeous and way better than The Holy Grail. Screenplay was good with lines: "You've got to think for yourselves!" "What have the Romans ever done for us?" singing: "Always look on the bright side of life." and "I'm Brian and so's my wife" Life of Brian is hilarious comedy on politics, optimism outlook on life and religion despite it's ludicrous figures and premise. This is an underrated comedy.
