Life of Brian
He wasn't the messiah. He was a very naughty boy.
A brilliant parody from the British comedy group Monty Python about the history of (not Jesus but the boy born right next door to The Manger, Brian). A Terry Jones directed film from 1979 that has since gained cult status. What many fans don't know is that this movie might never have happened if not for the financial assistance of George Harrison (of The Beatles).
Almost every cinema lover has his/her Christmas favourite that he/she likes to revisit on an annual basis as if it's part of a tradition. Preferred choice for most is Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life, for some it's John McTiernan's Die Hard & for few it's Chris Columbus' Home Alone but, considering the weirdo that I am, the one I keep revisiting on this festive day is Monty Python's Life of Brian.
One of the funniest, silliest & craziest films of all time, Life of Brian is slapstick & satirical humour at its finest, zaniest & sharpest. The film tells the story of Brian Cohen, a jewish man born on the same day & next door to Jesus Christ, who spends his life being mistaken…
The creation of religion in a nut-shell ;D
I think I'm going to change my name to Incontinentia Buttocks.
One of the funniest films ever made.
I have a very close relationship to this film, being one of the favorite films of both of my parents. My mother found it funny much because of the religious components in it, being a teacher in that subject and all. While my dad was just in it for the silliness. With this said I saw this very early on in my life. I found it extremely funny as a kid, even more funny as a teenager, and just hilarious as an adult. I don't know how many times I've seen it, but I know it was many years ago I saw the whole thing. So today I did when I had some spare time. Even thought of plugin in…
My dad didn't laugh once.
This distresses me.
An hour and a half of Python and not a single grin, snigger, giggle etc.
I don't even know who I'm living with anymore.

Review In A Nutshell:
Comedy is a tricky thing to achieve, as each individual develops their own brand and sensitivities of humour. From the age of 9, I was mainly introduced by the slapstick and childish humour of Adam Sandler and friends, which is why I cannot completely dismiss those films as complete garbage due to the nostalgia factor. As I grew, my comedic tastes have becomes more fine-tuned and become more appreciative of the intelligent and artistic intentions of the writers and actors behind their craft; but in saying that, I am still anchored by the sensibilities of my foundations.
Many consider Life of Brian to be a risky and offensive film,…
I think this is one you appreciate a little more as an adult, compared to Holy Grail.
I actually thought it was the weakest Monty Python film. Still very funny though.
A British classic. One of the funniest films ever made.
I think it was the biblical humor, but i enjoyed this more than Holy Grail
4 out of 5 (B+)
Best. And I always thought The Meaning of Life was good.
Intelligent humor, great comedic timing, roman legions, religious hordes, George Harrison, social commentary, and funny songs. This is it. One of the greatest comedies ever made I'm betting, and certainly my favorite. It takes a lot for a movie to make me laugh out loud when I'm watching it alone, but this managed that, and multiple times too.
If there is such a thing as a comedy epic, this has gotta be the poster-child. It's simply in a whole different class.

"He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy! Now, piss off!"
I felt really bad about not watching this movie. I mean I can pretty successfully recite most of Monty Python and The Holy Grail but I just never got around to this one. Well by never got around, I mean I was too lazy. But I finally did. And it was hilarious.
It's typical Monty Python fare, a general plot being used to connected a series of sketches, each funnier and more outrageous than the last, delivered perfectly from the small comedy troupe handling all of the roles. There is…
