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).
I think I'm going to change my name to Incontinentia Buttocks.
One of the funniest films ever made.
The creation of religion in a nut-shell ;D
I completely understand why people banned this; why people find it an outrage if they're Christian. But really, they're going too far to claim this as blasphemy. The Pythons are a simply making a movie on how the outside world views religious beliefs. They are not claiming these events to be true, nor false. Rather an idea that shows how stupid religion looks.
One person mishears a word, such as the "meek" for the "cheese makers". Another time they misunderstand Brian completely and follow him, proclaiming he's the messiah. There are no grounds, and what they follow is idiocy. But they are not proclaiming Christ to be false. Actually, he's the only character of the film portrayed in good light.…
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.
Brian was born on the original Christmas Day in a stable next door to Jesus and from his birth and throughout his life he is mistaken for a prophet.
This film caused controversy on its release, especially with certain religious groups. It was deemed blasphemous and mocking, but on closer inspection this is not a film out to change the world and peoples beliefs, it's simply a hilarious tale of Brian and his continuing mistaken identity. Brought to our screens by the amazing Monty Python team this is a comedy riot. Although some of the set pieces seem a little disjointed they all manage to come together making this a timeless British comedy that never fails to raise many smiles…
Monty Python's Life of Brian must be one of the funniest, if not the funniest film I've ever seen. The great mix of silly and ridiculous humor and satire on religion is what makes this one of the funniest movies ever made.
And thank you for the suggestion Monty Python, maybe I'll go see La Notte.

I just watched LIFE OF BRIAN in blu-ray AND with subtitles, which enhanced the movie every bit as much as the improved picture and sound. Yes, it's uneven and longish, but it nevertheless earns 5 stars for hilarity and audacity -- even (and even especially) today. In many ways, it's still the most authentic available depiction of the 1960s as I knew them, and the fact that it stands alone is a wonderment and a puzzlement to me. Now if I could just stop singing "Al-ways look on the bright si-ide of life ...whee hoo, wheehoowheehoo, WHEE hoo," maybe I could make some sense out of all we surely must have learned by now since this movie was made
Jetzt auch mal auf englisch gesehen... sehr schwer zu verstehen am Anfang, aber man hört sich nach ~20 Minuten hinein.
Wenn ich deutsche Synchro und die Originalfassung vergleiche, ist die deutsche Synchro richtig richtig gut, übersetzt einige Sachen etwas freier, so dass die Witze auch sehr gut funktionieren. D.h. man kann ohne Schmerzen die deutsche Fassung gucken, wenn man beim englischen nicht hinterher kommt.
Zum Film selber: Kultfilm. Muss man gesehen haben. Sollte klar sein, oder? :)
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
So here was my initial impressions for my 2/5 rating review.
I'm truly baffled as to how I could enjoy Holy Grail so much and not have loved this one as well. My fallback, or cop-out really, is that comedy is subjective. This is a movie without an interesting story or sympathetic and endearing characters, so it really is all about the skits and comedy here and I'm sad to say that I didn't find myself laughing often. My favorite parts were the messiah scenes and the old guy in the jail but other than that it was a rather dull affair for me honestly.
I don't mean to imply it was terribly bad or offensively unfunny, I actually…
Just as good as the Holy Grail despite being odd in some bits. With classic moments throughout and an ending melody to remember and cherish. If you don't feel good after watching this then you are hopelessly depressed and a Robin Williams is the only way out of your misery.
Pin-sharp parody, hilarious heresy, endless quotability; Monty Python's Life of Brian is the pinnacle of the comedy troupe's work and a glorious filmic experience.
The best Biblical epic(ish) ever made.
It's Monty Python, so you know it will be an enjoyable experience.
