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 the one I keep going back to 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 for a prophet & becomes…
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.
Well, at least now I can tell people that I've tried. Silly people doing silly things, it's really not for me. A film made from a few sketches here and there is just too messy for my taste. I know, I know. I must be fun at parties. Yeah, I guess Life of Brian has the merit of being original, and brave enough to parody such a controversial subject. The film also does not resort to penis and fart jokes which seems to be an obsession of modern comedies. For that, I truly think the Monty Python series deserves all the praise it got.
2 stars for incontinentia buttocks. Off I go to bed now, had been struggling to stay awake through this.
How shall we fuck off, O Lord?
Almost 40 years later and it's as relevant today as it ever was. It's not just that it's hysterically funny in typical Monty Python fashion, but probably has a more intelligent view on religion than most people. Then again maybe it's just blasphemous... but if you're going to hell you might as well be entertained on your way there.
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…
Monty Python's Life of Brian is really funny. It's packed with laughs from start to finish. But it also could be seen as commentary on how people will blindly follow a leader without thinking.
Everyone knows that the best part of this film is "The Bright Side". It's both cynical and positive and it gets stuck in your head fast.
Life of Brian is everything we expect from Monty Python, only multiplied.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is my favourite thing Monty Python have done, maybe because it's their most cohesive film, following one main character, without animation and has a really clever set-up and still has their random, frenetic sensibility to the jokes and characters.
Six guys (although Terry Gilliam doesn't feature as much) playing a bunch of characters each with minimal make-up or costume, in some very sketch-like scenes that are mostly conducive to the main story. It feels like a movie and despite the legendary budget issues, filming on location in Tunisia makes it look really cinematic.
All of that coupled with a relentless onslaught of jokes and characters, even just looks that makes it so watchable. Like how The Simpson's best moment…
The big laughs are truly hilarious, though they don't hit quite as often as you'd expect. That said, Life of Brian is still thoroughly entertaining from start to finish!
blackface in the first five minutes and i dunno what anyone was saying but then it ended okay
The famous Latin lesson scene alone makes this film worth watching.
"He's not the messiah he's a very naughty boy".
