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…
Very good, very funny
This was easily my favorite comedy as a teenager: no matter how many times I watched this, the routines never grew old, and the overall pacing and consistency always seemed so much better than the two other Monty Python features. Revisiting it today, there are certainly plenty of inspired jokes, but quite a few obvious clunkers in there too. And the weak lines are made worse by Terry Jones's staging and editing, which is too often static and clunky, with the camera lingering too long on terrible jokes and sophomoric mugging (mostly from Jones and Idle), often in close-ups that draw unnecessary attention to these moments.
The funniest and most important comedy of all time.
Although I wish I was more well versed with religious texts and stories that this movie tears apart so hilariously, it proved to be a very entertaining time featuring every staple of Monty Python's humor: the satiric portrayal featuring toilet humor, absurdist set pieces, a small amount of self aware lampshading with just enough of a moral to top it all off and give the viewer some good questions to ask themselves.
Alright, but apart from the Flying Circus, Holy Grail, Meaning of Life, the cinematic careers of John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin, and their profound influence on generations of world comedy, what have the Pythons ever done for us?
Probably my favorite Monty Python movie
