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 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.
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.
Life of Twan trying to watch Life of Brian but can't hear it due to my dad talking and slagging it off all the way through.
"What about you? Do you find it... wisible... when I say the name... 'Biggus'... Dickus?"
No. Not really.
Not as funny as the previous Python movie, but makes up for it with its sharp religious satire.
Film # 28 of the "Scavenger Hunt # 6" Challenge
Task # 29: A film featuring a case of mistaken identity
The genius humor of Monty Python reached its highest point with “Life of Brian”. In the life of Jesus Christ the guys found the ideal story to mix with their humor. Their absurdist comedy from the TV series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” and the movie “The Holy Grail” got a worthy follow up with “Life of Brian”.
The central character is Brian, a man that is mistaken to be the Messiah. Played by Graham Chapman, who also portrayed the role of Biggus Dickus. John Cleese is a dominant revolutionary and centurion, Michael Palin as Pilate and Terry…
Five stars?! This calls for immediate discussion, you silly sods.
Typical Monty Python. A bit on the crude side, but right on the money. One must always look on the bright side of life.
Last time I saw this was on VHS. Long enough ago that I didn't mind seeing it again, and that there were new layers to appreciate things on. Some references, some visual gags. Also made me curious to learn stories about how the film was made.
it is not a big laugh, but still so smartly fun!
Quería ver solo los extras pero he vuelto a caer.
