Monty Python's 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.
I am NOT the Messiah!
I say you are Lord, and I should know. I've followed a few
Now I know why my dad (who's English) talks like he does when pretending to be a lady.
¿Se puede saber por qué razón no he tenido antes el placer de contemplar esta obra de arte del mundo del cine y el humor? Y eso que ya había visto parte de la filmografía de los Monty Python.
Brillante, ingeniosa y divertida. Una película que da como resultado un ligero dolor facial a causa de las miles y miles de carcajadas que no podrás evitar. Mis cinco estrellas.
My personal favourite of the Monty Python movies. The religious satire is equal parts brilliant and daring. A comedic feat that couldn't be accomplished by any else
Insane and very funny. So many great jokes and great lines in it. So silly that this movie got into so much trouble. The put with the spaceship is truly one of the most insane moments in movie history. Truly a very funny movie. In today's world more then ever we need to look on the bright side of life.
Is it me or was the Boring Prophet making a lot of sense.
Well, you can watch it over and over again and laugh about the same scenes after 20+ years.. but that are maybe 5 or 6. All the other jokes have been made far to often...
I feel like i'm the only one that thinks this is better than Holy Grail.
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
The entire Criterion collection organized by spine number.
I don't know why I did this.
