  1. What we have here is an historical document of inestimable value, describing in no uncertain terms the terrible and beautiful times before AIDS.

    Nobody ever placed brilliance in the service of silliness quite the way the Python gang did. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is stuffed with both.

    It's still the Holy Grail of crazy comedy.
  4. 80
    Silly, sophomoric, and slapped together, but would you want it any other way?
  5. Has a sense of humor that is intellectual, even academic, at heart.
  6. Still stands as a gloriously silly and twisted send-up.
  7. 70
    Basically an excuse for set pieces, some amusing, others overdone.

Weed movies and toilet humor? This was completely new to the 1970's and still blows my mind 30 years after its inception. This was the beginning of many references and allusions comedic gold such as Family Guy and The Simpsons have based their work on, and still stands as an excellent classic by itself. I say must-see.

The actors have so much fun, the story is so witty and hilarious, the scenery is gorgeous, the animation is hilarious,etc. This film is the funniest film ever made and will always be the funniest movie ever made. The Knights who say 'Ni' agree 'IT' (oh that is a bad word) will be a hit for decades. Classic hilarious movie. Oh did I mention, "IT" is hilarious? Expand

    The British comic masters at their finest. Never outstays its welcome, and every part bound lovingly into a coherent whole. Also has the bestThe British comic masters at their finest. Never outstays its welcome, and every part bound lovingly into a coherent whole. Also has the best amount and usage of Terry Gilliam's animation, in comparison with their three other films. Expand
