    It's still the Holy Grail of crazy comedy.

    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.
  3. What we have here is an historical document of inestimable value, describing in no uncertain terms the terrible and beautiful times before AIDS.
  4. An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.
  5. Has a sense of humor that is intellectual, even academic, at heart.
  6. Reviewed by: Dave Kehr
    Silly, sophomoric, and slapped together, but would you want it any other way?
  7. Still stands as a gloriously silly and twisted send-up.
  8. Reviewed by: Staff (Not credited)
    Basically an excuse for set pieces, some amusing, others overdone.

    @eddy c "Nowadays just cant compete"?? Compete to what? 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.

    one of the best comidies ever. i was rolling on the floor and in tears from laughing so hard. the brilliance of this film is just uncanny . when you can make some thing funny like a guy following the knights and banging two cocconuts together to make the sound of horse galloping not really because they thought it was gona be funny as to they had no money to afford real horses just shows how much of brilliant theese guys are. so many funny moments in this film i couldnt even list them all. one of the few commodies ive seen more a few times and still laugh when i see it. . people will still be laughing on the floor in 50 years when seeing this.
