    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. An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.
  4. What we have here is an historical document of inestimable value, describing in no uncertain terms the terrible and beautiful times before AIDS.

    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.

    We all know it, we all love it, and we all quote it. The Holy Grail is still arguably one of the greatest comedies of all time and there is a good reason for that. Each scene plays out hilariously well timed, such as the Black Knight duel, the trojan bunny, the Keeper of the Bridge of Death, every scene is just funny punchline upon funny punchline, and each one hits a bulls-eye.

    One of the funniest and smartest comedies ever made. Judging this movie by its own merits, i'd give it an 8 or 9, but it deserves no less than 10, simply because of its impact on future movies and TV shows.

    Seeing that this was released in 1975, it must have influenced the creators of comedy classics like Airplane!, TV phenomenons like Family Guy, and even my current TV show Community has the same style of comedy.

    These creations probably wouldn't be possible if not for the genius of the people behind this film.
