    It does manage to convey a sense of the personalities of the members of the show and how they cooperated.
    Its a very concise and illuminating documentary for both the fans who know everything and those who have no facts only know the name of monty python, both will find it pleasant but neither will call it perfect.
    It does not try to explain how BIG python was that is probably the only

    An enjoyable 6 hours, no matter if you're a passing Python fan or a full fledged zealot. These guys have influenced comedy in so many ways.

    It is a treat, if not a revelation, for fans. This is very well plowed ground, after all. As for the as yet uninitiated, what they don’t find baffling they’ll likely find excessive.

    It is an excellent 40th-anniversary documentary.

    They say analyzing comedy kills it, but in this case, it's one revelation after another. Add rare footage of their early years, some non-Python TV appearances, tense on-set footage filmed during the making of their movies, and clips of their greatest hits, and you've got Monty nirvana.
