Monty Python And The Holy Grail - 40th Anniversary Trailer


The comedians behind Monty Python have turned into household names and The Holy Grail is potentially their most loved piece. Having been commissioned by the BBC in 1969 Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Graham Chapman began shooting scenes for a sketch show under the name of Monty Python's Flying Circus. The 45 episodes were full of surreal comedy which each and every one soon became cult classics.

A Liar's Autobiography Trailer


The 'Monty Python' group are returning to our screens once more with 'A Liar's Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman'. It is not a Monty Python sketch, merely the uncensored screen product of Chapman's 1980 nonsensical autobiography that has been re-published three times so far. It includes the voices of the Pythons playing themselves and various characters as well as Chapman himself who conveniently recorded himself reading the book prior to his death in 1989. A number of special guests also make voice appearances as characters in the film.

'A Liar's Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman' is a bizarre animated comedy that has been directed by documentary masterminds Bill Jones and Ben Timlett ('Monty Python: Almost the Truth - Lawyers Cut') and Jeff Simpson ('The Strictly Come Dancing Story'). The writing is credited to Graham Chapman and David Sherlock who co-wrote the fictional autobiography, but alongside extracts from the audio-book are various soundbites from other Monty Python TV appearances and pays tribute to his untimely death. It is due to his cinemas everywhere from February 8th 2013 with a DVD and Blu-Ray release date of February 18th. It is also available on demand from February 11th.

Starring: Graham Chapman, Philip Bulcock, John Cleese, Carol Cleveland, Cameron Diaz, Margarita Doyle, Terry Gilliam, Andre Jacquemin, Terry Jones & Michael Palin

Monty Python And The Holy Grail Review


Essential
Python is... and always has been... laugh out loud funny. But this is the kind of thing that everyone says. I am at a sort of a quandary as to what to write to someone who has never seen Python. Part of the job is to attempt to describe a movie to someone who has never heard of it or seen it, and with Python films this is probably the hardest part of the job. One of the Python movies, And Now For Something Completely Different, basically expresses the essence of their entire career in a single phrase. Python is completely different. Even years later, when people have tried to be Pythonesque, Python is still something completely different.

They are so different that only one film has accomplished the kind of humor since, and that is Being John Malkovich. BJM, however, has a tragic side to it that makes it completely different from Python films. So, in the end, Python is still completely different.

Monty Python's Meaning Of Life Review


Very Good
Don't pay too much attention or you may start to feel there's no meaning to it after all. A series of some of Python's most disgusting and raunchy vignettes -- from human butchery to a grotesquely obese man who explodes after his final nightly gorge -- the film purports to tell us about, obviously, the meaning of life. While a few moments are genuinely funny and the movie's musical numbers are quite memorable, most of the film is hit-and-miss. If you're Python-obsessed (like me), you'll find enough to overlook the flaws, but casual fans need not apply.
