First post. :-D C'mon Life of Brian! You can do it!

You don't vote for a messiah!

well, how do you *become* messiah, then? actually, i'm voting for meaning of life. because it never gets any attention or respect. and while it is overblown and a lot of it falls flat, it's still got some of the funniest scenes i've ever seen. it's worth it for "every sperm is scared" alone.
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
erm...that would be "sacred." not "scared." yeah. i can type. realli.

What did 'ee say? Blessed are the Cheesemakers?!

yeah, ok, so this movie was just a compilation of flying circus sketches, but still... and what about Live at the Hollywood Bowl? or is that also considered to be a cousin of Flying Circus?

either way, their movies, while they are very good, just don't live up to the standard they set with their TV shows. maybe I just have a short attention span...

I totally agree with you, I think Python works best in sketch format, sometimes dragging the joke out over the length of a film rather than the length of a sketch just kills the joke for me. Or maybe we both have really short attention spans.
nate... Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
Exactly! Every movie they made tended to draaaag. It's much better in sketch format.

Ooh! Ooh! How To Irritate People!
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
how to irritate people doesn't's not actually python. it's also not as funny as it should be. even with all the pythons who are in it.
It's a girl! Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
Yeah, "How to Irritate People" was a disappointment. I wanted to laugh, I really did, but it just wasn't funny.

I have never seen Monty Python. I still haven't figured out if he's a singer, actor, or playwright. The little knowledge I have of him is from people spouting inane references. Me=not a Python fan. now I know people will *really* egg my tent at FRFF :-)

Stace - Monty Python is a comedy troupe, from England. Came out in the 70's. You really need to see Holy Grail. Rent it. Trust me....
emilie is CRANKY · 18 years, 7 months ago
what about the sketches? what about the lumberjack song? huh? huh?
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
that's part of Flying Circus :-)
Joy- new picture! Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
mmmmmmmmm, flying circus.
bored, bored, bored.... · 18 years, 7 months ago
Ooh! This was a toughie. I LOVE Holy Grail, but I think overall Life of Brian is a better movie. But then again....Michael Palin as Galahad is *too* cute.....argh....nope, still gotta go with Life of Brian. The Holy Grail computer game is fun though - although I can't get past the killer rabbit *g*
elfy, teacher of many · 18 years, 7 months ago
um, friendly neighbourhood typo alert. :) OR is 'meaning of LIVE' a trick answer, hoping to confuse people into thinking it's some obscure reference?
It's a girl! · 18 years, 7 months ago
I'm glad Live At The Hollywood Bowl wasn't listed
as a choice, because I'd be really torn. It's all
good, really, but I prefer the shorter sketch format.
Of the feature films, though, I think Life Of Brian is
the best one.
mindy Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
Life at hollywood bowl is the best! "Your american beer is like making love in a canoe.... fucking close to water!" but, given the options, the tv show

NI!!!! Go away or I will taunt you a second time!

The other stuff though it is kind of great are
just movies. But Meaning Of Life is essential...
there is too much truth in it.
