MONTY PYTHON FILM FESTIVAL
  • And Now for Something Completely Different
    Runtime: 105 Minutes
    Starring: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones
    Director Ian MacNaughton leads John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam on a hysterical romp through pet shops, marriage counselor offices, and odd London streets and fields filled with singing lumberjacks, dead parrots, hungry babies, upper-class twits, people trying not to be seen, and old ladies on motorcycles, fighting off milkmen, bank robbers, crazy flashers, dirty forks, and killer jokes. The sketches have been re-created for the big screen, without the ever-present laugh track but still loaded with Gilliam's outrageously funny animation. As in the television show, the skits are linked together through clever animation as well as by characters in uniform (Graham Chapman, in this case) proclaiming, "I'm warning this film not to get silly again." Among Monty Python's favorite targets are the military, the police, the British government, the courts, Mao, Uncle Sam, and television reporters. As always, there are lots of men in drag. Even the closing credits are a riot. But watch out for that 16-ton weight....
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Runtime: 111 Minutes
    Starring: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones
    After a chance meeting with a rather irate God, King Arthur and his Knights of The Round Table are set the sacred task of retrieving the all powerful Holy Grail. On their long quest they encounter a number of terrifying hazards... the taunts of the abusive French Knight, disgruntled peasants, the Knights who say ‘Ni’ and the deadly rabbit with the big pointy teeth.
  • Life of Brian
    Runtime: 94 Minutes
    Starring: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones
    Brian Cohen is an average young Jewish man, but through a series of ridiculous events, he gains a reputation as the Messiah. When he's not dodging his followers or being scolded by his shrill mother, the hapless Brian has to contend with the pompous Pontius Pilate and acronym-obsessed members of a separatist movement. Rife with Monty Python's signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian's life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.
  • The Meaning of Life
    Runtime: 109 Minutes
    Starring: Terry Gilliam, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones
    Life's questions are 'answered' in a series of outrageous vignettes, beginning with a staid London insurance company which transforms before our eyes into a pirate ship. Then there's the National Health doctors who try to claim a healthy liver from a still-living donor. The world's most voracious glutton brings the art of vomiting to new heights before his spectacular demise.
