Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Not all that different, though, for British enthusiasts of Monty Python's comic madness, as this is a recycling of some of the team's funniest BBC TV sketches. Their first cinematic outing was really aimed at American innocents, hitherto ignorant of such classic items as the "Upper Class Twit of the Year Race" and "Hell's Grannies", with John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam and co giving vent to a wholly superior form of surrealism. The Americans took it all to their hearts, bless 'em. Perhaps they thought that the "Townswomen's Guild Reconstruction of Pearl Harbor" was for real.
