Makes Ben Hur look like an Epic

932 A.D. King Arthur persuades Sir Bedevere, Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Galahad the Pure, Sir Robin the not-Quite-So-Brave and Sir Not Appearing In This Film to join him in the fellowship of the Round Table; their first goal is Camelot, but God appears in the skies and directs them to seek the Holy Grail. At the foot of a French castle they suffer the sarcastic remarks of a French knight, who also bombards them with assorted animals. Before being slain by a rider on horseback, a Famous Historian informs us of the Round Table's decision to seek the Grail individually. Each knight undergoes various trials. Eventually all the knights team up and are led by Tim the Enchanter to the cave of Caerbanog, where they do battle with the Beast of Aaaargh; they then endeavour to cross the Bridge of Death (guarded by the Soothsayer), but only Arthur and Bedevere manage it successfully. Voices lead them to an enchanted boat, which carries them to the Castle of Aaaargh, resting place of the Holy Grail.

Still the funniest thing ever!!! This is one that will always be a classic due to the brilliance and humour of the Monty Python crew. You don't even need to be stoned to find this funny!

To be very funny, you first have to be very intelligent. This movie is filled with very clever ways of displaying humour. It comes across as being stupid, but is brilliant in its delivery. The acting... Read more

Its brilliance lies in its absurdity! Has it dated...?? Not at all, a real classic! The Python's ability to parady both themselves and English convention is unparralled. Enjoy!

This is a very amusing film in it's own very unique way. I enjoyed the way they expressed the stroy in such unconventional ways.

Great old English movie, the english humour does need the right frame of mind to get into but well worth a look.

Weird , whacky and great off beat humour. Best watched 2 or 3 times to pick up on all the 'bits' happening around the storyline.
