1979 M Contains adult themes.

See the movie that's controversial, sacrilegious, and blasphemous. But if that's not playing, see The Life of Brian.

You could say this is one of the greatest comedies ever, but we said it first! Life Of Brian is all about (and here's the big surprise) the Life Of Brian, who was born in a Bethlehem manger next door to Jesus. It's written and performed by the Monty Python lads, so you know what you're in for - if you don't put this DVD down and get out while it's safe. Featuring John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, and the incomparable Graham Chapman as Brian himself.

A bit of a classic, so still had a laugh after not seeing for so many years.

Love the catchy song at the end.

A bit dated, but amusing in parts. The highlight is the documentary of the Pythons made at the time of making the film (1979). Very interesting and it is worth hiring the dvd just for this.

It was fun to revisit this film so many years after watching it when it was first released. It is still funny and risky but possibly a bit dated now, of course. Still worth a look.

Really funny classic Python film. Not their best film but still something that everybody should make sure they see at least once in their lifetime. "He's not the Messiah; he's just a very naughty boy."

Not as good as "the Meaning of life". Not a good idea to try and spread one gag into a feature length funny.

I'd alway's heard about the Monty Python movies etc and have finally got around to seeing one of them. I loved the humour, very clever minds or silly ones could only be the ones who could write this movie.
