Synopsis:
At last, for the first time ever (well, at least since the 30th anniversary!), the condensed history of Monty Python. It's not all parrots, grail, and brain. This is the in-depth and true (well, yes, admittedly the almost true) story as told straight from the mouths of John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, and thanks to incredible research and completely analog, undigitized archives, Graham Chapman. They are all here, the dead one, too! A cast of thousands (well, hundreds. Perhaps something more in the double digits) has been assembled. They didn't all make the cut, but rest assured they were all interviewed.
Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present the most complete, finely tuned, and well assembled "final word" on Python. Until the next time, at least. Please note that no lawyers survived the making of this film.

If you really want to know where Eric Idle was educated, how tall John Cleese is in stockinged feet and who met whom when, then this is music to the ears. It is interesting to non-Python fans only as a historical perspective on comedy. I am a fan, the sort who can quote chunks, and thought it was brilliant.
