Different - Monty Python and the Holy Grail review by JD

Spoiler Alert
26/11/2015

If you are new to Python they were revolutionary satirical 40 years ago. Their mad, innovative style was ground breaking. Now, seen after so much comedy revolution, they are dated, the acting is poor, the direction worse, the ending just irritating but the material often good fun and very silly. If however you are not new to Python you are probably hoping to watch this for the 3rd time and you don't need a review. The awesome silliness is rarely surpassed especially now the BBC have destroyed Spike Milligan's output. In my opinion the best sketch is the guard who continues to fight despite the increasing loss of limbs.

Intermittently funny - Monty Python and the Holy Grail review by CW

Spoiler Alert
14/03/2019

Sometimes laugh out loud funny, sometimes a bit of a yawn. Still, there are moments - jokes and phrases- that we use today without perhaps recognising the source. Glad to have seen it again after all these years but would not watch again. Moments of brilliance.
