Parson's Egg - The Meaning of Life review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Some sketches have me in tears after 10 times of watching them. Mr Creosote, the grim reaper, sex education and every sperm is sacred for me will never be bettered for silliness. Some sketches are limp and were never funny. 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 and the direction worse but the material good fun and very silly. If however you are not new to Python you don't need a review. The awesome silliness is rarely surpassed especially now the BBC have destroyed Spike Milligan's output.

Classic Python - The Meaning of Life review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Do not look at this film if you are offended by nudity, sex senes and if you get upset about jokes against the church. But if you like Monty Python then go for it. This disc has a bonus short film on it called The Crimson Pirate, very funny.
