Those six pandemonium-mad Pythons are back with their craziest adventure ever! John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin have returned to explain 'The Meaning of Life'. These naughty Pythons offer the usual tasteful sketches involving favourite bodily parts and functions, the wonders of war, the miracle of birth and a special preview of what s waiting for us in Heaven. Nothing is too sacred for the probing Python crew. After seeing them in action, you'll never look at life in quite the same way again!
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.

- The Meaning of Life review by CP Customer
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.
