I watched the extra version with the subtitles from Shakespeare's King Henry - act two, and it is uncanny how the scrip overlaps the movies dialogue. This is very reminiscent of the overlap synchronization of Pinks Floyds 'Dark Side of the Moon' and "The Wizard of Oz'. This is ironically overlapping the financing of the movie, which was provided by the likes of Pink Floyd, maybe even Toto

Funny and fun movie to watch but personally I thought the ending was terrible

Demented, twisted, gut-busting comedy from the six sickos. I think my favorite sequence(s) would be John Cleese's taunting French Guard. Then the 'dead collector'. Then the Black Knight... Ah hell, the whole thing is hysterical.

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST MOVIE I'VE EVER WATCHED!

This movie is very out there you might even be confused of their humor because this movie is odd in almost every way from the chicken to the falling down a bridge

Violence: Some kiling and limbs getting cut off, but the blood looks like juice.

Taunting French Guard: "...I unclog my nose in your direction, sons of a window-dresser! So, you think you could out-clever us French folk with your silly, knees-bent, running about, advancing behavior! I'll wave my private parts at your aunties you... cheesy leather, second-hand, electric donkey bottom biters!" King Arthur: "IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, WE DEMAND ENTRANCE TO THIS SACRED CASTLE!" Taunting French Guard: "No chance, English bed-wetting types! I burst my pimples at you and call your door-opening request a silly ting! You... tiny-brained wipers of other people's bottoms!"

When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England.
