If you didn't see this at an impressionable age (say 12-20), I'm not sure if you watch this with anything like objectivity now. It's a movie that has almost been ruined by obsessive fans who quote it endlessly. That said, it holds up very well, making the most of its limited budget and cast (the Pythons each play many characters) and featuring the gang's patented mix of high-brow (Arthurian references) and low-brow comedy (fart jokes and flying cows), which few other films have matched. I prefer "Life of Brian," but this is still great fun, as well as one of the first films to depict the Middle Ages as dirty, bloody and brutal. This 2-disc edition has more special features than you may need.

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.

THE FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER!!!!! No matter how many times you see it, it's still hilarious. My favourite scene was The Black Knight scene! 5 stars!

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

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.

Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of alderberry.

Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.

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