Monty Python and The Holy Grail (1975)


Written and Starring Monty Python

Directed by Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones

As you watch this movie the silliness gets to you and makes you chuckle. As you continue you start to appreciate the Monty Python crew for begin able to conjure up many other plots underneath the main plot and scenes with lines that are memorable and interesting to watch. This is truly one of the best comedy films to see.

Never been a fan of parody of any kind. The silliness does nothing for me and I never get to enjoy myself, I get the jokes just never understand why they are supposed to be funny. That said, I have to admit I have stumbled on good ones, like a needle in a haystack. For this reason I never sat through anything done by the Monty Python comedy group, and stay away from any movie about parody.
I decided today to see this after a long delay and I have to admit This British comedy group know their onions. This here Holy Grail has been tagged as their best film and it is seen as one of the best comedy movies you should see.

Monty Python and The Holy Grail is the parodying of the legend of King Arthur's quest for The Holy Grail. The comedy group of Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin wrote and performed in various roles in this movie. With Gilliam and Jones stepping in to direct.
The movie plot follows King Arthur and in 932 AD, Arthur and his squire, Patsy are traveling through Britain searching for men to join the Knights of the Round Table.

This was a daunting task, but he managed to recruit Sir Bedevere the Wise, Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Galahad the Pure, Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot, and Sir Not-Appearing-in-this-Film. On their way to Camelot or changing their mind to go there because Arthur decides it is "a silly place" God speaks to them.
God gave Arthur the task of finding the Holy Grail. A task he took on and he and his Knights went in different directions in search of it.
The movie shows their adventures and many things they encounter as they join back together to get the Holy Grail.

The movie was both a critical and commercial success. I feel bad that I never sat through this movie before, it is a very good parody and comedy film to see anytime.
