And Now for Something Completely Different: Monty Python's Flying Circus is regarded as a milestone in British Comedy. This, their first feature film, is an anthology of the funniest sketches from the legendary BBC Television series. Pick one of your favourites from among many, including the famous "Say No More, Nudge, Nudge" sequence, the Hell's Grannies and The Dead Parrot.
The Holy Grail (1974): Yoiks! Here be the Python's tale of good King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his knights as they quest for the Holy Grail. Watch as they face great odds and silly sods. See them wage battle against the fierce Killer Rabbit ("Run Away! Run Away!"), and, (oh, horrors!) see them confront the dreaded Knights Who Say "Ni!".
Oh, these be trying times. Can these good knights pass the test of valour and cut down yon tree with herring? Or will they blow themselves to smithereens with the Holy Hand Grenade? Courage, Lancelot! Onward, Galahad! A hysterical, historical tour-de-farce from Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones.
Monty Python Live At The Hollywood Bowl: Live, lewd and unleashed for the first time, the Pythons take on the legendary Hollywood Bowl in a sell out show that serves up some of their best known songs and sketches in addition to brand new material that never appeared in the Flying Circus TV series. Looking utterly resplendent with the aid of digitally remastered picture and sound, this raucously funny concert is a riot of Monty Python humour and an essential addition to any Python DVD collection.
The Life Of Brian (1979): You could say this is one of the greatest comedies ever, but the Monty Python team said it first! Life of Brian is all about (and here's the big surprise) the life of Brian, who was born in a Bethlehem manger next door to Jesus. Three wise men believe he is the messiah, but it becomes apparent that he is only Brian. It's written and performed by the Monty Python lads, so you know what you're in for; if you don't, put this disc down and go out while it's safe!
The Meaning Of Life (1983): Those six pandemonium-mad Pythons are back with their craziest adventure ever! These naughty lads 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. It's far-out, frank, and jolly good fun!
