Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Who’s in it

John Cleese, Terry Gillam, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones

What was good

From the swallow and the coconut, to the black knight, down to the well educated peasants and the horny nuns, this movie is perfect in every sense, and is the perfect movie for any respectable parent to hate. Random song numbers, crude and silly animations, this movie is a classic and surpasses generational appreciation.

What sucked

Nothing. The cheesy special effects add to the movie like the flying cows, and the gushing blood from armored wounds, everything is in character with the outrageous british humor. The plot is a farce, and never completes, but we don’t care, we spend the whole movie wondering was bizarre thing will happen next.

Who should go see this

If you like Monty Python of course. This is their best movie, the most concise, the broadest appeal, and in my humble opinion the best jokes. I wouldn’t recommend this to parents of course, but most of my friends should see this, and love it. If you don’t, you just don’t know funny.
