All of Monty Pythons best

Monty Pythons And Now For Something Completely Different is a collection of all of Monty pythons best skits. This stretches from the lumberjack skit to the stupid olympics. The film does have sequences of comic violence and course language but it is very mild. This comedy might bore out younger viewers but overall it is a great film.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Those who are already familiar with the sketches in their original form on the television series won't find anything substantially different here (ironic considering the title). This film really works best as an introduction for viewers who have had little to no prior experience with Monty Python. From here, one will likely be hooked and want to go back to the original series, unless they find the humor too absurd.

But even those who dislike what they get here should keep in mind Monty Python's lasting legacy in the more recent sketch comedy troupes that have followed in their footsteps, including The Kids in the Hall and Mr. Show.
