"The Meaning of Life" is a comedy/satire by critically acclaimed British comedy group Monty Python. While being entertaining and at some points really funny, it is their weakest film. At some points, the Pythons lose themselves in bad taste jokes (not yet bad). Still, there are several funny and hilarious moments, such as both war scenes or the infamous surreal "Where is the Fish?" skit. It is certainly no waste of time.
The movie has some strong violent moments, such as a man's liver being cut out while he is still alive (The body is off-screen, you see lots of blood splatter and the organs being taken out, you hear the man scream in pain). It is meant to be comical, but it still can be quite disturbing to some.
In a war sequence, severed limbs, heads and bloody stumps are shown, but this time, the violence is clearly comical.
A man literally explodes (the content of his stomach bursts everywhere, you see extremely fake bones and a heart, but it is ridiculously unrealistic).
Some other violence that is not that graphic.
There are sexual scenes, a song is sung entitled "Every Sperm is Sacred", which includes verses sung by children or nuns.
A teacher has sex with his wife in front of the class (nothing explicit shown, only their heads). A scene in which topless female nudity is shown. Frequent sexual talk, which can be graphic.
There are some uses if the f-word.
Mainly for its violence, this movie should be watched by older teens and adults only.
