Rated TBC by the BBFC


Collection of three feature-length comedies from the Monty Python troupe. 'And Now for Something Completely Different' (1971) is an anthology of sketches from the first two seasons of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus'. The sketches include 'Say No More, Nudge, Nudge', 'Hell's Grannies' and 'The Dead Parrot'. In 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' (1975), King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his trusty knights fearlessly travel the length and breadth of the country in search of the mythical Holy Grail. On their way they have to deal with the sarcastic taunts of the French guard (John Cleese), the Knights who say 'NI!' and their leader (Michael Palin), Tim the Enchanter (Cleese) and the terrifying Cave of Caerbannog. 'Life of Brian' (1979), set during Biblical times, tells the story of Brian (Chapman), an accidental messiah whose life runs in eerie parallel to that of Jesus Christ. His misadventures come to the attention of Pontius Pilate (Palin), crucifixion inevitably comes and is followed by the message, delivered in song, to 'Always Look On the Bright Side of Life'.
