MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL

comment
Join King Arthur and the Knights of Camelot on their fruitless but hilarious search for the Holy Grail in Monty Python's 1974 cult hit, re-released in a new print. (Pythons Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones co-directed.) From the demented opening credits (in pidgin Swedish, and with an earnest indebtedness to a certain moose) through numerous sketches, one-liners, and delicious jabs at medieval history and its heroes of legend, past two unforgettable rabbits, and right through lovely scenery to an unexpected conclusion, the endlessly quotable Holy Grail remains the Python gang's funniest feature.
