A Liar's Autobiography - The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman Reviews

Ben Walters

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The varying tones give a patchy feel to the enterprise without adding up to anything as radical as the Pythons' own assault on TV conventions. A cordial tribute to a fascinating chap nonetheless.

The film's mostly for Python completists, of whom there are many, as well as for animation junkies who will groove on the grab bag of styles.

Apart from Chapman's dry observational tone and the others' silly voices, there's not much here to touch Python fans accustomed to soaring in a higher stratosphere of humour.

It's a very naughty tome, with many dangling bits.

It's like watching Yellow Submarine laid over a celebrity-therapy episode of Dr. Phil.

For Python cultists and completists only.

It's a colorful patchwork of family high and low points, schoolboy days, professional triumphs and assorted epiphanies (including sex with women followed by sex with men).

It's an odd little trip, but if it weren't, one would have to ask, "Well what's all this, then?"

Shockingly, little of this 3D cartoon is funny apart from Graham Chapman's own humorous narration.

The movie has enough weird-wild-ride brio to convince you that Chapman was indeed quite a character.

An unwieldy animated free-for-all (in 3D) featuring vocal contributions by four other Pythons that's sadly lacking in both the comedy and tragedy of Chapman's life.

A 3D multistyle animated tribute to late Monty Python member Graham Chapman that falls short as biography but honors the spirit of the beloved British comedy troupe.

A coda shifts to video footage of Cleese's irreverent eulogy; you wish the whole film could have been as slyly somber.
