Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different was first released in the US in 1973, but didn't really take off as a midnight-movie fixture until after the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV series began making the PBS rounds. Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam are the Pythonites in attendance, together with semiregulars Carol Cleveland and Connie Booth. The sketches presented include such classics as "The Lumberjack Song", "Hell's

A kind of insane logic seems to connect the sketches, if you look hard enough, but mostly the movie seems to exist in the present and be willing to try anything for a laugh.
Essential viewing for fans of Monty Python and British comedy, this film consists of some wonderful sketches, even though Terry Gilliam doesn't appear in them.
A collection of deliberately unlinked comedy sketches and animated filler, the film is a workable sampler of the group's humor.
Although the cast is brilliant and the material generally funny, the film fails to take advantage of the big-screen format.
Old-school fans will dig it, and Python newcomers will see what all the fuss is about.
Como toda antologia, tem momentos mais e menos inspirados, mas, de modo geral, impressiona por sua inventividade.
The first feature-length Monty Python film is a collection of some of their best bits from the show.
Monty Python's best known sketches reshot and compiled on film, with slight variations and occasional profanity. Great sketches, but a rather pointless exercise.
