A must see for Python disciples, this extensively produced 3D string of animations will run hot and cold with the general public.

What may surprise all but the most dedicated Python fan is the self-deprecating candor and bittersweet whimsy with which Chapman's memoir lays out his most private joys, hang-ups, foibles and demons.
November 16, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

A must-see for any Python fan, full of insights into the peculiar alchemy that gave us silly walks, argument rentals and football-playing philosophers.

'A Liar's Autobiography' is a noble attempt, but a painful sit, and I can't recommend it to anyone but the most obsessive of Python fanatics, and even for them, it might be tough to take.

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

Like the Python movies, it is is made up of skit-like segments, but it only briefly reaches anywhere near their level of sublime comic anarchy.

November 8, 2012
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?"

A Liar's Autobiography is flawed and enigmatic, but ultimately entertaining. Much like its subject.
