However, by refilming the sketches for a cinematic format, with new editing, camerawork, close-ups ... yet without the give-and-take energy of a live studio audience, what on TV was seat-of-the-pants fresh is here flat and overproduced.

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.

If you know this material, you know it well; if you don't, you're in for a bizarre surprise as these six gifted men -- in their youthful glory -- blend the surreal and the scatological, the high with the low, manufacturing oddly brilliant comedy.

Monty Python's best known sketches reshot and compiled on film, with slight variations and occasional profanity. Great sketches, but a rather pointless exercise.

Como toda antologia, tem momentos mais e menos inspirados, mas, de modo geral, impressiona por sua inventividade.

A collection of deliberately unlinked comedy sketches and animated filler, the film is a workable sampler of the group's humor.
