Movie Info

Included are parents irritating their children, old ladies irritating movie-goers in a theater, an overly subservient waiter, a car repairman denying obvious car trouble, a party guest hinting for a ride, airplane pilots playing practical jokes on their passengers, and a talk show host who doesn't stop talking.

  • Watching this television special is like encountering demos of early day Beatles... We can see where he'll be going, but he's not quite there yet.

    This is sort of a documentary or a "mockumentary"? The sketches remind me of Monty Python a lot. Cleese is really funny and this movie has some really good sketches, but I wished he could have put them together into a narrative story.

    A bit of pre-Pythonism from John Cleese and co shows the beginnings of the beloved formula, but it isn't quite there yet as most of the team are glaring in their absence. A few funny moments, but if you're expecting comic genius on the level of The Holy Grail or even And Now For Something Completely different, you'll be disappointed.
