critics consensus

A cult classic as gut-bustingly hilarious as it is blithely ridiculous, Monty Python and the Holy Grail has lost none of its exceedingly silly charm. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

A comedic send-up of the grim circumstances of the Middle Ages as told through the story of King Arthur and framed by a modern-day murder investigation. When the mythical king of the Britons leads his knights on a quest for the Holy Grail, they face a wide array of horrors, including a persistent Black Knight, a three-headed giant, a cadre of shrubbery-challenged knights, the perilous Castle Anthrax, a killer rabbit, a house of virgins, and a handful of rude Frenchmen.

Critic Reviews for Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Audience Reviews for Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  • Jun 10, 2015
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a prevailing oddball comedy that continues to be viewed as a cult classic. Its dynamic cast and gag-filled narrative would delight any moviegoer and the film resonates as one of the more memorable comedies to this day because of it. 4/5

    The only other Python I've seen is The Meaning of Life, which I'd actually give the same rating, despite Holy Grail being three times as aclaimed. Holy Grail is one of the few films that caught my attention at the opening credits, yet lost it during a patch in the middle. None the less tons of funny scenes, especially up to the part before the band went their own ways. "Tis but a scratch" had me dying, need to watch Life of Brian now.

    A charming and hilarious cult, The Holy Grail is certally one of the most funniest films that I ever saw. This first full length by the british group Monty Python, it's a unique odyssey by the medieval time with surrealist humor and remarkable characters, scenes and lines. In the edge from absurd and silliness, Monty Python and The Holy Grail gonna make the audience laugh from the opening titles until the last scene.
