Holy Grail suffers from the same syndrome that afflicts many of these restored classics: It is better remembered than actually seen.
November 2, 2001
While it has its moments of classic hilarity, they aren't enough to encourage me to swap Python quotes over email during afternoon office boredom.

Python's delightful and, on the whole, consistent reductio ad absurdum of the Grail legend.
October 7, 2006
It's still one of the funniest, silliest and all-out strangest films you'll ever see. Now go away, or I shall taunt you a second time.

October 12, 2001
The funniest movie of 1975 and probably the silliest movie ever made.
October 30, 2002
...what is there to say about the film, other than it is extremely silly and probably one of the four or five funniest movies of all time?

The film itself is of course genius; wonderfully funny; a classic. The new Special Edition DVD is a Pythonite's fondest wish.

August 2, 2001
Not their best, but it holds up surprisingly well.
December 2, 2015
A fresh look at the ultimate mock epic, after the Python method has been assimilated into the cultural DNA, reveals the subversive spirit of this bloody and cynical Arthurian deconstruction.

September 21, 2001
Really smart people improvising really silly gags and bits, most of which work, some of which don't.
October 13, 2015
So unnecessarily gorgeous, there are moments where it feels like Tarkovsky with drag and farting.

July 20, 2001
Funnier the first time you see it than it will ever be again, with some inspired gags and a lot of dry stretches.

Terribly exciting and clever, and while its sharpness has been considerably blunted through time, you can still tell where it once was.

August 12, 2006
I laughed so hard I thought I would stop breathing.
July 10, 2007
Troupe members Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones helmed this feature, bringing to it a visual style that is both cinematic and outrageously surreal.
April 29, 2009
This has to be one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

March 18, 2002
Overall, this is a silly romp through some of the best legends medieval Britain has to offer, intercut with some fabulously surreal animation.

Monty Python's Flying Circus, the British comedy group which gained fame via BBC-TV, send-up Arthurian legend, performed in whimsical fashion with Graham Chapman an effective straight man as King Arthur.
