October 13, 2015
So unnecessarily gorgeous, there are moments where it feels like Tarkovsky with drag and farting.

Here is Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which is neither as sparkling as it is said to be nor as bad as it seems to be at the start. But it's pretty good.

Grail is as funny as a movie can get, but it is also a tough-minded picture -- as outraged about the human propensity for violence as it is outrageous in its attack on that propensity.
March 29, 2011
Silly, sophomoric, and slapped together -- but would you want it any other way?
September 4, 2008
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.
June 24, 2006
Python's delightful and, on the whole, consistent reductio ad absurdum of the Grail legend.
May 9, 2005
A marvelously particular kind of lunatic endeavor.
July 19, 2003
Holy Grail suffers from the same syndrome that afflicts many of these restored classics: It is better remembered than actually seen.
August 15, 2002
For all its shenanigans, Monty Python and the Holy Grail has a sense of humor that is intellectual, even academic, at heart.
November 16, 2001
Ah, bless the Pythons, back after 26 years to get medieval all over again on the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the round table.
October 12, 2001
The funniest movie of 1975 and probably the silliest movie ever made.
September 21, 2001
Really smart people improvising really silly gags and bits, most of which work, some of which don't.
September 21, 2001
Has been so quoted and requoted that the scenes and words feel tattooed onto the psychic membrane.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail still stands as a gloriously silly and twisted send-up.

September 6, 2001
Brimming over with unforgettable gags and baroquely nonsensical insults.
August 3, 2001
The new Holy Grail is no revelation, just hilarious confirmation that the old days were in fact better.
June 19, 2001
An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.
