Some of the comedy is so sharp, contemporarily relevant or flat out absurd, it's as if the movie aimed to transcend its gag-reel structure and emerge as a deeply profound work of art. And it almost succeeds.

Almost as good as Holy Grail and that's saying something, a true comedy classic. Full of bad taste and downright blasphemous, I'm sure some will be deeply offended, everyone else will be deeply entertained.

While not as good as the previous film. Life of Brian stands on its own with great characters,jokes and commentary on religion.

It is such a great movie and one of the funniest you'll ever see.

Life of Brian manages to garner laughs at it?s social satire and WTF humor on religion

Cynically hilarious film. The Monty Python crew did it again bringing another interesting look at religion and empires.

The perfect Python Film. Intelligent and stupid. Realistically ridiculous.

A superior movie to the Holy Grail (1975), which was descent, but very low budget and a bit messy. Meanwhile, Life of Brian is much more compitent and much more deserving of it's classic status. Although a comedy movie, it actually has some heart and intelligence to it, and I liked the social satire about how society is just willing to just follow religion. I also find it amazing how Monty Python can concentrate, longly, on certain scenes, even if they're extremely silly. And Bigus Dickus just killed me. Recommended !!

Oh terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo and you don´t know why? Watch this movie and you will know.

Unfortunately overshadowed by "Holy Grail", and yet this film by the famous comedy group is more clever and less slapstick. It is overall better written and does not just feel like a bunch of skits loosely weaved together. One of the only python movies with a solid plot.

The JPF crack suicide squad doesn't fit, as all other scenes involving the rival faction were cut from what was initially a much longer film. But this is the only thing that bugs me about a movie that, on the whole, is sharp, clever, insightful, daring, and most importantly, absolutely bloody hilarious. Holy Grail probably has more laughs per minute, but this is, all things considered, the Pythons' best work.

Besides the quite on point satire about biblical interpretation & Eric Idle's rabble rousing Crucifix Song, this was a total dud that pales in comparison to the earlier pre-Cleese Holy Grail.

Absolutely hilarious!

Every moment is as brilliant as the whole.

Good film. But you have to bear in mind that it is old and outdated now so not as many laughs as you would think

Perhaps the most relevant comedy from Monty Python, but also the weakest for me. However, I love Monty Python so much that even their least good film is a 4 star. I still really like this movie and recommend it to any comedy fan, though if you're expecting the more surreal side of MP, you won't find too much of it here. It's actually pretty down to earth satire, which is totally fine. They do it very well.

Wow, this movie is hilarious, a real classic comedy.

Brian of Nazareth is an average guy who gets mistaken for the messiah. Quite a few funny parts to this one and plays to perhaps Python's greatest strength - poking fun at religion.
