Sacrilegious fare for the Pythons in this film. The motley crew apply there socio-political commentary to the life of Jesus Christ. Difficult material to swallow if you are not a Monty Python or British humour fan. To me, this does not nearly stand up to Holy Grail, despite many others who would largely disagree with me. Religious satire is a sensitive topic and not as digestible as other themes they have tackled such as King Arthur, death, etc. Some classic scenes here are forever embedded in the lexicon of Pythonites everywhere.

First time I saw it, it was better, but it's still good :)

Partly a riff on the mythos of one little known desert prophet, and part riff on the multitude of film about said prophet, it has the feel of the class clown arguing with the homeroom teacher, and nearly is as Biblical. But mainly its just silly.

Life of Brian is a hilarious, offensive cult classic. This film has great acting, is constantly funny and there isn't a dull moment. The film is so quotable and entertaining I love it.

Brilliant tongue in cheek commentary on organised religion.

Silly, witty, bizarre, and timely all at the same time, "Life Of Brian" marks a relatively high point within Monty Python's impressive r comedic ap sheet.

There is some fun, but overall it is quite stupid.

Monty Python proved themselves as the kings of satirical comedy with this classic comedy gem.

If you were expecting another Holy Grail, life of Brian will come as a massive disappointment. One of their worst films,it is also one of the worst of all films. You would think with the amount of time they had between Holy Grail and life of Brian that monty python could come up with something worthwhile, but they must have used everything up making their bbc tv shows and holy grail.

Life of Brian has all that one would expect from a Monty Python production: satire, absurdity, ridiculousness, irreverence. Beyond that I found the sets to be surprisingly good and I also found the daring to touch on controversial topics to be refreshing in these uptight times.

This is how comedy is done, folks. Always look on the bright side of life.

It is a silly comedy, but it has some really deep critics to society.

A timeless classic, view after view you will still laugh at the same jokes the way you did the first time you watched it. considered one of the all time great comedies & when you see for yourself, you can see why.

From the geniuses behind the Holy Grail, is a controversial, fast paced comedy, Life of Brian. I personally loved the Holy Grail, but attempted not to draw any comparisons between it and this film, I'll just admit that Holy Grail was way funnier. The overall story is smart, but I found myself laughing less than I should have been. I thought the excess amount of characters were a bit unnecassary, but thats not to say the majority of them didn't produce pure humor, and the ending really lifts it up a notch. Monty Python produced this with high expectations weighing on their shoulders, and although more effort could have gone into the actual wit of the humor, Life of Brian still delivers a relatively cheery time for those who enjoy a crude comedy.
