Despite its obvious shortcomings, The Meaning of Life also happens to be devastatingly funny at times, hitting a few beats of silliness with traditional Python precision.

Mostly dead-on and characteristically Pythonesque.

Spotty and fitfully very funny. Lacks the structure of the other Python big screen films.
| Original Score: 3/5

Com sua irreverência habitual, o Monty Python cria um filme que diverte o espectador com seus enlouquecidos esquetes e seu humor sem concessões.
| Original Score: 5/5

Strictly for people with dark senses of humor, any Python film should be avoided by anyone that thinks Jay Leno is funny

A zany and outrageous comedy about the wrong-headedness of many serious people.

An okay comedy. More jokes fall flat than bring out a laugh.

The vomiting scene is one of the funniest moments ever filmed.

Python's curtain call, a random grab-bag of sketches ranging from the sublime to the forgettable to the appallingly hysterical. But always, the troupe's iconoclastic spirit shines through.
| Original Score: 4/5

Some of the troupe's finest moments ever are here.
| Original Score: 4/5

Most every scene in the film employs humor as its function, yet retains the offshoot depth associated with its philosophic ambition.
Scott Weinberg

Not the sextet's finest effort, but still drop-dead funny.
