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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Mostly dead-on and characteristically Pythonesque.
| Original Score: 4/5
