Movie Info

A fabulously entertaining 90-minute comic oratorio by Eric Idle and John Du Prez (creators of "Spamalot") inspired by "Monty Python's Life Of Brian" filmed at its only European performance at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2009 to celebrate 40 years of Monty Python. This hilarious take on the Messiah features the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Choir, a host of superb soloists in the lead roles including Rosalind Plowright and Eric Idle, with Michael Palin as Mrs Betty Parkinson and special guest appearances from Pythons Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam. And of course three sheep! Like Handel only funnier.

It's a better as a concept than a show, but Python fans will enjoy anyway.

The very concept of turning Life of Brian, itself a filmic spoof of Biblical epics, into a spoof of Handel's Messiah is funny, and the name--riffing on one of Life of Brian's most famous lines--is genius. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy)

Of course we love the songs and it is great to see the Pythons in action but compared to the film LIfe of Brian, this ends up being a bit of a bore.

Great for nostalgia but probably sounded better in their heads. Full review later.
