Movie Info

The highlights of two benefit concerts staged in support of Amnesty International are collected in this British performance film, which features ample helpings of both music and comedy. The members of the Monty Python comedy troupe serve as headliners, performing live variations on some of their most famous sketches. Additional humor is provided by such luminaries as Peter Cook, while the musical segments include performances by Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, and Sting, amongst others. While all of the performers deliver the goods, the film's overall effectiveness is unfortunately limited by the purely functional direction and often poor image quality. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

Worth it for the quiz show sketch with Graham Chapman dressed as a schoolgirl who thinks the answer to every question is "Baghdad!"

Audience Reviews for The Secret Policeman's Other Ball

I think this is the best ever performance of "I don't like Mondays". The musical side of this alone is worth watching it for.
