to think this must be one of the funniest films ever made.

YANBU! I would go so far as to say it is the funniest. Can't think of any other that comes close.

YADNBU, complete genius, brilliant film smile

have seen it before, but went to block busters today and they had Life of Brian and the Holy Grail for sale for £7. Just finished watching LoB, hilarious.

Well thats it isn't it? I was sixteen when it came out and remember the fuss it caused. How could anyone really take it seriously, religious or not?

AuraofDora Sat 22-Sep-12 20:08:42

it's quite inspirational and one of my favourite films
it was banned at my school film club at the time so of course we all had to see it!
what have the Romans censors Romans ever done for us, eh!! smile

fuck off...we're the People's Front of Judea!

Love it! I remember seeing the documentary about them filming it in Tunisia before I'd even seen the film, back in 1978 or 1979. That was when I properly fell in love with Michael Palin. I was 12. smile

YABU Holy Grail was much better!

Jux Sat 22-Sep-12 20:17:48

Our county council - note, NOT the Church - banned it, so we had to go up to London to see it.

I like Judith's massive, retro hairy bush. grin

Euphemia Sat 22-Sep-12 20:18:36

I was a total Holy Grail geek when I was a student. I could recite the whole film, tell you every character Michael Palin each Python played, and all manner of details.

Absolute genius.

maras2 Sat 22-Sep-12 20:19:32

Good Catholic girl me but can lip sinc the entire movie.I only play it on high days and holidays,and have dispensation from my parish priest as he loves it too.' Half a dinari for my life story ???? '

Isn't it funny, thinking back, how people responded to it?

ProudNeathGirl Sat 22-Sep-12 20:19:47

I had to go to Cardiff to see it.

AlmostAGoldHipster Sat 22-Sep-12 20:20:33

Yup, it's the funniest film EVER! <gavel>

Euphemia Sat 22-Sep-12 20:21:14

I had to go from Stourbridge to Wolverhampton to see it - it felt like we (me, my dad and the boy from up the road!) were doing something so radical! For a brief monent I knew how the anti-Vietnam War protesters felt. grin

Meglet Sat 22-Sep-12 20:24:07

Yes, I snurk all the way through it.

Did anyone else catch 'Holy Flying Circus' on BB4(?) last year. That was genius.
