Still funny after all these years. Hadn't seen it since the 70s so enjoyed it fully again.

One of the all time comedy classics- and certainly one of the best films the Pythons made in their career.

*French Soldier movie-quote*) - "I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal-trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster. Your father smelt like elderberries!"

Even though 1975's "The Holy Grail" was certainly far from being one of the best satires that the Monty Python comedy troupe ever had to offer - It definitely did feature some truly priceless moments of genuine, gut-splitting humour. And, with that, I think it at least deserves a 3-star rating.

Set in England (where else?) in the year 932 AD - This goofy, medieval spoof tells the twisted tale of Arthur (King of the Britons) and the Knights of the Round Table as they join forces and head off in a gallant quest, searching for (what else?) the Holy Grail.

Two of my all-time favourite scenes in this silly, over-the-top comedy are - "Burn the Witch" and the hilarious encounter with "The Black Knight".

Hilarious film by the Monty Python brigade about the exploits of King Arthur on his quest for the Holy Grail. Still stands up today.

Judging by today's standard, this film is over-rated. Some scenes are just silly and, despite the fact I grew up with this group, delivered only low-quality humour. Disappointing for me.

As far as British comedies go, it doesn't get much better than this. Beware the beast of Aaarrrrgh in the Cave of Caerbannog!

The best of Monty Python. With killer rabbits, knights that say "NI!", the French, shrubbery, flesh wounds and elderberries, you can't go wrong!

Ten years later, it's still one of my favourites.

Taunting French Guard: "...I unclog my nose in your direction, sons of a window-dresser! So, you think you could out-clever us French folk with your silly, knees-bent, running about, advancing behavior! I'll wave my private parts at your aunties you... cheesy leather, second-hand, electric donkey bottom biters!" King Arthur: "IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, WE DEMAND ENTRANCE TO THIS SACRED CASTLE!" Taunting French Guard: "No chance, English bed-wetting types! I burst my pimples at you and call your door-opening request a silly ting! You... tiny-brained wipers of other people's bottoms!"

When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England.

It seemed as though there was no escape then the illustrater had a heart attack and died ad they got away.

Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of alderberry.

Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.

Violence: Some kiling and limbs getting cut off, but the blood looks like juice.
