Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

0 Love It
The Python swansong, a nostalgic return to the sketch format of the original TV shows, garnished with the 'explicit' sex and violence jokes that are deemed necessary to get bums on seats in cinemas in these depraved times. This is the one with the exploding Mr Creosote, the parody of Zulu, and the sketch about organ-snatching from live donors. The high point comes early, when a Catholic family in Yorkshire burst into song with 'Every Sperm Is Sacred'.

Brilliant from The Pythons, a real treat. Some scetches may go on too long for some (especially the opening) but there are some genius moments, including Mr Creosote, the penis song and the liver extractors, not to mention Cleese as the school teacher and that rugby match. Oh, and the Salmon moose!!!!
