After being convulsed in hysterics while viewing The Holy Grail and The Life of Brian, I had great expectations for this film. Unfortunately, it rather let me down. While the production values and musical numbers are well-done, only about one fiftieth of the film even made me chuckle; the whole thing was just blah. The only scene that really made me laugh was when John Cleese was teaching a sexual education class and gave his students a very realistic lesson... other viewers know what I mean.
I didn't hate it, but this is definitely their worst effort and a very bad starting point if you're looking to get into Monty Python.
