Monty Python Gift Set: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, And Now For Something Completely Different

From holy hand grenades to killer bunnies to the absurdity of the three-headed knights who say "Ni--!," this is basically a series of mad sketches woven together as King Arthur's Quest for the Holy Grail, with Graham Chapman as the King, John Cleese as the Black Knight, Terry Gilliam as the King's simpleton sidekick, Patsy, and the rest of the Python gang playing outrageous roles. To the Arthurian legends, nothing is sacred, as this film runs from satirical to totally irreverent. It is either the funniest thing you have ever seen or the most inane. Personally, I liked "Life of Brian" better. If you really enjoyed this film, there are hundreds of sites with the script and information on the web at your fingertips.
