Rotten Tomatoes: 94% – A cult classic as gut-bustingly hilarious as it is blithely ridiculous, Monty Python and the Holy Grail has lost none of its exceedingly silly charm.
My rating: ***
My assessment (the first 101 words at least): I’m honestly not quite sure what I’ve just seen. I suppose it was a movie, though a very strange movie that barely had a central plot or logical path. It was more a series of skits loosely strung together. Some skits were funny, some weren’t, but overall it was good. I don’t think I see this as a classic like other people do, so much as some harmless fun. The movie itself is hoping you’ll forget the lame skits and have good memories of the funny skits. Good enough for a single watch, but no need to watch it again.
