Why are we here, what's it all about? The Monty Python-team is trying to sort out the most important question on Earth: what is the meaning of life? They do so by exploring the various stages of life, starting with birth. A doctor ms interested in his equipment than in delivering the baby or caring for the mother, a Roman Catholic couple have quite a lot of children because 'every sperm is sacred'. In the growing and learning part of life, catholic schoolboys attend a rather strange church service and ditto sex education lesson. Onto war, where an officer's plan to attack is thwarted by his underlings wanting to celebrate his birthday and an officer's leg is bitten off by presumably an African tiger. At middle age a couple orders 'philosophy' at a restaurant, after which the film continues with live organ transplants. The autumn years are played in a restaurant, which, after being treated to the song 'Isn't It Awfully Nice to Have a Penis?' by an entertainer, s the arrival of an extremely fat man. He can eat a lot, but also throw up quite copiously. The Grim Reaper brings for the final stage of human life, death, a visit to a mansion, where the people are rather interested in him. But life doesn't stop at death. It's onto heaven, where it's always Christmas.

  • And I mean really offend them: This isnt a Mel Brooks movie, with friendly little ethnic in jokes. ( Read More )
  • Among the madness, prefeature, theres a Python short called The Crimson Permanent Assurance, a wittily conceived and executed fable about modern big business told in pirate terms. ( Read More )
  • Spirituality And Practice

    A zany and outrageous comedy about the wrong headedness of many serious people. ( Read More )
  • Blu Ray

    Despite its obvious shortcomings, The Meaning of Life also happens to be devastatingly funny at times, hitting a few beats of silliness with traditional Python precision. ( Read More )
  • Movie Chambers

    He, of course, is constantly barfing, in the most offensive way possible. ( Read More )
