The Monty Python team are at it again in their second movie. This time we follow King Arthur and his knights in their search for the Holy Grail. This isn't your average medieval knights and horses story - for a start, due to a shortage in the kingdom, all the horses have been replaced by servants clopping coconuts together !


Watch this or i will bite your legs off! Without a shadow of a doubt Monty Python produced the funniest films ever made.The Holy Grail is the first of the feature movies (not including Now For something Completely Different)and although superbly funny it is not as funny as The Meaning Of Life or the funniest film ever made The Life Of Brian. The Python team set out to find the Holy Grail and along the way they meet sureal characters,sing silly songs and come up the silliest and extremely funny dialogue you will ever hear, such as, the french knights who fight by insulting their enemies with taunts such as "I wave my private parts at your aunties, you cheesy lot of second hand electric donkey bottom biters!" The problem i have with The Holy Grail is the ending. I Know Python's humour is very , very, sureal at times but without giving the ending away it tries to be python like yet fails letting the audiance down. If you like this you must see the other two.............NEE!............ 9 out of 10
