United Kingdom 1983 107 mins.

With something to offend most any sensibility, the comedy troupe of Monty Python offers this comprehensive and nonsensical guide to life—from birth to death. Filled with uproariously funny sketches and songs, the film is a grab bag of outrageous contemplations of the absurdity of life where everything is over the top and nothing is sacred …well, perhaps one thing.
