Best comedy of all time. Leaves everything else in dust.

What about DUCK SOUP by the Marx Brothers? LOL.

I hate this film with all my heart. Christ is my savior and lives in my soul. This piece of complete Hollywood trash is sick. It comes from the Anti-Christ!

Dude, it isn’t even about Jesus. Its about a guy who was born the same day as Jesus, right next door — and then spends the whole movie denying he’s any kind of messiah. Lighten up, Dude!
CHRIST THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (18 months ago)
Bullshit. At one point some ex-leper calls Christ “a bloody do-gooder”—because Jesus cured him and now he has trouble making a living by begging.

Love the Sermon On The Mount sequence. Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers” – and the people in the back can’t quite hear, and they say: “Blessed are the cheesemakers?” (LMAO)

That Graham Chapman went full frontal like his girlfriend is very commendable…Plus he had a decent rig.

What’s a rig?

HOLY GRAIL was funnier. When Michael Palin goes into the Castle of All Blond Women – and they all start saying, “We’ve all been very naughty. We all need to be given very hard spankings.” (LMFAO)

No nudity in GRAIL, though. We got to see butts and bush in BRIAN.

I can do without female bush at this stage. I’m not used to it in this day and age.

I can do without Brian’s butt! LOL

BTW, Beatle George put up his mansion to get a loan to finance LIFE OF BRIAN. My fave Beatle of all time.

George Harrison will finance a film attacking Christianity, but would he do it for a movie lampooning Hindu-ism? (George believed in Krishna.)

Love the crucifixion scene. Christ had a sense of humor. He made a bunch of puns in the New Testament. He said to Peter, “Upon this rock I shall build my church”—because ‘Peter’ and ‘rock’ sound almost the same in ancient Greek, or something. (GO JESUS!!!)

Blasphemy! You’ll all roast in Hell.

Shut your stupid mouth. I hope you get lockjaw!

LIFE OF BRIAN is not as funny as it used to be. It doesn’t hold up that well. Not like Danny Kaye in THE COURT JESTER.

I saw LIFE OF BRIAN back in the day on the Big Screen. There were protests galore. It was great. I’m an atheist, and I loved how the Pythons were pushing the religious envelope. One of them said something like: “Christianity has been around 2,000 years, and it can’t withstand a ninety-minute comedy movie?” I think it might’ve been John Cleese…I’m disabled, and I live in Cheltenham, England with my cats and my Nazi memorabilia, and my peppermint tea—but I was cheering him on when I saw him on the telly on that chat show!

Great when Brian turns to his followers and says, “Just fuck off.” And all the followers say in unison: “How should we fuck off, Lord?” (LMAO)

Terry Jones as Brian’s mum steals the movie—IMHO. He was in drag so much of the time, back in the FLYING CIRCUS days. He’s like England’s answer to Uncle Miltie!

The Speech Impediment stuff wouldn’t play today—I don’t think. But back when I first saw it, I fell on the floor laughing. Especially Eric Idle as a stutterer.

The Public Stoning part is genius! It really got my rocks off!

(Magic Meth-Head), I think you’ve been eating too much Cocoa Pebbles.

It made me cry when Eric Idle said he wanted to be a woman. It wasn’t going for laughs. It wasn’t that funny. It was just sad and poignant. It reminded me of the Truman Capote short story, “Dazzle”.

The deus ex machina alien spaceship sequence was so dumb. It wasn’t even good surrealism. Just mindless. I guess that was Terry Gilliam’s contribution. He did a thousand times better on the FLYING CIRCUS with his weird cut-out animations. They were baroque and beautiful and baffling, all at once.
DAVID DUVALL (6 months ago)
Eric Idle really came up with a great song at the end. And great lyrics: “Life is Shit.”

They all played multiple roles—like Peter Sellers in DR. STRANGELOVE and Alec Guinness in KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS and Jerry Lewis in THE FAMILY JEWELS. It got a little confusing. Was Terry Gilliam in it? I liked him so much in HOLY GRAIL as King Arthur’s mute slave.

I missed a lot of the dialogue with all the fast-talking Cockney accents.
NEVER FORGIVE, NEVER FORGET (4 minutes ago)
I wish they’d make a sequel. Brian rises from the dead after being crucified—and starts a new cult. It’s called, The Religion of Silly Walks.
