Sika’s 100 Greatest Movies of All Time! 31. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

September 11, 2011

31. Monty Python and the Holy Grail [DVD] (1975)

Plot: King Arthur (Graham Chapman) is looking for knights to sit with him at Camelot, and finds Sir Galahad the pure (Michael Palin), Sir Lancelot the brave (John Cleese), the quiet Sir Bedevere (Terry Jones), and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir Lancelot (Eric Idle).

When told by God to find the Holy Grail, they ride off on an adventure; forced to fight a killer rabbit, answer correctly (or die) at the bridge of Death, try to pass the knights who only say “Ni”, and survive the taunting of French soldiers. Who will survive the madness to find the Holy Grail?

And now! At Last! Another film completely different from some of the other films which aren’t quite the same as this one is. (tagline)

Review: I love this movie! And what’s not to love about a movie that have riders click coconuts together to fake the sound of horses instead of spending money on real ones?

Nerdiest Movie Trivia: Earnings from Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side of the Moon went toward funding this movie.
