back to article New Monty Python movie to turn old jokes into new royalties

When legendary comedy troupe Monty Python staged “Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go” in 2014, its surviving members filmed themselves taking what they promised would be their final bows together. So how can we then speak of a new Python movie in the headline? Because, according to entertainment industry outlet Deadline, the …

"Come see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being repressed!"

"Bloody peasant!"

"Oooh! What a giveaway!"

And of course...

"Yes, you must spank us all. And after the spankings comes the oral sex!"

As I recall, no mention of who would be giving, and who receiving the oral sex...

My favorite theater moment was the couple in the row in front of us that overheated during the Castle Anthrax scene.

Cleese has got a lot of ex-wives to pay for. Perhaps his funniest moment.

Ex-wives? As in wives that have ceased to be? That have shuffled off this marital coil and gone to join the choir invisible?

"and now for something completely different!" (not)

I really enjoyed Spamalot and so did the audience if the smiling happy faces were anything to go by.

Re: I'M BRIAN!

I was fortunate enough to get tickets for "Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy)" at the Royal Albert Hall in 2009. It was as brilliant as expected, but made all the better by someone coming up to the standing balcony right at the top (cheap) at the interval, and asking me and Mrs IP if we would like their tickets, as they had to leave. We saw the second half right down in the centre of the stalls, close enough to see the stubble on Eric Idle's chin!

(I just looked it up to be sure of the year, and discovered that the whole thing was recorded - I need to get that DVD!)

Re: topical

A pal of mine who used to lecture on international politics used Life of Brian to illustrate many aspects of political theory to his students.

As a youngster (slightly underage) I went to see it when it was first released and loved it. When I saw it when I was older, the socio-politcial jokes made far more sense meaning that I got more out of it later.

Still love the "You're all individuals....." etc bit - best joke ever IMHO in so many ways.

Given that I used to own the cassette of the soundtrack of the trailer of the film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I'd say that they're staying true to their principles.

You can google that by the way, that's what it was called.
