  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail is an iconic film comedy featuring the extraordinary talents of the very popular British sketch-comedy group, Monty Python. You've seen them be absurdly hilarious in Monty Python's Flying Circus on television, you laughed hysterically at their first film "And Now For Something Completely Different", now catch these comedic visionaries' second and most celebrated film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It's the Middle Ages, and the notorious King Arthur is after the Holy Grail that Jesus is said to have used at the Last Supper. But Arthur can't do it alone, he'll need and meet recruits along the way- Brave Sir Robin, the coconut clapping Patsy, and Sir Galahad to name but a few. Silly, scatter brained and hilariously bizarre, this film is considered one of the funniest films of all time by multiple sources and a strong reminder that Monty Python may have been the best thing to come out of England since the Beatles. This is also the basis of the current hit Broadway musical, Spamalot.moreless

      Prince Herbert: But I don't like her.
      King of Swamp Castle: Don't like her? What's wrong with her? She's beautiful, she's rich, she's got huge... tracts of land.

    • Tim: Follow. But! Follow only if ye be men of valor! For the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel, that no man yet has fought with it... and lived! Bones of full fifty men lie strewn about its lair! So! Brave knights! If you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth...
      King Arthur: What an eccentric performance.

    • Dennis: Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

    • King of Swamp Castle: When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England.
