Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When The Life of Brian was first released in 1979 it was hailed by most as Monty Python's finest parody and denounced by a few as the most blasphemous film of all time. But, with its unforgettable song, 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,' and its infinitely quotable script it has gone on to become an enduring cult classic.

Review:

"Bad taste of this order is rare but not yet dead....[The Life of Brian] is the foulest-spoken biblical epic ever made, as well as the best-humored: a non-stop orgy of assaults, not on anyone's virtue, but on the funnybone." The New York Times

Review:

"I have never come across such a foul, disgusting, blasphemous film before....I'd be overjoyed to see this film sent back to where it was produced...hell." Rabbi Abraham Hecht

Review:

"Deliriously tasteless....Pontius Pilate cannot pronounce his r's, and his boyfriend Biggus Dickus has a distinct lisp....It is much more a satire on Hollywood religious films than on religion itself." The Guardian (U.K.)

Review:

"It is now the obligation of all persons of cultivation to recognise contemptuous anti-religious sentiment of this sort and to separate themselves from it personally as a matter of principle." The Roman Archdiocese of New York

Review:

"Much more fun than reading the Bible." James Behan, Cricklewood

Review:

"Hurray for blasphemy!" New Statesman

Synopsis:

The complete screenplay to the deliriously blasphemous Monty Python film, written by and starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin, and directed by Terry Jones.
