Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

by

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fully illustrated edition of the hilarious Python classic which takes a pop at almost every single sacred cow of culture and includes the famous tune "Every sperm is sacred."

Although primarily aimed at an audience of fish, Monty Python's film, The Meaning of Life, spans the whole range of human experience. It starts with the birth of a seemingly insignificant human being (especially from a haddock's point of view) who, sure enough turns out to play no further part in the film.

Synopsis:

The publishers would like to thank all the fish who have collaborated in this book. We hope that other fish will follow the example of those who have participated, so that, in future, fish all over the world will live together in harmony and understanding, and put aside their petty differences, cease pursuing and eating each other and live for a brighter, better future for all fish, and those who love them. Thank you.

(Obviously this applies to bigger fish rather more than to smaller fish.)

Synopsis:

The complete screenplay (with photographs and illustrations) of the final Monty Python film, written by and starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin, and directed by Terry Jones.

Synopsis:

October 1999 marked the 30th anniversary of the first broadcast of Monty Python's Flying Circus on BBC television. This book contains the full script with pictures of the last Monty Python film.

Synopsis:

The award-winning 1983 masterpiece lampooning the Seven Ages of Man.

About the Author

Monty Python was a British surreal comedy group that created Monty Python's Flying Circus, an influential British television comedy sketch show.
