The legend of King Arthur gets a well deserved swipe in what may be the comedy film of the decade or at least the week…. [Monty Python and the Holy Grail is] a smorgasboard of sight gags, puns, black humor and satire that reduces Camelot to a madhouse…. The comedy pace is faster than the Marx Brothers ever dreamed of and the humor is cerebral enough to make Woody Allen wince. If you enjoy laughing, drooling or sticking your thumb up your nose and making strange noises, you owe it to yourself to see this film as opposed to listening to it which would be a fairly silly move on your part.
