What's your favorite(s) Monty Python movie?

My favorites are (drumroll, please):

1. Life Of Brian
(on a side note, I've got a black & white poster of Graham Chapman from LOB, and it's where he opened up the shutters in the morning after doing the deed with his lady friend; he's holding his hand over his winky when he sees a huge crowd in the square below the window...)

2. Monty Python & The Quest for the Holy Grail
(easily one of the funniest movies of all time, of which many of us can attest to)

**********************
My least favorite:

Meaning Of Life
**********************

Question for the more knowledgeable MP fans: does Time Travelers & The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen (forgive any spelling errors there) officially count as a MP movie? I've never been able to figure that out.

Loving British humor is,
LC

Life of Brian. It's the most completely realised one.

Re: Time Bandits and Munchausen. No, these are Terry Gilliam films. John Cleese makes a brief appearance in the first, Eric Idle in the second. If you liked them, you should see Jabberwocky, which is not really meant as a comedy, more as a fantasy, and stars Palin. It was Gilliam's first effort as solo director.

dC, mourning for what might have been with "Don Quixote".

A feature on the Holy Grail dvd is a version of 'Knights at the round table' remastered with Lego figures... most amusing!

Oooo - I was hoping we could post Gilliam flicks too - since the MP movies are really part of his oeuvre (right?)

I do love "Holy Grail" - both the movie & the accompanying record (which I became way too familiar with in my teen years) but Gilliam's "Brazil" and "Time Bandits" are some of my favorite films of all time... I like to be disturbed and overwhelmed.

I'm wiping the dust off this old file - I love all their stuff: their movies, Fawlty Towers, Michael Palin's travel series and of course the Flying Circus which I bought, yes, the whole series. My two kids, bless them, also love the boyz. Did anyone get to see the Broadway show?
