As a movie, I'm not entirely sure how "Dentist On The Job" stacks up. However, i must say that when i first watched "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (special edition) This movie really made me sit up and take notice. Especially how it wasn't the movie i was expecting. As the movie opened on the unfamiliar black and white of "dentist" i was a bit taken aback. I admit that i restarted the movie to make sure i had got the right DVD in the player.
Whoever allowed this movie to preempt Holy Grail is a genius... it encouraged me to IMDb it to see just what the draw was. And i still am unsure.. much like many of the troupe's gags in and out of the mainstream. For random sake... i think it is hilarious.
