Well, this is unquestionably one of the funniest movies ever made. The first

From the opening scene to the sudden ending this one won't let you leave the

Considering the low budget that the creators of the movie had at their
disposal would probably make "The Holy Grail" the best movie in this
genre-silly nonsense kind of stuff. It shows the great creativity and acting
capabilities of the Monty Python crew. It comes to say that a movie can be
made with a little bit of money - a great movie. 10 out of 10
