A young man is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence.

In future Britain, charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society's crime problem - but not all goes according to plan.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a wookiee and two droids to save the universe from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
The movie starts out with Arthur, King of the Britons, looking for knights to sit with him at Camelot. He finds many knights including Sir Galahad the pure, Sir Lancelot the brave, the quiet Sir Bedevere, and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir Lancelot. They do not travel on horses, but pretend they do and have their servants bang coconuts to make the sound of horse's hooves. Through satire of certain events in history (witch trials, the black plague) they find Camelot, but after literally a quick song and dance they decide that they do not want to go there. While walking away, God (who seems to be grumpy) come to them from a cloud and tells them to find the Holy Grail. They agree and begin their search. While they search for the Grail, scenes of the knight's tales appear and why they have the name they have. Throughout their search they meet interesting people and knights along the way.

When Sir Galahad (Michael Palin) arrives at Castle Anthrax, he is told by Zoot that "8 score" (160) blondes and brunettes reside there. Later on, when Sir Lancelot comes to "rescue" him, he protests that he can handle "150" girls. See more »
I am the type of person who finds fault with every film I see. If I were on the X factor I would be Simon Cowell. But every couple of years I see a movie which I cannot find fault with. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is perfect I have only ever given 4 films 10/10. This is one of them. The subtle blend of satire and wit with slapstick and ridiculous animations makes me laugh my arse off! Nowadays films like this with memorable quotes, mild language and no nudity don't exist. Monty Python and the Holy Grail punches The Inbetweeners Movie in the face very hard! (I hate the Inbetweeners but my friends love them) In my opinion it should be much higher in the top 250. This was the beginning of a comedy trilogy about as completely unconnected with each other as 2 completely unconnected things. My highly esteemed rating for Monty Python and the Holy Grail 10/10!
