Boston Globe
Nobody ever placed brilliance in the service of silliness quite the way the Python gang did. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is stuffed with both.

Baltimore Sun
It's still the Holy Grail of crazy comedy.

New Times (L.A.)
What we have here is an historical document of inestimable value, describing in no uncertain terms the terrible and beautiful times before AIDS.

Chicago Tribune
An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.
80
Has a sense of humor that is intellectual, even academic, at heart.

Chicago Reader
Silly, sophomoric, and slapped together, but would you want it any other way?
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Still stands as a gloriously silly and twisted send-up.
70
Basically an excuse for set pieces, some amusing, others overdone.
