Not bad, not fantastic
30 January 1999 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

There are some very funny bits in this video, which I just picked up recently to add to the Python collection. Most notably, the Pope meets Michaelangelo sketch, the Peter Cook sketch, and one where a guy moves his fingers around (not sure who he was). But some of the stuff is incredibly dated - the stupid song about a monkey and the over-used "guy dressed as a woman - isn't this funny" sketch was goes too-long. Also, I wondered where Python member ERIC IDLE was... How many more times do we need the parrot sketch and the lumberjack song - they are great, but for a python fan it's a rental not something to buy like I did. 6 1/2 of/10.

"Why in God's name did you paint THREE Christs?" "Well the fat one in the middle balances out the two skinny ones, doesn't he?"
