Quotes

[Ron Nasty and wife Chastity are giving a press conference in Nasty's shower]
Ron Nasty: We're doing this for peace, and basically to show that the world is, you know, going astray in its thinking.
Reporter: What are you doing?
Ron Nasty: We're getting wet. In a shower. Because, basically, we talked it over, Chastity and myself, and we came to the conclusion that civilization is nothing more than an effective sewage system. And so by the use of plumbing we hope to demonstrate this to the world.

I must be in luv
16 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I just picked up this Dvd and I can't stop watching it. It brought back such good memories. The first time I saw this I must have been 13 and I had just become a Beatles fan. I was like "what the ...?" I then bought the soundtrack on vinyl ( which I still play ) Its just great to see all those people up there having fun, Neil Innes and Erics Idle are brilliant.
