After more than 20 years it still brings a smile to my face.
18 December 2001 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

I, too, saw this prelude to "The Life Of Brian". I was completely taken in by its stereotypical, travelogue start and slowly consumed by its decay into convulsively funny chaos.

If anyone can discover who currently owns the copyright, we may have a chance of finding a source so we can enjoy it again. I wish us all well in this search for this holy grail.
