Hello! I'm here for an argument.
24 August 2000 | by (Swedois!) – See all my reviews

Okay, this is great. Monty Python - live, in front of a huge audiens - gives this movie a good sense of atmosphere (all the happy people you see that is so happy you would think they'd die of it) that enlightens the Python show - that must go on!

Several of the classic scetches is performed; The Person Looking For An Argument, Little Redriding Hood, The Nutcase Olympics, The Lumberjacker and several more of great quality. You'll laugh like a maniac!
