In one scene in this movie, Eric Idle's character is frustrated by a parrot giving misleading information. This film was written by Graham Chapman, and also stars John Cleese. Idle, Chapman and Cleese are all members of the Monty Python comedy team, who's most famous sketch is arguably 'the dead parrot', in which Cleese plays a character repeatedly frustrated in his attempts to return a dead parrot to a pet shop.

It is so tempting to write a letter full of spoilers since the movie is 23 years old, but I'll refrain because fresh eyes should see this movie and decide for themselves whether or not it works as a comedy. I absolutely loved the movie, and greatly enjoyed the talents of four or five different comedy ensembles being blended together for this movie. It didn't work 100 percent of course, but I'd say most of it worked just fine. If Peter Cook's first scene in the film doesn't have you spitting pop through your nose, check your pulse. My nose still tingles thinking about it. I note the many times that Cheech and Chong are singled out in this comment thread for being different or least funny of the cast. Cheech and Chong movies weren't everyone's cup of tea, but as a longtime C&C fan, I found their work in 'Yellowbeard' to be as good as anything else they've ever done. Except for 'The Corsican Brothers' of course.
