The Judge: Before I pass sentence, will the jury care to find him guilty?
Rat: Wait. One of those wabbits is a weasel.
Chief Weasel: No I'm not. I'm a rabbit!
The Judge: [to the jury] Is he a rabbit?
Chief Weasel: [whispers] Say I'm a rabbit.
[Rabbits all nod, say "Rabbit" and stroke their long ears]
Rat: That weasel is never a wabbit!

Colourful comedy fun
17 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Fantastic family fun sees the Python team back on top form. Director Terry Jones (Who also writes and fantastically plays the part of Green - headed pink - cheeked fly - eating fantastically funny Toad in the film) sees the film to suit all ages. We've got a touching performance from Steve Coogan as heroic/overwimpy Mole, Overcooked portrayal of Rat from Eric Idle, and excellent performance from Nicol Williamson as Badger, and really cherrie performance from Michal Palin as the Sun. But by far the best performance was Antoney Sher's portrayal of the hissable Cheif Weasel. A real feast of cherrie popcorn fodder and tounges remain firmly in cheek throughout. Highly enjoyable.
