Quotes

Terry Jones: The thing is that... There's nothing funny about what Christ said and what's funny, really, is the fact that Christ said all these good things about "Love thy neighbor" and everything and for the next 2000 years people are killing each other and torturing each other because they can't decide HOW he said it.

Humorous
24 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

HBO special. Although billed as an awards ceremony, it's mostly a retrospective of their past work with a couple of great new little bits that remind the viewer that their humor, intelligence, and bad taste still haven't changed much through the years. All of the Pythons are there (including Graham Chapman in powdered form), and is MC'd by a surprisingly un-annoying Robert Klein. Memories of the group's past are interspersed with bits from the Flying Circus show and their movies (except for Life of Brian, which is curiously censored due to legal reasons), along with a couple of contrived - but funny - new bits to spice things up. We've seen most of this stuff before, but it still brings a smile to the face nonetheless. Flashes of the audience center mostly on the previous cast of Cheers (why? who knows). All in all, a funny and enjoyable way to blow an hour.
