Storyline

Not The Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy) is a comic oratorio based on Monty Python's Life of Brian, which retells the tragic tale of Mandy, impregnated by a Roman soldier, giving birth to Brian, a reluctant revolutionary of the People's Front of Judea who falls in love with Judith, gets mistaken for a Messiah and is arrested by the Romans and sentenced to be crucified. It ranges in reference from Handel, through a naughty Mozart duet, to the Festival of Nine Carols, Bob Dylan, and the classic finale "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". Written by Anonymous

All the humour of opera.
1 August 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a complete waste of time.

The new material is not even slightly funny and the operatic style kills the humour of the old material.

The singing is good but not really suited to comedy. The music is good but again this is supposed to be comedy so that isn't very important.

There are some odd cameos that fail to be funny.

It ends with the crowd-pleasers like a concert.

If you like Monty Python then watch the film, if you don't like them this won't convert you.

The only positive is that watching this has convinced me to re-watch The Life of Brian just to clear this rubbish from my mind.
