The story of Brian of Nazareth (Graham Chapman), born on the same day as Jesus of Nazareth, who takes a different path in life that leads to the same conclusion. Brian joins a political resistance movement aiming to get the Romans out of Judea. Brian scores a victory of sorts when he manages to paint political slogans on an entire wall in the city of Jerusalem. The movement is not very effective but somehow Brian becomes a prophet and gathers his own following. His fate is sealed however and he lives a very short life.Written by
Brian sells "Wolf nipple chips, get 'em while they're 'ot. They're lovely!" This is a reference to the famous myth that the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, were suckled by a she-wolf when they were babies - a story commemorated by ancient statues. See more »
When the Gladiator has a heart attack in front of the entrance gate to the arena. A high ranked Roman then makes the comment absolutely dreadful. Next scene the gladiator is no longer in front of the entrance gate. Note, the gladiator who suffers the heart attack was called a Hoplomachus gladiator. See more »
For many years I have worked tirelessly to promote the aims of the Popular Front of Judea, and quite frankly I'm disgusted at its treatment of us. To depict us as a lonely old man is one of the most grotesque distortions ever commited to celluloid. We are at least three times that number, and furthermore we don't have a single repressed transexual among us. An absolute disgrace. I shall never watch this film again, unless I rent it out on video or see it on the TV in the near future. Vive la PFJ.
