Storyline

This movie is a comic oratorio based on Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979), 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".

Largely Unwatchable
3 February 2020 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

I cringed throughout this piece of garbage. These former MP performers are so desperate to remain relevant they will re-hash anything from yesteryear and spit it in the face of consumers.

Unfortunately yesteryear is to today.

This movie/musical piece sucks.
