Great Python comedy.
"I'm Brian, and so is my wife"
"Hey Big nose....!"
The final scene (singinng on the crosses) is one of my favorite endings to any movie.
Hmmm.... I could've swore we'd reviewed this one by now....anyways, the proper title is 'Monty Python's Life of Brian', if anyone wants to change it....
Great send-up of a parallel to the life of Christ, tons of classic Python material....
the stoning scene, Pilate and Biggus Dickus, the haggler, the stutterer and the mad deaf mute, the spaceship scene, "Follow the gourd!"....there's so much.
"I'm a Jew, mother! I'm a kike, a Yid, a Hebe, a hooknose! I'm a red sea pedestrian, and proud of it!"
Hey big nose! Where are you from, nose city?
"I think he said 'Blessed are the cheesemakers!'"
"'Blessed are the cheesemakers'....??"
"Well it's not to be taken literally. It can refer to the manufactureres of any dairy products."
Mikey hasn't seen this film, and as such, he is a BLASHPHEMER and must be stoned to death!
don't be too hard on him..."he's had a hell of a time"
Not that MIKEY would know this....
...but there's a small, fleeting cameo in one scene by George Harrison, who supplied the Pythons with much-needed funds at the time of production.
Kinda neat. You have to know where and when to look for him (it's fast, and uncredited), like when the stormtrooper bumped his head in Star Wars.
Deril, check it out!
There is an actual novel called "Blessed Are The Cheesemakers" by Sarah-Kate Lynch. I stumbled upon it accidentally, and thought there's NO WAY the title is a coincidence. Sure enough, there's a citation in the book for Monty Python's Life Of Brian. The book itself seems to be a romantic-shmaltzy thing along the lines of 'Chocolat'.
P.S. - MIKEY! Next time we're together we WILL watch Life Of Brian! Come on, already!
that's nice, cause they've had a hell of a time
