Monty Python's And Now for Something Completely Different
Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different was first released in the US in 1973, but didn't really take off as a midnight-movie fixture until after the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV series began making the PBS rounds. Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam are the Pythonites in attendance, together with semiregulars Carol Cleveland and Connie Booth. The sketches presented include such classics as "The Lumberjack Song", "Hell's Grannies", "The Upperclass Twit of the Year Race", and, of… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fans will have most of it memorized by now."
‑ Don Druker, Chicago Reader
"Essential viewing for fans of Monty Python and British comedy, this film consists of some wonderful sketches, even though Terry Gilliam doesn't appear in them."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Although the cast is brilliant and the material generally funny, the film fails to take advantage of the big-screen format."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Como toda antologia, tem momentos mais e menos inspirados, mas, de modo geral, impressiona por sua inventividade."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A compilation of classic sketches."
‑ , Film4
"All good stuff."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Best of Monty Python sketches in one neat package."
‑ David Gurney, Common Sense Media
"However, by refilming the sketches for a cinematic format, with new editing, camerawork, close-ups ... yet without the give-and-take energy of a live studio audience, what on TV was seat-of-the-pants fresh is here flat and overproduced."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"The first feature-length Monty Python film is a collection of some of their best bits from the show."
‑ , Austin Chronicle
"If you know this material, you know it well; if you don't, you're in for a bizarre surprise as these six gifted men -- in their youthful glory -- blend the surreal and the scatological, the high with the low, manufacturing oddly brilliant comedy."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"A kind of insane logic seems to connect the sketches, if you look hard enough, but mostly the movie seems to exist in the present and be willing to try anything for a laugh."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A collection of deliberately unlinked comedy sketches and animated filler, the film is a workable sampler of the group's humor."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"Old-school fans will dig it, and Python newcomers will see what all the fuss is about."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Monty Python's best known sketches reshot and compiled on film, with slight variations and occasional profanity. Great sketches, but a rather pointless exercise."
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"Basically a "best of" Monty Python collection, but that's enough"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
