There are probably not hard numbers on this sort of thing, but “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” may very well be the single most quoted comedy of all time. If 10 of you were to go quiz your dads on their favorite movies, nine of you would find this quirky Arthurian parody pretty high on the list.
That’s the lasting impact of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Lovingly assembled by the Monty Python comedy troupe (and famously bankrolled by some of the most beloved musicians of the day, including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Jethro Tull, who stepped in when studios wouldn’t touch it), “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” explores many of King Arthur’s legendary adventures — sort of. In a lot of ways, the film captures the aimlessness of Arthurian mythology in a way that few other films are able to; the truth is, the Knights of the Round Table really just wander around looking for scrapes to get into.
We’re not even going to try to list the highlights of the film, because the entire screenplay would just end up here. Suffice it to say, it’s all good, and everyone should watch it.
