1.0 out of 5 stars The worst editions of these three films January 20, 2008
Format:DVD
There is only one reason to buy this repackaging of these three films - 'And Now for Something Completely Different', which is not available in a better presentation. Both the versions of 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' and 'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen' are the worst possible presentations of these films available on video. In fact, 'Baron Munchausen' is the fist time that I have seen a wide screen film presented on DVD that was culled from a pan and scan video edition, re-framed as letterbox and then mastered to anamorphic. In this era of digital re-mastering in high definition for presentation in anamorphic as the de-facto standard for DVD releases, this edition is a travesty.

Don't buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars And Now For Something Completely Hilarious January 2, 2006
Format:DVD
Monty Python are probably the best known sketch comedian ever. They made a tv show, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and several hilarious movies.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

Their first movie, which is a collection of their best skits from their tv show. This movie is hilarious. It includes The Lumberjack Song, The Dead Parrot Sketch, The Dirty Fork, and the World Funniest Joke.

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL

Their best movie. It's about Arthur and his knights looking for the Holy Grail. This movie will make you laugh insanely. Funny moments include The Killer Rabbit, The Knights Who Say Ni, and The Black Knight.

THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN

This movie is not a Monty Python film but was made by Terry Gilliam and co-stars Eric Idle, both of whom are former Pythons.

A must have for any Monty Python fan.

This set deserves the five stars and more. I recommend this to any Monty Python fan, British Comedy fan, or comedy fan in general. Too bad it didn't inlude The Meaning Of Life or Life Of Brian.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't make sense... August 26, 2009
Format:DVD
The "Monty Python Box Set" contains only three DVDs. One of the DVDs isn't even a Monty Python movie. Replace it with "The Life of Brian" or something Monty Python actually DID.

This is stupid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zany English Satire at its Best October 4, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always loved the zany, silly, never-fully-serious, antics of Monty Python's Flying Circus, and to get a boxed set of 3 DVD's for less than $20.00 was a major find (in my not-so-humble opinion). What MP does so well is take the everyday boring routine of life and turn it upside down and inside out, by means of pure unadulterated silliness. They find ingenious ways to "poke fun" at everything, but somehow manage to do it in such a way that its virtually impossible to be offended by it.

The first volume in the set, "And Now For Something Completely Different, contains the best of their hit BBC TV Show from the early 1970's "Monty Python's Flying Circus." The various bits and sketches are still every bit as funny today as they were then.

The second volume was their first feature film: "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," takes a peculiar and perverse look at the King Arthur myth and his quest to find the most holy of cups in all the world. There is so much levity, parody, and satirical wit in this one film that its destined to remain a classic for some time to come.

The third volume contains "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a more recent release written by one of the members of the original group. If the movie "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" were to be mugged, then get run over by a bus, two cars, and a motor scooter, it might be close to the content in this movie.

I realize that MP is not for everyone. Not everybody enjoys their witty repertoire, but for those die-hard fans who find their unique brand of irreverent humor enjoyable, this is a must-have, and this three-in-one package deal makes it a bargain to boot.

Well actually one film is not a Python film(Baron) but it is direced by Terry Gilliam and has some Python members in it!!! The other two(...Completely Different and Holy Grail) and absolute classic Python gems!!! A great set for the python fan!!! But beware that these are single disc bare bones releases(but they ARE anamorphic widescreen so that is a plus) so dont expect much in the line of extras,but it's a great buy if you can find it a low price,I hate paying full price!!! I'd problably give this set actually 3.5 stars due to the lack of extras,but heck it's Monty Python and it gets the full five stars!!! Absolute classic British comedy!!! A+

5.0 out of 5 stars Nudge, nudge, wink, wink January 11, 2007
Format:DVD
If you are a fan of Monty Python, this is a must have. The Holy Grail is quite possibly the funniest movie ever made and Something Completely Different is a collection of skits that includes the Funniest Joke Ever Told, Hell's Grannies, and the famous Parrot skit. The three movies are all on separate discs in the thinner DVD cases so it isn't even as bulky as most boxed sets. Overall, no Monty Python fan's library is complete without this set.

Monty Python is one of the funniest groups of movies and TV shows ever! and this Box Set is more than worth the small price for these 3 movies!!! The Holy Grail is one of the coolest, funniest, most enjoyable movies ever! Baron Muchausen is cute, not the best ever, but it is cute and along with Holy Grail and Now For Something Completely Different, this is a great Box Set, for anyone who loves comedy, and especially for anyone who is a fan of Monty Python!!!

I recomend to all!!!
