Monty Python delivers the group's sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood's epic films. Set in 33 A.D. Judea where the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe them. At it's center is Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in a stable next door, who, by a series of absurd circumstances is caught up in the new religion and reluctantly mistake for the promised messiah, providing ample opportunity for the entire ensemble (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate and haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical view.

A man called Brian...not a very impressive name for, well, the supposed son of God. But Brian is just a young man trying to make the leap from adolescence to manhood and escape his mother's skirts (an ugly, but loving harlot played by Terry Jones) He unwittingly stumbles into circumstance after circumstance, that, - even though he tries to convince everyone he is just an ordinary guy- seems to thoroughly convince everyone that he is the second coming...a hero to save the masses, to brake the yoke of the Roman empire on the oppressed. The side busting antics are still bringing tears of laughter to my eyes and I've probably seen it, like, a hundred times! Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, the core group of MP are all here and in their heyday. This IS comedy at it's best. And no gross outs, no farts, no F bombs every other word...just plain Ol' brilliance.
This package ("The Immaculate Edition" Blu-ray) contains some really fun extras including a list of deleted scenes that I really think most people will agree would have made the whole film better had they been left in ... per the commentary, they were deleted mostly just to speed up the film & reduce the running time, rather than for any artistic / story-telling reason. Seems so funny to me that they were so concerned about our short attention spans back then, whilst in today's ADHD world we regularly receive and watch 3 hour long motion pictures! :-D
I would call this a 4.5 star effort, rounded up since The Zon doesn't let us post half stars.
