For the rest of his life, Brian (Graham Chapman) finds himself regarded as something of a messiah -- yet he's always in the shadow of this other guy from Galilee. Brian is

The Monty Python boys have always been known to satirize anything and everything, and ''Life of Brian'' is a great parody of Jesus Christ. Graham Chapman plays Brian, the pauper-turned-savior main character, whom everyone follows without question or hesitation. It's a great movie for any Monty Python fan or anyone who enjoys a laugh now and then.

The British comedy troupe Monty Python offended the pompous and pious with this stinging, satirical look at religion and how, desperate to believe in a higher power, people are willing to be blindly indoctrinated by anyone who claims to have all the answers. A great stocking stuffer for the iconoclast in your family!

It's a good thing YOUR not stupid. I'm glad you shared YOU'RE enlightened opinion with us all. If you think about the spaceship joke you might realize that it was really playing on narrative unity and expectations, and so it wasn't just an immature prank. The Life of Brian remains one of the greatest comedies of cinema history.

It is amusing how many people totally miss the multiple layers of satire employed by the Python's in Brian. The fact is that the overt parody of Jesus the person is actually quite mild. The real TARGET is the political, social and religious society of the late 20th century. It is a still VERY relevant today. My favorite part remains the bit when the zealots are ranting about Roman oppression ( What have the Romans ever done for us...) yet concede they could not do without all the real benefits the Romans gave their society ( roads, safety, peace). Favorite line... I say he is the Savior and I should know... I have a followed a few! The Python's force us to laugh at ourselves, my bet is that the Big Guy upstairs got the joke too.

In the thrid of the films done by the infamous Monty Pyhton troupe, The others being "And Now For Something Completely Different" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", they take the subject of religon. Well, not so much religon as the story of Christ. The film follows the story of Brain. A man born the same night and place as Jesus. And, with that little problem, he is constantly being mistaken for the messiah, and gets himself into a bit of a bind with the Romans. Said by John Cleese to be one of the best things the Pythons have ever done, it is a must have for any collection.

Fails in comparison to the Holy Grail. Minimal laughs but good plot to it. The jokes were childish and the part with the space ship was LAME AND STUPID. Not recremended for audiences over the age of 2 or if you have heart failure.
