The first feature film from the Monty Python gang comes to DVD in this spectacular twin-disc set. The film itself is presented in a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Mono. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. The copious supplemental materials include a commentary track by Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones that features the occasional remark from John Cleese, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin. The second disc contains singalongs, a version of the film created entirely out of Legos, a pair of documentaries about the creation of the film, an interactive cast directory, artwork from the film, a photo gallery, trailers, and a bunch of other material that will keep Python fans entertained for a very long time. This is probably the definitive home video version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

This movie is an instant classic. The song that Sir Robins singers sing are great, the knights who say Ni are awesome and that random french guy on the castle that kept saying Kanigits instead of knights. funny stuff.
Welcome to comedy at it's best. This movie is incredibly inventive and always hilarious. A warning though: DO NOT GO TO CAMELOT. IT IS A SILLY PLACE.
this is a 5 star rating movie. it is totally funny and eric idle is the best out of all of them. he is sir robin of course.
OMG! I absolutley love this movie. If you do not see this movie, i will say "ni" to you. My best friend reccomended it to me, and i love him forever for it. You will always love it! it is a must see! trust me! unforgettable humor! GET IT!!!!!! NOW!! It is hilarious! You must go watch it, or I will fart in your general direction! I saw the Broadway show for it, Monty Python's Spamalot, in December, and absolutley loved it! I also reccomend that, 2. (Tho Graham Chapman is dead, he will always live on in the heart of ARTHUR, KING OF THE BRITONS!!!!!!! but eric idle is always the best!=]=]=])
This is the perfect movie for you if you have a good sense of humor! This movie is a MUST see! This is truly the best movie EVER!!!
For Years, Monty Python was my favorite old TV show, and when I watched Holy Grail, I was laughing so hard, I almost died. It is my favorite comedy of all time, other than ANimal House. I recommend this movie, anyday to anyone.
This is my favorite movie and it always will be! You MUST SEE IT! If you haven't seen it, you haven't lived! Monty Python is what life is all about!
This movie will crack you up. You'll be quoting this movie forever, and you'll never get tired of watching it. You have to see this movie
dudes you guys dont even know how funny this movie is! man i was laughing my fricken head off. i swear i coulda pissed in my pants, but i kept it in haha. i saw it when i was visiting my friend in utah and man i coulda swore he'd start crying he was laughing so hard. but dudes i swear, if ur lyk really depressed and what not, this will make you laugh. i mean some depressed goth dude could watch this and hed laugh. surprising, huh?
this movie is yet another one of my favorite comedy movies in my collection. it is so hilarious... you will be peeing in your pants, and laughing so much that it hurts.. this is a MUST SEE MOVIE!! you willl love it!
In the zany world of Monty Python, even medieval times can be a hilarious romp - black plague and all. Certain lines - such as "what's your favorite color?" and "I'm not dead yet" - will stick to your funny bones forever.
The Special Edition is a lot better. It has a remake of the ''Knights of the Round Table song'' using Legos. Everything is in Legos and it is very well done.
If you haven't seen this movie, have seen it, or if you're a big python fan, this is a must see! I must've seen it lik 15 times! The classic moments like '' I have defeated you! No you haven't! I cut your arm off! No, tis a scratch. What are you going to do, bleed on me!'', are unforgettable.
You won't believe your eyes. I have seen this movie dozens of times, and it's still hilarious. If you're uptight, don't buy it. Otherwise, grab your credit card and buy now.
My husband introduced me to this comedic film that is "Monty Python And The Holy Grail." He has owned this dvd for over ten years now and was able to explain some of the scenes to me while allowing me to discover what happens. There are 28 scenes available in this collection and one of my favorite scenes was the humorous part where one of the knights ends up in a castle of several women that apparently want to "take care of him in their own way." "Monty Python And The Holy Grail" is great to watch for those moments when you're craving something to make you laugh.
This is the best movie! It is a nonstop trip when it comes to coconuts, nasty French guardsmen that come up with the oddest insults and catapult cattle, naughty women in the Castle Anthrax, The Knights Who Say Ni and demand shrubbery, Killer Bunnies, and crazy knights. I would recommend this to anyone, except those who don't get British humor or the BBC. Stick to movies like Young Frankenstein (which was totally hilarious, too).
this is the funniest movie of all time .its great for any monty pythons fans and its great for any comedy fans whatch this its dynamite... and so is the bunny
Great movie The black knight, the killer rabbit, it's just so funny you must see it!
This movie is the funniest movie I had ever seen
