    What?

    Dull? Dull?!? Honestly now, it isn't Casablanca, but then again, it doesn't need to be. Particularly if you are at all a fan of the Pythons, you will seriously enjoy this film. This is Eric Idle doing some of his best work, and John Cleese's role, while small, is hilarious. Highly recommended light comedy.
