And Now For Something Completely Different

"Excellent"

And Now For Something Completely Different Review


Monty Python's feature debut wasn't much more than a reprise of some of its best-loved TV sketches -- refilmed, lightly touched up in the dialogue department, and presented with the usual bare bones, non-sequitur method of stringing it all together. It's basically a supersized clip show, before such a thing existed. At the same time, there is something new here for Python fanatics, as the reshooting of the skits lends them a slightly different character, while they retain their overall ribald excellence. Old-school fans will dig it, and Python newcomers will see what all the fuss is about.
