Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy | 91min | May 25, 1975 (United Kingdom) 8.2
Director: Terry Gilliam, Terry JonesWriter: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric IdleStars: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric IdleSummary: History is turned on its comic head when, in tenth-century England, King Arthur travels the countryside to find knights who will join him at the Round Table in Camelot. Gathering up the men is a tale in itself but after a bit of a party at Camelot, many decide to leave only to be stopped by God, who sends them on a quest: to find the Holy Grail. After a series of individual adventures, the knights are reunited but must face a wizard named Tim the Enchanter, killer rabbits and lessons in the use of holy hand grenades. Their quest comes to an end however when the Police intervene - just what you would expect in a Monty Python movie. —garykmcd
