Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Broadway show Monty Python's Spamalot is on the way to Houston in May, so this is the perfect time to reconnect with the show's inspiration, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It's arguably one of the funniest movies ever made. Don't misunderstand us, there's nothing wrong with a big-budget stage production, but Holy Grail is a fantastically funny film that had to use every ounce of wit it could on a budget so tight that it had to borrow a bunny for the Rabbit of Caerbannog instead of buying one. That need for skill over sizzle comes through in the finished film in the enduring quality of the dialogue and the impeccable timing of the jokes.
