Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life

Of the three Monty Python films I watch this one the least, I can’t pinpoint why exactly, but it is still a very funny film.

Perhaps it is because the other films had an actual plot, whereas this was just a series of skits strung together, and there were no consistent characters to follow. But, it was no less funny, and it has more memorable songs than the other films. It was certainly the most disgusting and bloody…

Live liver donor scene

Mr Creosote is one of the more memorable parts of the film…

And one of my favourites is the Grim Reaper scene near the end…

Here is an article by the Pythons about how the film was made. And here is an interview with Terry Jones about Mr Creosote.

So it was funny stuff, and of the three films is the most Pythonesque.
