Monty Python and the Holy Grail came out in 1975 and even after 40 years, the film is still a comedic masterpiece with scene after scene of pure hilarity. While the whole thing is great, some scenes and their dialogue stand out above the rest and still serve as the source for the best comeback lines used today. Complete and total wit is hidden in the ridiculousness but fans of the comedy group knew what to expect and those who didn’t were pleasantly surprised by the satire, and the film became a worldwide hit.
Honorable Mention: Bring Out Yer Dead
The whole movie is funny and while there is a storyline incorporating the characters and their journey, some of the best clips are the aside stories that just mock instances and themes of life at the time. The deep social commentary provided in the “Bring Out Yer Dead” scene as well as perspective of mortality at the time, is again cleverly coded with an unbelievable interaction. “I’m not dead yet…I feel happy.” Check out the background of this scene too, just what is that old woman doing to that poor cat?
