February 25, 2019
While the most ambitious and thematically coherent of the Monty Python feature films, Life of Brian is also the least of them.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 11, 2009
I've always considered it the group's nadir; it seems toothlessly silly.
October 4, 2002
Overrated Python flick. It's just not that funny.
| Original Score: 2/5

Brian's life is pure hell. And very funny to watch.
May 7, 2019
Life of Brian is undoubtedly the greatest religious satire of all-time. Comedic gold.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

While the movie doesn't reinvent the wheel, it is professionally impeccable. [Full Review in Spanish]

Regularly voted the funniest British film. A contender.

Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 18, 2004
Funny, in that peculiar British way where jokes are told sideways, with the obvious point and then the delayed zinger.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 9, 2003
There is little doubt that The Life of Brian represents some of the most daring and cutting edge comedy of the 1970s.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
September 30, 2005
Although some consider Monty Python an acquired taste, anyone with a sense of humor and an open mind should find something in this movie to enjoy.

September 14, 2003
A biting, absurdist satire of biblical proportions.
| Original Score: 5/5
April 3, 2005
Movies just don't really come much funnier than this.
| Original Score: 5/5

The plot treads a narrow, semi-blasphemous path through ancient times.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 29, 2017
The Pythons' instincts strike home, not only in Brian's miserable failure to imbue his followers with some basic decency, but in the self-apparent barbarism that he's fighting against.
November 11, 2004
An icon of irreverent comic brilliance.
May 10, 2012
It looked back 2000 years for its comic content, but was a decade ahead in provoking Christian controversy. Yet how much hotter would the steaming Pilate of blasphemy-accusations have got if the Pythons had included their scripted mockeries of Zionism?
December 31, 2010
Sandaled Python pic too irreverent for young kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 6, 2014
Only a select few of [Monty Python's] truest fans will appreciate the message they convey in a movie that actively mocks the concept of organized religion while making us laugh along with them.
July 31, 2008
Just as wacky and imaginative as their earlier film outings.
