"What's endearing about the Pythons is their good cheer, their irreverence, their willingness to allow comic situations to develop through a gradual accumulation of small insanities." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The Pythons are enlightened jesters, whose scorn is reserved for those who persist in walking in darkness." - Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Featuring some of the more memorable Python characters -- Biggus Dickus, Mr. Big Nose, Brian himself -- and scenarios -- a lesson in proper graffiti grammar, surprise alien abduction, and, of course, the crucifixion scene -- it is an intoxicating celebration of the bizarre, outlandish, and unthinkable. Or, simply put, it is Monty Python at their ridiculous best." - Rebecca Flint Marx, Allmovie.com
