Summary: great representation and price
Comment: We found this to be a great price compared to buying in a store. We were happy that it was so easy to order and came very quickly after we ordered it. Of course it was in great condition too.

Summary: Not quite great edition
Comment: Well, the movie is awesome, the second DVD is awesome, all the little extras on both DVDs are great. Of course the film is grainy and such, it was meant to be that way.

Now, this version is not as good as another. The Extraordinarily Deluxe Edition. It has the DVD and the second DVD. It also includes the old album that was released of the film ow on CD. It is packaged nicely (it looks better than this version).

I think it is kewl that they were adding in the Script, but it is already on the DVD itself. Plus if you just google, you can find it online very easily. So it really isn't worth it to have it included for this much. The Extraordinarily version is the one I recommend. It's packaging looks much better as well as aranged better, it has the extra cd, and it costs less. With the money you save, you can get some coconuts and play along with the movie.

Summary: My absolute favorite movie EVER!
Comment: For mindless entertainment I love to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail. There is no rhyme or reason to the movie, just a bunch of people doing stupid stuff and making it hilarious. There's no need for neverending flatulance jokes (which is overplayed in almost every comedy of today) or a need to make fun of different races and cultures just to get a cheap laugh. What it is is pure stupidity that makes you practically wet yourself when you watch it. I couldn't tell you how many times I have watched this movie and laugh hysterically every time (as if it's the first time I'm seeing it and hearing the jokes). This movie is perfect for those who feel like today's comedy's are overdone. It's full of fresh comedy (which no one since has even tried to copy) and doesn't bore you with repetitiveness

This movie, however, is NOT for everyone. ESPECIALLY OVERANALYZERS!! You need to watch the movie for what it is.....a silly comedy. There is no need to analyze why there's coconuts and no horses or why a woman is getting weighed. If you want something to ananlyze watch a documentary or a serious movie and go to a coffee shop afterwards to swap notes. Don't do it while watching the movie and definitely DON'T WATCH THIS ONE!

Summary: I got the Special Edition vs. the "foo foo" version ...
Comment: Listening to previous reviewers here on Amazon, I ordered only the "special edition" vs. the "foo foo" version that came with the book and other thing.

I'm glad I did.

The quality is fine, and it's so wonderful to be whisked away into Python-land once again!

I still remember the dialog word for word - my fellow "Rhebo's" from HCHS would be proud ... !

Python is silly and irreverent, which makes it such a nice aside from the "dumbness" of reality TV. Makes me want to keep it loaded in the DVD player so on a moment's notice I can escape the ridiculosity of now into the silly of then.

If you're thinking of getting it, just do it. You'll be glad you did when it's been discontinued and you DO have your copy ... !
