And Now for Something Completely Different [DVD] [1971]

  • SKU: 3700445
  • Release Date: 08/03/1999
  • Rating: PG
The first Monty Python film, which is little more than a collection of sketches from Flying Circus that were restaged for film cameras, comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame transfer. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include filmographies of the cast and crew. Fans of the group will love the disc, although they may be left wanting some more extras.

    Synopsis


    And Now for Something Completely Different
    Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different was first released in the US in 1973, but didn't really take off as a midnight-movie fixture until after the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV series began making the PBS rounds. Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam are the Pythonites in attendance, together with semiregulars Carol Cleveland and Connie Booth. The sketches presented include such classics as "The Lumberjack Song", "Hell's Grannies", "The Upperclass Twit of the Year Race", and, of course, "The Dead Parrot". Additionally, Terry Gilliam's animated-cartoon interpolations act as buffers between sketches. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Best Monty Python Movie

      I was not a huge Monty Python fan until I saw this film - it is absoluetly fantastic! I have never been a big British Humor kind of girl, but these guys really got it. They were probably the best comedy troupe to grace us with their presence! This is my favorite Monty Python movie, although holy Grail really gave it a run for it's money. Even though the movie lacks a clear plot, which in turn IS the plot, it is very easy to follow along with because there is nothing to follow along with! It is the perfect film about nothing that makes fun of everything!
