And Now for Something Completely Different

And Now for Something Completely Different, 1971. Popular sketches from Monty Python's Flying Circus, reenacted. Directed by Ian MacNaughton. Written by & starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones & Michael Palin.

Concept: 1/4 (Bad)
Story: 1/4 (Bad)
Characters: 3/4 (Good)
Dialog: 4/4 (Great)
Pacing: 3/4 (Good)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Acting: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Music: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good, 3/4). Redundant. There isn't anything here that isn't better in the TV show.  If you can ignore that fact, this is probably the best Monty Python movie.  That's a pretty big "if," though. Minus several points for the wait-didn't-this-used-to-be-a-little-bit-funnier factor.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.3/4 (Okay)
