Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (1983)

R 03/31/1983 (US) Comedy 1h 47m

It took God six days to create the earth, and Monty Python just 90 minutes to screw it up.


Life's questions are 'answered' in a series of outrageous vignettes, beginning with a staid London insurance company which transforms before our eyes into a pirate ship. Then there's the National Health doctors who try to claim a healthy liver from a still-living donor. The world's most voracious glutton brings the art of vomiting to new heights before his spectacular demise.
