REVIEWS

Review by Dave Meloche (posted on 18-Sep-2005)

Monty Python fans will love this one...

This movie takes pot shots at childbirth, Catholic methods of birth control, Corporate America's compassion for Older Workers, and a lot more... including sex ed; a Soccer match, the way a person dies, and more...

The "best" (?) scene in the picture is the World's Fattest Man eating at a familiar Dining Establishment... You will Laugh and gag at the same time on this scene...HILARIOUS!

If you are not a Python fan, you will be before it's over, or "I AM DEATH" will get you, period! A Great film in the Monty Python Humor genre...
