Abstract:

"There is no aspect of life which is too sacred for the probing Python crew. Religion, birth-control, sex, and, of course, death, get their respective dues. During the course of the film, you will learn the lyrics to six bawdy songs praising various bodily parts and functions, the true reasons for Britain going to war (it's those lovely uniforms), the proper method of sex education, complete with visual aids, and naturally, how babies are born. You will also visit a unique dining establishment where spewing forth the specialties of the house takes on an extra dimension, take part in a dinner party that's suddenly interrupted by Death, or is it Ingmar Bergman? After that, it's time to sneak a peek at Heaven. In Python Heaven, it's always Christmas, complete with Las Vegas Santa chorines and loads of aftershave for everyone. According to the Pythons themselves, The meaning of life is that which is seen from the point of view of a gudgeon or a bream, two types of small fish that are found in English waters. After all, life is a fishy sort of business at best"--Videodisc sleeve.
