When’s the last time you’ve laughed so hard it hurt? I mean really, really hurt – like where your gut is screaming in agony and your throat feels like you’ve been gargling liquid sandpaper? Isn’t it time you let loose and giggled again? This March, join us for two screenings of MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE in Houston. We'll have an EMT standing by.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, THE MEANING OF LIFE is the final film to feature the full line-up of the legendary British comedy troupe. Released in 1983, the movie was a return to the group’s sketch comedy background. A rambling series of sometimes offensive, always hilarious sketches loosely tied around the search for a meaning to it all, the film explored everything from birth to sex to death and beyond – packing in plenty of bodily fluids to go around.
This is not a movie for the weak – it’s guaranteed to give you a tiny but inescapable headache from an excessive amount of snickering. You’re going to need to put some ointment on your knees from slapping them so hard. At the very least, you are quite possibly going to need to bring a barf bag because this movie piles on the funny and then shoves in one more wafer thin mint of comedy gold that will leave you an exploded husk – your funny bones jutting out in all kinds of scary, medically-implausible angles.
THE MEANING OF LIFE has it all – songs, dances, excessive nudity, men in tiger costumes and fish with human heads. You’ll see the secrets of the afterlife, learn to fear the elderly and develop a newfound appreciation for even the smallest sample of sperm.
We’re screening the film twice – both times from a new digital restoration from Universal Studios. And that digital restoration will come in handy too – the extra clarity of sight and sound helping to overcome your tear-filled eyes and the sound of your own bellowing guffawing throughout the film.
