The meaning of life was the Monty Python team last movie. This movie is very similar to the Monty Python’s Flying circus shows because it is built up as a row of small sketches. There isn’t a storyline throughout the film but often there is a connection between the sketches. Basically it is about life, from birth to death. The film is full of religious, vulgar, and sexual humor that may offend some groups. There are even musical numbers, but with that same old Monty Python humour.
