In a word, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is ingenious. Probably one of the most quotable movies ever, Monty Python has stood the test of time. Almost 25 years after it first came out, Monty Python is still regarded as one of the funniest movies of all time. The entire film is a spoof of the numerous legends surrounding King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. What makes this film so smart is the sheer innovation and daring of it, but what more do you expect from one of the greatest comedy troupes of all time? One of these innovations is the long-time running gag “breaking the fourth wall,” in which the bridge between the audience and the actors is destroyed, and there is no longer a distinct line between the film itself and the production taking place offscreen.

In fact, just see for yourself.

One of the many classic scenes in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
