Your favorite movie?!
If you answer anything other than this one, you'll be thrown off the Bridge of Death.

One of the funniest movies ever made
If you like any of the Monty Python bits or other movies, then this is a must own. In fact if you like to laugh this is a must own.
This twisted tale of Arthur and the Knight of the Round Table set with a modern murder investigation will have you in stitches from beginning to end. There is no doubt this is the crown jewel of the Monty Python works and is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.
The bonus material is amazing and hysterical. The quest of the locations and on location featurettes are fantastic. To boot there is a special feature with the killer bunny, sing alongs, a DVD-ROM feature with links and a paperback of the script. Even the bonus material is a spoof of bonus materials.
Don't think of this as a purchase, think of it as an investment. Every penny is money well spent and will deliver countless returns in the form of laughs, one-liners and conversation bits for the rest of your life (or until DVD format no longer works).Read full review

Great movie! A classic by all means! A must watch and must have! All the extras: the Collector's Edition is great as well!

Funniest movie ever made, hands down #1.
Here are my favorite movies... if you like the others but haven't seen this one.... drop what you are doing and get it NOW!
1. The Evil Dead 2. My all-time favorite movie. I've seen this movie about 20 times, in fact my family usually watches it every Halloween. It's a classic, what can I say? It's funny and scary, and Bruce Campbell is astounding. Army of Darkness is the sequel, and it's almost as good. Dead by Dawn, Dead by Dawn!
2. Monty Python and the Holy Grail. This is a tough list, since I'm mixing genres. But, I don't have any doubt that this is hands-down the funniest movie ever made. Every time I watch this I'm rolling on the floor. If you don't think this movie is funny, you should exit this site now!
3. Natural Born Killers. Well, I can say without a doubt, that Quentin Tarentino is my favorite writer/director. But, it was still a brainstorm to let Oliver Stone direct this one. And the casting... who would have seen Woody Harrelson from Cheers as the perfect psychopathic killer? This version on DVD, in particular, is awesome for the extra footage. Entire characters, including Ashley Judd and Dennis Leary were cut out - the extra scenes add a whole extra hour to the movie! Sick movie, but I never get tired of it.
4. Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarentino will have the most movies in my top 100 as writer and director, and many will say that this is his best movie (although I personally like NBK better). Every actor he casts in a movie is catapulted to fame, and/or their careers are revived. After seeing this movie, it's no wonder that John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman are "A"-list. Then you add in Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Christopher Walken.... sheesh, how could this not be in my top 5?
5. Total Recall. Arnold Schwarzenegger is not the greatest actor, but he did an incredible job picking movies. He has a lot of great movies; you are going to see a few more in my top 100. But there is no doubt in my mind that this is, and will remain, his best movie. The collectors edition is really nice, in a tin can that looks like Mars!
6. The Usual Suspects. This movie is amazing, the first time I saw it... right when it ended I watched it again. It was just as good the second time. Kevin Spacey and Gabriel Byrne are two of my favorite actors, but actually this entire cast is fantastic. I guess this would be considered a crime movie, and yes - I liked it better than Goodfellas, Scarface and The Godfather!
7. Army of Darkness. The second movie from Bruce Campbell in my top 10, an amazing follow-up to Evil Dead II.
8. True Romance. The third movie by Quentin Tarentino in my top 10, and it's a solid entry. Not his most well known movie, but an all time classic in my book. With stars like Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper and Brad Pitt I guess I should have expected as much.
9. The Terminator. I think a lot of people's favorite movies are influenced by how their life was going when they first saw the movie that they are reviewing. As I mentioned above, I don't count Arnold S. as one of the finest actors of all time, but this is his second movie in my top 10. I was at a good place in my life when this came out, and it blew me away. I'm sure glad my name isn't Sarah Connor.
10. Star Wars Trilogy. Most of my friends think this is my favorite movie of all time, and it's actually #10!Read full review

Lunatic comedy at it's best!
Loony, crazy and hilarious movie!!! After seeing it over 30 times I still can't get enough of it! The 2nd disk is great, with features like parts of the original cast tracing the path in Scotland of the places and castles where the movie was made.
