The greatest movie ever made about religion.

Even though Mena Suvari naked almost puts American Beauty on top.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

More overrated boredom. Life Of Brian would win my vote even if I hadn't seen it.

That is preferable to Graham Chapman's wang...

But you're right. LOB skewers religion as only The Pythons can. Plus it inspired He's Not the Messiah, which is itself a masterwork.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

Life of Brian is the second most ballsiest comedy ever, after Strangelove.
