Monty Python and the Holy Grail
King Arthur, accompanied by his squire, recruits his Knights of the Round Table, including Sir Bedevere the Wise, Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot and Sir Galahad the Pure. On the way, Arthur battles the Black Knight who, despite having had all his limbs chopped off, insists he can still fight. They reach Camelot, but Arthur decides not to enter, as "it is a silly place".

"This movie is so dumb it’s funny. It’s good but dumb"
"“First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thou foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.” – Monk My favorite quote of one of my favorite movies of all time. Nothing beats absurd British humor and nobody does it better than the boys of The Holy Grail. Great natural sets in the countryside and in castles and plagued villages. Taunting Frenchmen, fine shrubbery for The Knights That Say "Ni", coconut cantering, horn3 beauties, and "It's-just-a-flesh-wound" Knight. Man eating rabbits, "I'm not dead" plague victims, and rousing musical numbers. I can't get enough of this movie. I just watched it for the umpteenth time last night with my daughter, who was a newbie to this masterpiece, and it won't be my last! If you don't think British absurdist comedy is funny, this isn't the show for you. "Run away!""
