Monty Python's The Meaning of Life
The Python clan are at their bawdy best as they satirize religion,
birth control, British politics, and, of course, sex.
Monty Python explains it all in this episodic
comedy that dares to take on the most "sacred" aspects of
life -- sex, food, politics and religion -- and bring them
hilariously down to earth.
A highlight: the "Every Sperm is Sacred" episode that
starts off the film.
