MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL: The Quotable & Sing-A-Long version
(PG, 1975, 91 min)

From its opening multi-language titles (that sure looks like Swedish) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Holy Grail helped to define «irreverence» and became an instant classic. The Knights of the Round Table set off in search of the Holy Grail on foot, as their lackeys make clippety-clop sounds with coconut shells. A plague-ridden community, ringing with the cry of «bring out your dead,» offers its hale and hearty citizens to the body piles. Graham Chapham, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin assumed most of the onscreen roles, while Gilliam and Jones served as co-directors.

Followed by:

30th Anniversary Screening A FISH CALLED WANDA
(R, 1988, 108 min)

Jamie Lee Curtis plays an ambitious con artist who uses every ounce of her sexual wiles to obtain a fortune in jewels stolen by her gangster lover. First, she romances Georgeson's dimwitted but deadly henchman Kevin Kline (in an Academy Award-winning performance). Then to clear the path for her getaway with Kline, Jamie woos Georgeson's starched-shirt attorney (John Cleese). Michael Palin, Cleese's former Monty Python cohort, plays a stuttering mob flunkey who continually messes up his one big assignment: killing a little old lady (It isn't that he has any qualms about knocking off the old dear, It's just that her pet dogs keep getting the way).
