On a Midnight Clear 2000 years ago, three wise men enter a manger where a babe is wrapped in swaddling clothes. It is an infant called Brian...and the three wise men are in the wrong manger. For the rest of his life, Brian (Graham Chapman) finds himself regarded as something of a Messiah, yet he's always in the shadow of this Other Guy from Galilee. Brian is witness to the Sermon of the Mount, but his seat is in such a bad location that he can't hear any of it ("Blessed are the cheesemakers?"). Ultimately he is brought before Pontius Pilate and sentenced to crucifixion, which takes place at that crowded, non-exclusive execution site a few blocks shy of Calvary. Rather than utter the Last Six Words, Brian leads his fellow crucifixees in a spirited rendition of a British music hall cheer-up song "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life." The whole Monty Python gang (Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, and Terry Gilliam) are on hand in multiple roles, playing such sacred characters as Stan Called Loretta, Deadly Dirk, Casts the First Stone, and Intensely Dull Youth; also showing up are Goon Show veteran Spike Milligan and a Liverpool musician named George Harrison.
"Blessed are the cheesemakers," a wise man once said. Or maybe not. But the point is Monty Python's Life of Brian is a religious satire that does not target specific religions or religious leaders (like, say, Jesus of Nazareth). Instead, it pokes fun at the mindless and fanatical among their followers--it's an attack on religious zealotry and hypocrisy--things that that fellow from Nazareth didn't particularly care for either. Nevertheless, at the time of its release in 1979, those who hadn't seen it considered it to be quite "controversial." Life of Brian, you see, is about a chap named Brian (Graham Chapman) born December 25 in a hovel not far from a soon-to-be-famous Bethlehem manger. Brian is mistaken for the messiah and therefore manipulated, abused, and exploited by various religious and political factions. And it's really, really funny. Particularly memorable bits include the brassy Shirley Bassey/James Bond-like title song; the bitter rivalry between the anti-Roman resistance groups, the Judean People's Front and the People's Front of Judea; Michael Palin's turn as a lisping, risible Pontius Pilate; Brian urging a throng of false-idol worshippers to think for themselves--to which they reply en masse "Yes, we must think for ourselves!"; the fact that everything Brian does, including losing his sandal in an attempt to flee these wackos, is interpreted as "a sign." Life of Brian is not only one of Monty Python's funniest achievements, it's also the group's sharpest and smartest sustained satire. Blessed are the Pythons. --Jim Emerso

Leave it to MTV to create their own boy band spoof - and make them one of the hottest-selling acts today! The original movie that introduced 2Ge+her to teens everywhere is now available on home video! Contains exclusive interviews, 2Ge+hers' TRL guest appearance, and a bonus music video! 95 Minutes.
In a just world, this dead-on parody would be the final, funny word on the boy-band phenomenon. If you love the music of the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync, you'll enjoy 2Ge+her. And if you hate color-by-numbers hits from cookie-cutter musical acts, you'll have even more reason to love this film. Sure it's formulaic--that's the whole point. Take the "mockumentary" format pioneered by Spinal Tap, subtract the decline of heavy metal, add that contemporary Real World/Road Rules sensibility (only seven days to form a hit boy band!), and multiply that by a handful of wickedly funny yet seriously catchy songs, and you've got this movie. It's hard to know if any of the strategically chosen five members--the Rebel, the Heartthrob, the Little One, the Shy Guy, and the chunky, balding Older Brother--ever expected their fiendishly fleshed-out portrayals of some seriously cardboard stereotypes to launch a genuine pop phenomenon. But after the final credits roll, extra footage shows the band's eerily triumphant live appearance on MTV's ultimate boy-band showcase, Total Request Live, and interviews detail the actors' pleased surprise at becoming yet another one of those bands "prepubescent girls throw their retainers at," in spite of such obviously sarcastic songs as "Say It, Don't Spray It." No matter how you feel about today's prefab pop, by the time you've watched this video to its end, you will find yourself humming 2Ge+her's hit single, "U+Me=Us (Calculus)." The level of irony behind it is up to you. --Grant Balfour

Acclaimed director John Landis (Animal House, The Blues Brothers) presents this madcap send-up of late-night TV, low-budget sci-fi films and canned-laughter-filled sitcoms packed with off-the-wall sketches that will have you in stitches. Centered around a television station which features a 1950s-style sci-fi movie interspersed with a series of wild commercials, wacky shorts and weird specials, this lampoon of contemporary life and pop culture skewers some of the silliest spectacles ever created in the name of entertainment. A truly outrageous look at the best of the worst that television has to offer.
