This was huge let down like Young Frankenstein. It's sporadically. It's not funny from start finish. I laughed maybe 3 times. One of them was the "it's just a flesh wound" scene. That was so fucking hilarious. I saw this twice and still not enough laughs to qualify as a comedy in my book. And I love spoof comedies like Airplane!, or Naked Gun. This one didn't cut it.

We Are The Knights Who Say Ni! Classic comedy coming from someone who normally HATES these types of movies!

A very amusing film. An icon of comedy, as well as Monty Python's magnum opus.

A comedy masterpiece that had me laughing the whole way through. Though, I wouldn’t rank it as high as others. Not that I think it’s overrated; Not at all, just that there’s many better films then it.

Brilliant! I had a great time with this film. I do find it very unreasonable though that it's ranked higher than the Lord of the Rings and the Matrix (much better films imo) but it's still a classic and deserves a spot in the top 100
