Life of Brian
June 16, 2017 12:56am CST
In Monty Python's 1979 comedy, Life of Brian (directed by Python member Terry Jones,) Brian Cohen (Graham Chapman) has the misfortune to be born next door to Jesus, on the same night. Eventually, through a series of mishaps, Brian gets mistaken for the Messiah and unwillingly develops a following. After joining an underground organization called The People's Front of Judea, Brian is eventually captured by the Romans and is interrogated by Pontius Pilate (Michael Palin.) Brian escapes, but it's while on the run from the Romans that he is mistaken for the Messiah. As was their custom, all of the Pythons play multiple roles (Palin's Pilate being, in my opinion, the movies' funniest character in the funniest scene. And that's saying something, considering that the movie is chock full of funny scenes.) This is one funny movie (it is Monty Python, after all.) I remember a years ago television interview with John Cleese, who declared Life of Brian Monty Python's best movie. I'd have to agree. Be aware of a couple of scenes that feature full nudity if that would offend you. (Info verified by Wikipedia)

When I was dx'ed with cancer and told I "have six months," my favorite cousin, Danny, and I got to talking. He shared the scene from the crucifixion with me. "Always look on the bright side of Life" has become my favorite all-time song about "life" EVER!! I should probably watch the whole movie sometime.
