Picture from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Overall C+

Based on a British TV show, this low-budget film about an Arthurian quest is one of those unusual cult classics that is still quoted and eluded to years after its 1975 release. Because it is full of inane situations, occasionally off-color dialogue, and gory slapstick violence, parents will need to carefully decide if the humor and antics are their family?s cup of tea.
