Just a side note--because Creator/TerryJones is, in fact, an Arthurian scholar, this happens to be not just the funniest but the [[ShownTheirWork most accurate film adaptation]] of Malory's ''Literature/LeMorteDArthur'' [[HilariousInHindsight ever made]]. Though it is not to be confused with the myths of Myth/KingArthurAndTheHolyGrail. Some of the humor, in fact, is derived from typical Pythonian spins on events and characterizations from the original tales. It also meant that Jones knew ''how'' to caricature a story already muddied by PopCultureOsmosis.

[[spoiler:Arthur and his knights prepare to storm the French castle, and are then promptly arrested by the police for the murder of a historian killed by Lancelot halfway through the film]].
