* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Both the aforementioned scene with people missing the message of individuality, and the scene where the centurion corrects Brian's Latin, ignoring the fact that the phrase itself is treason (and painting on a wall is vandalism, although graffiti was an accepted method of advertisement back then). Even funnier is that the guard let Brian off after he covered ''the entire building he was tagging'' with the phrase, now written correctly.

to:

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Both At least twice. Firstly, the aforementioned scene with people missing the in which Brian's followers ignore his message of individuality, individuality and original thought to jump on the "Brian is the Messiah" bandwagon; and also the scene where the centurion corrects Brian's Latin, ignoring the fact that the phrase itself is treason (and painting on a wall is vandalism, although graffiti was an accepted method of advertisement back then). Even funnier is that the guard let Brian off after he covered ''the entire building he was tagging'' with the phrase, now written correctly.

Added DiffLines:

* PassionPlay: PlayedForLaughs and PlayedWith. ''Monty Python's Life of Brian'' is a comedy, so it shifts focus away from the brutal execution of Christ to a more humorous character who named Brian, who was born in the manger next to Jesus's. Because of their proximity, Brian ends up being mistaken for the real Messiah and gets sentenced to crucifixion by the Romans. [[spoiler:Only for those being crucified next to Brian begin whistling and singing "Always Look On the Bright Side of Life" to cheer him up.]]

** Also in a larger scale, a scene where two street prophets are haranguing their audience with hellfire and brimstone, and a third spouts incoherent meandering rambling.

** The disparate Jewish sects agitating against the Romans really were as divided in real life as they were depicted in this film.

** The disparate Jewish sects agitating against the Romans really were as divided in real life as they were depicted in this film. John Cleese, a former Latin teacher, most likely knew enough about Roman history to know this.
