** The PFJ take it in turns to be the only sane man. Reg is the only one to realise the futility of fighting for Stan's right to do something which is biologically impossible anyway. But later it's Judith who points out that Brian will be killed if they don't stop debating with each other and do something. (She is, of course, ignored.)

** Lampshaded in the scene where a centurion catches Brian writing "Romanes eunt domus" on a wall and upbraids him for his poor grasp of Latin and forces him to correct his mistakes. [[spoiler: If you're wondering, "Romanes eunt domus" is very bad Latin for "Romans go home"... it pluralizes the adjective for "Roman" and uses the incorrect tenses for "go" and "home". The corrected version, "Romani ite domum", is much more accurate.]]

%%* AccidentalHero: Brian

to:

%%* * AccidentalHero: BrianBrian manages to create a messianic following, entirely by accident. Even telling them to fuck off doesn't help.
--> '''Brian''': I'm not the messiah! Honestly I'm not!
--> '''Female follower''': Only the true messiah denies his divinity
--> '''Brian''': Well what kind of a chance does that give me? All right, I AM the messiah!
--> '''Multitude''': HE IS! HE IS THE MESSIAH!
--> '''BRIAN''': NOW.... '''FUCK OFF!'''
--> *beat*
--> '''Male follower''': How should we fuck off, O Lord?


Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheScript: Brian's mother is named Mandy, and his girlfriend's full name is Judith Iscariot. Neither is mentioned in the film itself.

Upon its release, this film drew a lot of controversy, mainly in the form of criticism from various religious groups and orders due to what was perceived as a disrespectful mockery of UsefulNotes/JesusChrist (which in turn was frequently based on the erroneous belief that Brian was intended to be/actually was Jesus, rather than just someone whose life paralleled him in several ways). Rather than mocking Jesus, however, the film actually treats the source material with a lot of respect. It just points out that UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} may have missed the point on some of what Jesus taught. It is not unheard of for the movie to be regarded as an AffectionateParody by actual ministers.

* CowardlyLion: Brian is rather pathetic, denying his Roman heritage one moment, then using it to gain leniency when the Romans catch him.
