Added DiffLines:

* ExcusePlot: Why is the film about The Meaning Of Life? Because it was the broadest subject the Python's could come up with that would allow them to go back to random sketches.

* GagBoobs: Unusually, it's not because of their ''size''. In the "Christmas in Heaven" number, all of the apparently-topless dancing girls are wearing fake plastic breasts. The plan was originally to have them be topless, but it was decided that plastic breasts would be a lot funnier.

The plan was originally to have them be topless, but it was decided that plastic breasts would be a lot funnier. It was also out of necessity, as not all of the actresses had the same-sized breasts.

* RugbyIsSlaughter: A boarding school holds a rugby match pitting little boys against grown men. As if that weren't brutal enough, when a boy finally gets to make a try, a teacher trips him from the sidelines. To further underline the point, the scene segues directly into a WorldWarOne segment.

* TheMeaningOfLife: The film says this about the meaning of life.
--> It's nothing special. Try to be nice to people. Avoid eating fat. Read a good book now and then. Get some walking in. Try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: The Python's American accents are either [[SoBadItsGood hilariously bad]] or painfully bad.



* UsefulNotes/UnionsInHollywood: The Pythons got complaints from Actors' Equity when making the film because they claimed that playing multiple roles was putting actors out of work. Terry Gillaim pointed out that scenes like "Christmas in Heaven" actually employed lots of extras.

* NippleAndDimed[=/=]ThongOfShielding: One sketch shows a man slated for execution, who chose to be chased off a cliff to his death by a thundering horde of models wearing nothing but boxing helmets, G-string panties, socks, and football cleats. Nothing is censored, either.
