--> 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.

'''''Creator/MontyPython's The Meaning of Life''''' arrived in 1983 as the last hurrah of the complete six-man troupe, directed by Creator/TerryJones. The film marked the troupe's return to sketch-based comedy after two films that followed a linear plot. The film's sketches are loosely connected and arranged by the stages of human life.
