These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Holy Flying Circus
This film contains examples of:
Acceptable Targets: Desmond Lovely and Gareth Nice, the fundamentalist religious protestors with devastating speech impediments (Tourettes and a heavy stutter respectively). Played with, in that although their speech problems are milked for plenty of humour, of the religious protestors they're clearly a lot nicer and more open-minded than the obnoxiously self-righteous Andrew Thorogood.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: One minute, John Cleese and Michael Palin are in Michael's study having an argument about the debate. The next, marionette versions of Cleese and Palin are having a slow-mo Hong Kong-cinema style sword fight over cheap mock-ups of the rooftops of London armed with a sword and a lightsaber respectively. Even by the standards of Monty Python, that comes right out of left-field. And then, in classic Python style, it just ends.
Ho Yay: The ongoing jokes surrounding the portrayal of Michael's wife as Terry Jones in drag; potentially John's declaration of love for Michael. Also Alan Dick kissing Harry Balls in celebration.
Refuge in Audacity: In keeping with subject matter, there's lots of this about. It basically begins with Jesus Christ declaring that the Bible is 'largely made-up' and then power-farting in the face of one of his disciples when he objects, and then goes from there.
