British Comedy troupe Monty Python applies their unique brand of off-the-wall humor to the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The actors play multiple parts, with Graham Chapman (“I am Arthur, King of the Britons!”), Terry Gilliam as the Bridgekeeper (“What…is your quest?”), Eric Idle as the Dead Collector (“Hang on, he says he’s not dead!”), and John Cleese as the incredibly determined Black Knight. (“It’s just a flesh wound!”) Rated PG
