Best: Monty Python And The Holy Grail (1975)
The first original film from the Monty Python chaps (we’re not counting the sketch-influenced And Now For Something Completely Different ), Holy Grail remains as bonkers and hilarious as anything the comedy troupe have ever produced.
That poll we did back in 2000 for the best comedies ever? This was number five. Its influence is still felt today, with Shrek The Third and even Star Trek paying it homage over the years.
