Los Angeles Times:
The more things change, the more we have to laugh if we are to have a prayer of remaining sane, and the Pythons are the best possible step in that direction.
After all these years, the pungency of this satire about the perils of mass miscommunication hasn't dissipated.
There is little doubt that The Life of Brian represents some of the most daring and cutting edge comedy of the 1970s.
Funny, in that peculiar British way where jokes are told sideways, with the obvious point and then the delayed zinger.
Python successfully lampoon religious attitudes rather than religion itself.
Just as wacky and imaginative as their earlier film outings.
Still holds up beautifully, as both pointed satire and silly, stakes-free comedy.
