Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Monty Python's comedy was rated PG before the advent of PG-13. The entire vestal virgin sequence is filled with sexual innuendo and proposition -- but that's the iffiest content. Some of the rapid-fire jokes won't be detected or even understood by the youngest teens, and it's possible teens unfamiliar with this style of comedy won't get it at first, either. There's some profanity: "s--t," "p---y," "bastards," as well as words such as "tart" and "pansy." The violence is obviously fake -- lots of gushing blood and killer rabbits, for example. God is depicted in an animated segment as being tired of overly contrite and "depressing" followers.

Sexual Content

A castle full of teen vestal virgins ask to be spanked and offer oral sex to Sir Galahad. There are nude male figures during animated sequences; their backsides are shown.

Violence

Cartoonish violence -- including severed limbs and slashed throats -- and lots of fake blood. Several sword fights. A contemporary historian is comically stabbed in the throat by a knight. Comical violence throughout: A knight gets his limbs cut off but still wants to fight, and a bunny rabbit attacks knights and draws blood when it attacks. Dead bodies are shown strewn on wheelbarrows as a man yells to a village, "Bring out your dead!"

Language

Occasional profanity: "s--t," "p---y," "bastards," as well as words such as "tart" and "pansy." Comedic insults from a taunting Frenchman in which flatulence and male genitalia are referenced.

Social Behavior

Humorous characters believe they're on a mission ordained by God. One character kills indiscriminately, saying, "I can't help myself." Women are portrayed as either decrepit nags or virginal nymphs.

Consumerism
