"For all its shenanigans, Monty Python and the Holy Grail has a sense of humor that is intellectual, even academic, at heart."
- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Represents one of the best and brightest comedies ever to shine from the silver screen."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Grail is as funny as a movie can get, but it is also a tough-minded picture -- as outraged about the human propensity for violence as it is outrageous in its attack on that propensity."
- Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
