Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python and the Holy Grail may be one of the oldest comedies on Netflix, but it has lost none of its extremely silly charm. Written and performed by the Monty Python comedy group (Chapman, John Marwood Cleese, Terrence Vance Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terence Graham Parry Jones, and Michael Edward Palin), and directed by Gilliam and Jones, the 1975 cult classic parodies the legend of King Arthur’s quest for the Holy Grail.
Wonderfully ridiculous, the British film was named as the second-best comedy of all time in the ABC special Best in Film: The Greatest Movies of Our Time. Readers of the U.K.-based Total Film magazine, meanwhile, ranked it the fifth-greatest comedy flick of all time in 2000.
