The Meaning of Life Trailer (1983)

"It took God six days to create the earth, and Monty Python just 90 minutes to screw it up." 31 March 1983 Comedy 107 mins

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is a 1983 musical comedy film by the Monty Python comedy team. Unlike the two previous films they had made, which had more or less each told single, coherent stories, The Meaning of Life returns to the sketch comedy format of the troupe's original television series, loosely structured as a series of comic skits about the various stages of life.
