King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table embark on a surreal, low-budget search for the Holy Grail, encountering many, very silly obstacles.
Terry Gilliam was originally supposed to play Sir Gawain, whose role would have consisted of repeatedly breaking the fourth wall and pointing out how special effects and other aspects of this movie's production were achieved. His role ultimately ended up being turned into Patsy, with his medium awareness jokes being summed up in the character's only speaking line: when he sees Camelot Castle, he says "It's only a model". (The stage play gives Patsy a much bigger role.)
Monk hits his head with a board before other Monks. The sound is not heard.
All the credits are at the beginning. There are no credits at the end. The screen goes black after the movie ends with the depiction of the end of the physical film reel, then organ music is played over the black screen for about 4 minutes before the movie finally ends.
The version shown on Comedy Central runs the opening credits again at the end of the film instead of the usual black screen with the music.
