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.
Movie was adapted as a Broadway musical in 2006 called "Spamalot".
After Lancelot rescues Galahad from Castle Anthrax, a crew member is briefly visible shortly after the knights go around an outside corner of the castle, just before the scene ends (look on the left side of the screen). Since breaking the fourth wall does not serve a humorous purpose here, it is a goof.
On the Regions 2 and 4 DVD's (Europe and Australasia) release, the end credits are extended to three minutes (rather than 20 seconds) of a black screen with the intermission music.
On the 2001 Region 1, 2-disc DVD, the mock-Scandinavian subtitle "Mønti Pythøn ik den Hølie Gräilen" is missing. This subtitle is restored on the 2006 Region 1 "Extraordinary Deluxe Edition".
