The comedy team takes a look at life in all its stages in their own uniquely silly way.
After "Every Sperm Is Sacred", the film cuts to the Protestant neighbors, Harry and Mrs. Blackitt. A total of 63 children walk out of the house across the street. Several children walked out of the house more than once.
It's a Mr. Death, dear. He's here about the reaping.
In the "Live Liver Donation" scene, John Cleese is clearly chuckling at the performance of his two fellow Pythons.
In the opening credits, the title is initially written as "MEANING OF LIFF", then a lightning strike corrects that to "LIFE". A book, "The Meaning of Liff", written by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd was published in 1983.
The Director's Cut has three more scenes. The first is after the scene with the Protestant couple talking about condoms. It is the Adventures of Martin Luther. The second scene comes between the marching around the square scene and the Zulu army scene. It is a promotional video about the British army. The third and last is an extension of the the American characters that Eric Idle and Michael Palin do. They are shown their room and talk about tampons.
$1,987,000 (USA) (3 April 1983)
