Monty Python and the Holy Grail Fandoms


Monty Python and the Holy Grail isn't called a cult classic for nothing. This movie has an incredibly large and dedicated fan base, and it's not just a bunch of sixty year-olds remembering the good old days when things were really funny. The movie's loved even by the young'uns.

Seriously, what other low budget British comedy from the seventies do people born in the '90s even know about? There's even an app that takes you behind the scenes into the making of the film. (Show your parents how to use it.)

Part of the reason why The Holy Grail is burned so thoroughly into American and British minds is that the film is filled with classic one-liners that are seriously quotable. The internet is filled with "Top 10 Quotes" sites like this one from the Boston Globe.

One fan took the time to edit the trailer and make it into a serious movie. There are fan-made Lego sets, fan-made Lego music videos, a Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog plush toy, and even a book about Monty Python fandom itself.

There's also plenty of more scholarly work to read if you want to take your love of the movie even more seriously. You can check out our "Best of the Web" section for more.
