Trik: It'll be dreadful if they bombIt'll color their entire careersThey won't be able to do any of the physical comedySo it'll be like their news skits, pub skits, the parakeet thingMaybe they can work up some modern materialUsing current news and celebs
Li'l Robbie: There aren't any fish that large. Whales don't count - they're mammals.
dajoro: What a hypocrite. He was pretty much the animator, anyway. Not a performer. And the only American. His bitter participation is not really required. Why doesn't he be a man and refuse the money, stay home, and shut up? If you don't want to sell out, don't sell out, you sell-out. And stop crapping on yourself and your friends and fans.And make a decent movie for a change.
Another Government Employee: They smell of elderberries.
LindenFark: C'mon, Terry. It's Monty Python. Selling out is fine. Part of the appeal of Python is the self-deprecating humor of how crap they were. Poking fun at low budgets and supposedly lazy writing.And as great as they were, they can never live up to the messiah-level worship that the public has retroactively anointed them with.As for being dragged back, Python achieved rock star levels of fame but never the decadent paychecks of pop kings or star athletes. Just a comfortable living, and semi-regular work. Above average for a typical actor. I can see resenting living in the shadow of greatness that wasn't even appreciated at the time it first aired, but all the surviving members have had decent careers, and going back to the well doesn't change that.
syrynxx: Compare their first, best works - ending of Sixth Sense
syrynxx: Terry Gilliam should not be talking about how to end something properly. He doesn't have a f*cking clue how to end a movie. He is probably worse than M. Shammalammadingdong. Compare their first, best works - ending of Sixth Sense - awesome. Ending of Monty Python and the Holy Grail - completely awful.
jj325: I really enjoy a lot of what Terry Gilliam has done. Time Bandits. Baron Munchausen. 12 Monkeys. Brazil. But is the guy EVER happy?
laughin: I am surprised they get along well enough to do a show.My fear is it will be like "Fierce Creatures" a "let's get the gang together for another movie" and it flops. Horribly horribly.
paulleah: Terry Gilliam has started and not finished more movies than I have watched.Watch Lost in LaMancha if you want to see how messed up he is. Plus the failures of Brazil, Baron Munchausen and read the history of The Watchmen movie and on and on....
alechemist: can we call the fish Wanda?
