Monty Python unleashes the theatrical re-release (or second coming) of Life of Brian, the troupe's quasi-Biblical saga of an inept, reluctant messiah (Graham Chapman) who happened to be born on the same night as Jesus. Director Terry Jones, along with regulars Michael Palin, John Cleese and Eric Idle, take multiple roles in an irreverent religious satire that raised the ire of church groups from coast to coast when originally released.
