‘Monty Python’s Life of Brian’ 30-Second Summary
Over 2000 years ago, three wise men entered a manger where a babe named Brian was wrapped in swaddling clothes… and the three wise men were in the wrong manger. For the rest of his life, Brian finds himself regarded as something of a Messiah, yet he’s always in the shadow of this Other Guy from Galilee. Brian is witness to the Sermon of the Mount, but his seat is in such a bad location that he can’t hear any of it. Ultimately he is sentenced to crucifixion, which takes place at that crowded, non-exclusive execution site a few blocks shy of Calvary. Rather than utter the Last Six Words, Brian is treated to a spirited rendition of Always Look On The Bright Side of Life.
