Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is a 1983 comedy film by the Monty Python team. Unlike Holy Grail and Life of Brian, this movie's two immediate predecessors, which each told a single, more or less coherent story, The Meaning of Life returns to the sketch comedy format of the troupe's original television series (and their first movie), loosely structured as a series of comic sketches about the various stages of life.
The film is divided into chapters, though the chapters themselves often contain several more-or-less unconnected sketches.

The film opened in North America...
