It could only take Monty Python's Flying Circus to do “A Liar's Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman,” a hilarious movie about the late Graham Chapman which hit the streets Tuesday.
Chapman's been dead for 23 years, but before he passed on, he recorded himself reading from his autobiography, which is the basis of this 85-minute film.
All the Pythons are here: John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. Others are here, too, including Robin Williams, Cameron Diaz and Stephen Fry. And in Python tradition, it's all done in animation. It's a real world Python sketch come to life. Chapman, the author of the “Dead Parrot” sketch, is resurrected in this very unusual film. The reunion you didn't think they could have has now been done.
Extras include a documentary on Chapman, voices over sessions for the film by some of the actors and the movie trailer.
