LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Coming back soon to a theater near you -- a controversial film about a Jewish guy from Nazareth who is worshiped as the Messiah and crucified by the Romans.
No, it's not Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ." It's Monty Python's "Life of Brian."
Go ahead and read the whole story here.
If there's any justice in the world, Life of Brian will provoke mass hysteria and protests, propelling the film to the stratospheric take of $100 million or more at the domestic box office. It's easily my favorite Python film. Yes, I can quote Holy Grail line for line (mostly) like a true geek, but Life of Brian is just as funny--if somewhat less silly, with the exception of the alien joyride scene--and the film deals with some weighty subject matter.
And thus the filmgoing masses have spoken: We-Welease Bwian!
