Product Description:

The Monty Python collective explains it all in this episodic comedy that dares to take on the most "sacred" aspects of life--sex, food, politics and religion--and bring them hilariously down to earth. One of the many highlights is the "Every Sperm is Sacred" episode that opens the film.
