Brian Cohen is an average young Jewish man, but through a series of ridiculous events, he gains a reputation as the Messiah. When he's not dodging his followers or being scolded by his shrill mother, the hapless Brian has to contend with the pompous Pontius Pilate and acronym-obsessed members of a separatist movement. Rife with Monty Python's signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian's life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.Life of Brian featuring Graham Chapman and John Cleese is streaming with subscription on Netflix, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, available for purchase on Google Play, and 2 others. It's a comedy and cult movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 95% and a high IMDb audience rating of 8.1 (347,909 votes).
