The Passion Of The Brian

LOS ANGELES (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.”

Inspired by the runaway success — and public furor — over Gibson’s portrayal of the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus, the creators behind the 1979 biblical satire about an anti-Roman activist who spends his life being mistaken for a prophet are planning a 25th anniversary re-release next month.

What’s so funny about Biggus Dickus? A new generation is set to find out…

Under God?
