  1. Now someone should do a film about Fatima as a trans woman. Shake things up a little.

  2. M27Holts says:

    Those wacky python dudes should have done a sequel to Life of Brian…My Struggle….starring Mo Ham Head….

  3. Oozoid says:

    I have seen the film. It is Shi-ite. But courageous.

  4. jveeds says:

    Thanks Oozoid for the heads up! There is in fact a 2021 movie called “The Lady of Heaven” which is being protested by Sunni’s; however there are also some Shiites protesting. The reason there are fatwas banned it are said to be because it deepens the disagreement in the Islamic nation between Sunnis and Shiites.

    It’s not clear whether the movie is currently available on any streaming source or DVD.


  5. jveeds says:

    *fatwas banning it

  6. Rrr says:

    Oozoid: At first I took your post as a review of the film. Maybe not quite that?

  7. Wayne Campbell says:

    Well Shia! Of course they’re complaining. Way!

  8. mcalex says:

    I like spelling the article’s writer’s name backwards.

    Lol, the piece talks about a plotline in the movie and tells about how “two of the Prophet’s closet companions were responsible for an assault”

    I’m surprised “The T&A” newspaper hasn’t been subject to protests

  9. M27Holts says:

    They do not respect our faith or our sanctities, and when we get angry [and defend] our religion and our Messenger, they say we are terrorists.” Omar Hindawi wrote, “This film should be banned…..what a fookin whopper….

  10. M27Holts says:

    And anyway terrorist is a euphemism…I would use the term “murdering brainless deluded fuck-wits”….

  11. That guy over there says:

    I noticed that one of the protester yelled “We have a right not to be insulted.” No. No you don’t. Neither do I have a right not to be insulted by your shenanigans. Stop being 5 years old please.

    What unites Sunnis and Shiites?
    Anagram generator says that sentence yields
    swinish enthusiasts inundate.

  13. M27Holts says:

    To be fair. When me and my droogs went to see LOB in 1979, we were shouted at by a crowd of about 15-20 indignant xtian fundamentalists calling on us to be-saved and avoid blaspheming against Jebus and damning our souls to the pits of hell…we just sailed on in and enjoyed the 90 minutes of python wackiness…great film, very funny…end of…

  14. M27Holts says:

    LOB was banned in ROI for 8 years!

  15. Rrr says:

    I think LOB was also banned in Norway; don’t know for how long.
    I took a long lunch break from work and watched it on a matinée in Stockholm, with a colleague.

  16. M27Holts says:

    1 year apparently…

  17. Anonymous says:

    Since LOB was named in the ROI, how is it that they didn’t make a fuss about Father Ted?

    Thanks to M27Holts, I’ve now enjoyed the first series and a couple of episodes of the second and it seems every bit as subversive to Catholic feelings as LOB.

    I particularly enjoyed Graham Norton as the insane priest in the caravan holiday episode. The sewage spew at the end of that is every bit as heart warming as the inverted bucket of vomit in the Meaning of Life.

  18. Laripu says:

    Sorry, that one above was me. I forgot to put the name.

    Strangely, when I write about Father Ted, I find myself thinking with a light Irish accent. It’s even more strange because I don’t think I could imitate one of I tried.

  19. M27Holts says:

    They would have made more (fr Ted) but the eponymous character actor dropped dead at a family party very shortly after the completion of its last series…sad end but not unknown for heavy drinkers and smokers to die prematurely from massive heart attack…and he is most certainly resting in peices…

  20. M27Holts says:

    Aye Demot Morgan only 45 when he died in the late 90’s…

  21. M27Holts says:

    Yo Laripu, you can try “Friday Night Dinner” next – very funny also…

  22. Laripu says:

    M27Holts, I started watching it when you mentioned it the first time. I’ve seen three episodes. They’re are funny bits but it seems a bit repetitive. These occurred multiple times: neighbor with dog, salt in water, father with no shirt, non-existent girlfriend, sons insulting each other, car problems, food insulted as squirrel.

    There were two completely unbelievable things too. The first was when they showed up at the pub without any money. They had come in a car, so must have had a wallet with a driver’s license and credit cards. The other unbelievable thing was serving the casserole even though it had fallen on the floor.

    So while it’s not a good as Father Ted, there are enough laughs to keep me going. Also, I like the dog.

    There are also very good parts, for example the interaction between the mother and grandmother. I’d like to see that again.
