Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is a 1983 musical comedy film by the Monty Python comedy team. Unlike the two previous films they had made, which had more or less each told single, coherent stories, The Meaning of Life returns to the sketch comedy format of the troupe's original television series, loosely structured as a series of comic skits about the various stages of life. It is known for being the darkest, and most disturbing of the 'Python' films. Quentin Tarantino himself has admitted to being "nauseated" by some of the film's repulsive, and extremely vulgar scenes, particularly the Mr. Creosote sequence.
