“THE MEANING OF LIFE is a monumental revue, the Ben Hur of sketch films… [it] recalls the format of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, those wonderfully irreverent television shows — collections of mad sketches, surreal graphics and interruptions within interruptions — with which they made their initial reputation. It has a theme of sorts, as defined by the title, but it’s still an extremely loose collection of sketches, songs and interruptions that send up sex, religion, middle-class manners, upper-class twits, all things genteel and, perhaps for the first time on screen, goldfish that talk.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
