Synopsis / Plot
Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyers Cut) is a 2009 documentary that covers the members of the Monty Python comedy troupe from their birth to the present day. It highlights their childhood, schooling and university life, pre-Python work and includes interviews from modern day comedians and performers that cite the troupe as an influence--including Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard, Russell Brand, and Bruce Dickinson. It is the first time in over twenty years that all five surviving Pythons (John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin) have come together for such a project. The film also includes archive footage of the late Graham Chapman. The structure of the documentary is similar to The Beatles Anthology series.

The first part focuses on The Pythons' lives before Monty Python's Flying Circus, the second part on their coming together and starting Flying Circus, the third part on the end of Flying Circus, the fourth part on their transition to film with And Now for Something Completely Different and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the fifth part on The Life of Brian and the various controversies it caused, and the sixth part on Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl, Monty Python's Meaning of Life, Graham Chapman's death and the members going their separate ways and doing projects like Spamalot.
