Continuity mistake: When the doctor on the right walks in the operating room he puts a glove on. A shot later it's off and he's putting it again.
The Meaning of Life (1983)
Directed by: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
Starring: John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Carol Cleveland
Continuity mistake: During The Miracle of Birth Part 1, when the guy goes into the operating room, the girl puts the gown on the first doctor. It's barely on, but, in the next, wider shot of him, it's completely on and she's tying the back together. (00:04:30)
Grim Reaper: Englishmen, you're all so fucking pompous. None of you have got any balls.
Trivia: When the title first appears, it says "Monty Python's Meaning Of Liff," which abruptly changes to "Life" with the title is struck by lightning. Author Douglas Adams (friend of Graham Chapman and occasional Python contributor) contacted Terry Gilliam to ask if he could use the title "The Meaning Of Liff" for a mock dictionary he was writing at about the same time. Adams and the Pythons agreed that the crossover publicity could be mutually beneficial. (00:17:35)
Question: Is there a fish visible in the "Where's the fish?" segment, or is it just a joke?
