Corrected entry: The centurion and the soldiers assisting with the crucifixion stress they are in a hurry because they have one hundred and forty people to crucify. They leave, and there are no more people waiting to be crucified, but there are less than twenty people crucified in the final scene.
Corrected entry: At the End when Brian is on the cross, After talking to him, the People's Front of Judea walk away but then stop and turn back. After singing "For he's a jolly good fellow" they clap, watch it in slow mo. For a split second, they are still clapping when the Romans approach. You see the actors that have replaced Cleese and Co.Baz94
Corrected entry: When Michael Palin is threatening the guards who are laughing at his friend Biggus, he walks up to one and gets right in his face. The guard pulls some very funny faces and if you look closely at the side of Michael's face, you can see he is trying hard not to laugh. To his credit, when he turns around, he has managed to pull himself together admirably.
Corrected entry: The song "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" once had a real-life application. On May 4, 1982, during the Falklands War, the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Sheffield was fatally struck by an anti-ship missile launched from an Argentine Air Force jet. As the crew gathered on deck for rescue, they struck up an impromptu chorus and started singing this song.
Corrected entry: When the men (and lady) are crucified, you can see throughout the whole scene a small-sized platform of which the actors are standing on.
Corrected entry: When Brian is taken to see Pontius Pilate, the centurian says "Only one survivor sir". Well, that's not true seeing as Loretta and Francis were down in the sewer when everyone except Brian were killed. And in the next scene involving the PFJ, Loretta and Francis are alive. (00:38:26)
Boring Prophet: There shall in that time be rumors of things going astray, erm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things with the sort of raffia-work base, that has an attachment. At that time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer, and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock.
