A collection of skits that further show how Monty Python’s flair for hilarity have made British comedy popular the world over. The various skits all deal with popular and controversial viewpoints on the matter of reproduction and the stages of life that follow, with musical numbers being thrown in for good measure. Some bits are tiresome, but some are exceptionally funny (particularly the Catholic-minded song about every sperm being sacred).
