U finds ‘Meaning’ of DVD

Screenplay, lost scenes, cooking tips included

Universal Studios Home Video will answer the age-old question of why we’re here Sept. 2 with a double-disc release of Monty Python’s “The Meaning of Life” that celebrates the 20th anniversary of the film’s theatrical bow. The DVD is priced at $26.98.

The irreverent comedy addresses life’s biggest question in the way that only Monty Python can. And if the answer is unsatisfactory, DVD viewers can watch an alternate ending. The DVD also features new versions of songs “Every Sperm Is Sacred” and “The Meaning of Life,” which have been re-recorded, and deleted scenes with commentary on why they were cut. Also, an animated Martin Luther, who was edited out of the film, periodically drops in on the disc in an effort to get his sequence included.

The bonus features were created by the surviving Python members. The DVD also includes a 50-minute feature, “The History of the Meaning of Life,” guided by animated versions of characters such as Mr. Creosote, a Fish, the Headmaster and the Man in Pink and featuring interviews with John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam.

The DVD-ROM features the original screenplay, lost scenes, song sheets, Creosote cooking tips and the Pythons’ Good Death Guide.
