The hilarious tour de force from British sketch team Monty Python had a tough road to the championship, but it competed with aplomb. In the first round, it handily defeated Wet Hot American Summer. Next, it battled Swingers, garnering an endorsement from the writer and star of Swingers himself, Jon Favreau!

In the Final Four, The Holy Grail was pitted against the #1 seed and early favorite to win it all, The Big Lebowski, and The Holy Grail endured. Finally, the film reached the finals, going head-to-head against a film that some of said offers the most laughs-per-minute of any film in history: Airplane!  Could it win, and take home the title of best comedy of all time? You the fans answered with a resounding "yes!" as Monty Python and the Holy Grail trounced Airplane 78.4% to 21.6%!

Take a look at the final bracket, then scroll down to read through some of our favorite Monty Python and the Holy Grail quotes! And thank you for being a part of the very first Tournament of Movie Fanatic!

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Quotes

King of Swamp Castle: Listen, Alice...
Prince Herbert: Herbert.
King of Swamp Castle: Herbert...

Knights of Camelot: [singing] We're knights of the Round Table, we dance whene'er we're able. We do routines and chorus scenes with footwork impec-cable, We dine well here in Camelot, we eat ham and jam and Spam a lot. / We're knights of the Round Table, our shows are for-mi-dable. But many times we're given rhymes that are quite un-sing-able, We're opera mad in Camelot, we sing from the diaphragm a lot. / In war we're tough and able, Quite in-de-fa-ti-gable. Between our quests we sequin vests and impersonate Clark Gable / It's a busy life in Camelot
Knights of Camelot: I have to push the pram a lot.
