'Life of Brian'

The Monty Python gang got pilloried for their look at the spiritual journey of a Christ-like man named Brian, and the Christian-esque religion he inspired, with this 1979 Warner Bros. comedy. The comedy and the controversy paid off with a $20-million box-office return -- good money, in 1979.
