Not the Messiah-He's a very naughty boy is a movie that is a recording of the musical version of Monty Python's Life of Brian. The film includes original cast member Eric Idle as narrator and the man on the crucifix who sings Always look on the Bright Side of Life as well as Theodore Baerg, Shannon Mercer, Jean Stilwell, and Christopher Sieber in the title role as Bryan. The film begins with an Overture that is called the Liberty Bell, which is an American military march. From there begins Part 1, which deals with the chaos in the world and the need for a messiah to save the world. From there enters enters Part 2 which deals with the birth of Bryan and the three wisemen mistaking Bryan's house for that of Jesus. From there we enter Part 3, which deals with Bryan now a young man and being tempted by Judith Iscariot. Despite Judith's best efforts Bryan is not tempted by her charms. This takes us into Part 4 which is what the movie Life of Bryan was primarily based on. The people want a Messiah and they happen upon Bryan who they say is the Messiah. Bryan quickly tries to fight the people off and convince them that he is not the Messiah, despite the fact that the people refuse to listen. Finally the people have enough, which brings us into the final act Part 5. Bryan is arrested and everyone turns their backs to him as he is crucified. Fellow crucifix victim Eric Idle decides to cheer Bryan up by singing Always look on the Bright Side of Life, which the audience is invited to sing along as the words to the song are put up on the screen. The movie then ends with the classic Lumberjack Song as the parting song.
