WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Neil Clarke (Pegg) is a disillusioned school teacher who aspires for something more interesting in his life. Unbeknownst to him, somewhere in the furthest reaches of the galaxy a group of power-crazy aliens (Cleese, Palin, Idle, Jones and Gilliam) have randomly selected him to test a strange power to do anything he desires. Sure enough, Neil starts using this new power for his own gain, including giving a voice to his dog Dennis (Williams), but soon starts struggling with how to use it and must find a way to make things right with it..
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
The five surviving members of Monty Python – as well as a final vocal performance by the late Robin Williams – reunite for the strange Python-esque tale of the responsibilities that come with great power (a message that Spider-Man can surely vouch for!).
