Ah! As for me, when The Holy Grail came out, it played as a double feature (yes, Virginia, theaters used to give you two movies for one price) with Mel Brooks' The Twelve Chairs (not a classic, but still very funny) and my buddies and I, who were all college age at the time, went to see it at least a dozen times. Even after all those viewings, all I had to do was look at Patsy, Arthur's coconut clapping squire, and it would crack me up.
And now for some Shameless Promotion. Here is the beginning of a review from Amazon UK, Yes, even in the home of Monty Python, they love Boomerang:

I laughed like a drain reading Boomerang. This is a superb globe-trotting jet-setting farce that had me turning pages and staying up far too late, skipping work and finding hiding places in which I could read undisturbed.
