8. 'The Life of Brian'
Monty Python's third movie has a pretty brilliant concept: What if some other Jewish guy was born on the same exact day as Jesus Christ in the stable next door? George Harrison loved the idea so much that he personally bankrolled it just so he could see the finished product. The film is a rather mild spoof of Christianity and didn't generate nearly as much controversy as one might imagine, though some towns in England considered it blasphemous and refused to allow screenings. The film remains a cult classic, though it's most enduring legacy is the song "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." Eric Idle wrote the tune for the movie's grand finale and it's become a sing-along classic all throughout England.
