Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

The Python boys' finest hour, this cult classic reworks the legend of King Arthur into a deeply silly romp featuring politically-aware peasants, Knights who say "Ni!", killer rabbits and an enchanter called Tim. Some Python fans have been known to memorise the entire film and whisper the lines as they're said on screen. Do not do this. It is deeply irritating.
