John Cleese movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘A Fish Called Wanda,’ ‘Monty Python’
John Cleese celebrates his 80th birthday on October 27, 2019. Best known as a member of the British comedy troupe Monty Python, the Oscar-nominated funnyman has made a number of comedies that remain cinematic classics. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 12 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1939 in Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, England, Cleese rose to prominence thanks to the British sketch series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” which ran for four seasons on the BBC from 1969-1974. The troupe — which also included Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin — revolutionized comedy with their surreal, experimental sketches, the best of which were assembled into the film “And Now for Something Completely Different” (1971). This led to other cinematic outings, including “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (1975), “Life of Brian” (1979) and “The Meaning of Life” (1983).
