Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Screenplay : Graham Chapman :A foolish constancy is the hobgoblin of little minds and of some movie critics who may or may not have little minds when writing about the films of comedians. In his own day, poor old W. Fields was always being rapped for not making movies that were as funny, from start to finish, as his adoring critics found bits of them to be. I'm afraid that once or twice I've gone so far as to suggest that a certain film by Woody Allen or Mel Brooks hasn't been consistently funny, that is, that there were some parts that weren't as funny as other parts. However, as any surveyor of anything will tell you, you can't have a high spot unless you have a low one from which to survey it.
