I can't answer to your question. At the age I saw it for the first time I couldn't speak English at all. I bet there are some puns and parodies I could not still make sense of. I can say that I found it to be enjoining enjoying*, and I could at least understand some of the parodies of prior movies, as I did for "Top Secret" (probably the best in the genre), and the much more recent "Hot Shots" series, etc.

What astonished me most is that I enjoined enjoyed* href://|Life of Brian] too -- I saw it in Italian, haven't seen it in English yet. Without having seen it, I dare to say that the translators did an excellent job. It is still full of witty puns. Incidentally it is absolutely interesting to note that it could come out in Italy not earlier than some ten year later than in Britain. Don't know about other countries...

    Interesting. Your spell checker didn't catch "enjoin", because it's technically a valid word plus a valid prefix. To "enjoin" would be to connect two things, which doesn't make sense in the context of movies. The word you probabably want is "enjoy". Hope this helps: your English is otherwise quite understandable. :-)

      Actually, it's a valid word in its own right.

      It might be, if it didn't already have the meaning of "prohibit" or "impose with authority". Courts do it.
