I enjoyed it...extremely funny. On thing I noticed was that at times the actors seemed to be having too much fun delivering punchlines, IMO. One of the aspects of Python that makes them so funny is that they deliver most of their lines extremely deadpan.
However, I did see it in preview, and they were probably still working on cast chemistry.
They also blew the "Killer Rabbit scene" the night I went...which led to Azaria -- staying in his Tim the Enchanter character/accent "Oooh, that worked much better in rehersal"
