The reunion of the Monty Python team on stage for the first time in over 30 years, and for the last time ever, was the most anticipated production of 2014. Filmed on the final night of the run of ten sold out performances, live at London's O2 Arena on 20 July, Monty Python Live (mostly) - One Down Five to Go sees the five surviving members - John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin - together with Carol Cleveland, perform many of their classic sketches and much-loved songs. The show also encompasses film inserts from Monty Python's Flying Circus, Terry Gilliam's iconic animations, outrageous dance routines by an ensemble of twenty and a fantastic live orchestra. Featuring Stephen Hawking and Professor Brian Cox, with guest appearances by Eddie Izzard and Mike Myers, the show cements the Python's reputation as the most influential comedy group of all time and, more importantly, still one of the funniest. All the favorites, with some modern twists, are included: the Dead Parrot, the Lumberjack Song, the Spanish Inquisition, Spam, Nudge Nudge, Argument, the Four Yorkshiremen, the Bruces and with a sing-along of Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life as the grand finale. Monty Python Live (mostly) - One Down Five to Go is the ultimate Monty Python show.

What About Dick? begins with the birth of a sex toy invented in Shagistan in 1898 by Deepak Rushdie Obi Ben Kingsley, and tells the story of the subsequent decline of the British Empire as seen through the eyes of a Piano. The Piano narrates the tale of Dick; his two cousins: Emma, an emotionally retarded English girl; her kleptomaniac sister Helena and their dipsomaniac Aunt Maggie who all live together in a large, rambling, Edwardian novel. When the Reverend Whoopsie discovers a piano on a beach, a plot is set afoot that can be solved only by a private Dick, the incomprehensible Scottish sleuth Inspector McGuffin who with the aid of Sergeant Ken Russell finally reveals the identity of the Houndsditch Mutilator.

Seemingly cured of her obsession with puppy fur, Cruella is released after going through therapy to help her see puppies as friends not fur. She works at an animal shelter with Chloe Simon and her Dalmatians. It works until she hears the striking of Big Ben and begins reverting to her old ways. She then teams up with a clothing designer and they come up with the number of puppies she needs to make the grandest fur coat, 102 Dalmatian puppies. Cruella and her cronies wrangle up puppies from all around England. They come from homes, pet shops, and from the family of Dalmatians that she tried taking before. She takes Chloe’s puppies Little Dipper, so named because the tip of his tail is black, and Domino who has domino like spots on his ears. She leaves behind their sister, Oddball, because she doesn’t have any spots on her all white coat. Kevin Shepherd a dog lover who runs the rescue center, tries to stop Cruella from taking all the puppies to Paris. Kevin ends up in jail after Cruella frames him as the one who stole the puppies. There is another hero, and that is the puppy Oddball. Along with a few other animal friends, including a Bullmastiff named Drooler, a Macaw who thinks he is a dog named Waddlesworth, and a Borzoi named Digger. These animals come together to save the Dalmatians from being made into a fur coat when Cruella is made into a giant cake. At the end of the film, Oddball finally gets her spots and isn’t so odd after all. This film was produce by Walt Disney Pictures.
