CNN reports that new Spamalot cast member Clay Aiken said, "The first time I saw it I thought it was the stupidest thing I'd ever seen in my entire life."
Clay, your first impression was totally right. While CNN claims, "The show is based on the film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail,'" that is true only if "based on" is taken to mean "is a gross, de-based bastardization of."
And look, I don't even think MP&THG is a great movie or anything. But at least it was genuinely funny at many points. Unlike Spamalot.
