Sir Guy Grand adopts homeless bum Youngman to be heir to his obscene wealth, and immediately begins bringing him into the intricacies of the family business, which is to prey upon people's greed by use of the vast holdings of the Grand empire. They leave no stone unturned as sporting events, restaurants, art galleries, and traditional pheasant hunts turn into lurid displays of bad manners and profiteering. Things climax at the social event of the season, the inaugural voyage of the new pleasure cruiser The Magic Christian.

Quirky movie13 March 2016

A bizarre movie which looks more like a series of sketches, trying to make a statement about greed, consumerism, capitalism and corruption. Has some funny moments but a little disjointed to make a lasting impression. Good cameo appearances throughout the movie.

Acidly funny but perplexing at the same time27 January 2011

That the film is like Monty Python is no accident with Graham Chapman and John Cleese doing the writing. Ringo's former Beatle companero, Paul McCartney wrote The Magic Christian theme, Come and Get It which sums up the philosophy of the film.
