From imdb by Stefano Bartolozzi.

The term Armata Brancaleone is still used today in Italy to define a group of people which are badly assembled. It is in fact mentioned in several dictionaries of Italian language.
From Wikipedia.

Vittorio Gassman and Gian Maria Volontè star in Mario Monicelli's Italian comedy masterpiece which predates Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), You will notice the similarty.
Highly recommended for classic Italian comedies and Monty Python fans.
