Three Men in a Boat is a 1975 BBC comedy film adapted by Tom Stoppard, directed by Stephen Frears and starring Tim Curry, Michael Palin, and Stephen Moore. It is based on the 1889 novel Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome.

Michael Palin played in this film just as he was establishing his post-Monty Python career, and the film has "glints of Python-like silliness throughout".[1]
