Being There (1979)



Reviews and Comments

Being There is one of the most offbeat comedies you'll ever see. If you can figure out the movie's tone and rhythm, it's bound to be delightful and hilarious; otherwise, you may come away from it scratching your head and wondering -- which, actually, is still a positive reaction. The movie inspires thought. What is it about Peter Sellers' simple minded, possibly retarded character that everyone finds so appealing?
