Ashby delivers a film that looks and sounds mature, and then you realize it hinges on a single joke for two hours. This wouldn’t be possible without Sellers and his wonderfully bizarre performance. He mesmerizes with his simplicity and quiet gazes. Ultimately, this all may go a beat too far but the film is something to behold, for sure.

It's kind of just like Chance himself. As long as the water is still enough, you can see your own reflection whether it's an inch or a mile deep.

Not many things interesting or engaging here. For the thought experiment to work, it needed his actions and words to be slightly more than blithering idiocy, however they weren't, and this destroyed any possibility for suspension of disbelief.

There are two things going on in this film, silly humor and deep thinking. So you can laugh at the line, "I like to watch", then contemplate the meaning of the last line "life is a state of mind" as it relates to walking on water. This idea of deeper meaning might also all be part of the joke, enjoy the movie, I did.

Ashby's droll social satire perhaps overstays its welcome, but it is an original comedy-drama that's smart and surprising, presenting a cynical view of the media age that avoids contempt. Sellers is excellent as Chauncey, a simple minded gardener who by chance (get it?) finds his way into high society where his vacuous utterances are mistaken for profundity. His slow deadpan delivery is wryly amusing, and Ashby wisely focuses on his awkward interactions with others to create real ambiguity.

This movie is a lot of fun, not the least reason being that you can take quite a few lines of social commentary out of it, while it remains funny the whole way through.

Peter Sellers was one of the finest actors of all time, and that is especially true of his performance in this film. There's something unsettling and quite unfathomable about Chance the Gardener and the way he views the world, at least for a normal such as myself. But he brings a strange sort of humanity to the role that makes Chance feel less like a caricature and more like a real person.
