A cold war spoof, based off a mad general who wants to destroy the U.S.S.R. The President and his advisors meet in hopes of averting a nuclear war. Peter Sellers who went to the pink panther idiot to a guy in a wheel chair that looks like he take drugs. This movie has it's Iconic and funny sense.

Although it is certainly self-indulgent and wandering at times, Dr. Strangelove still reigns as one of the most biting and consistently odd examples of satire in film. The chameleon-like performances by Peter Sellers are all, in their own way, genius comic creations, and the film doesn't shy away from a harsh criticism of Cold War politics, though it gives this criticism amid absurdity.

This movie was absolutely one of the coolest movies I have ever seen. It was just such a wild watch. To think that this movie did come out during the most trying of times makes it all the better and adds to the nostalgia. Dr. Strangelove is one of the most fun characters portrayed in the film. I almost died laughing as he fought to hold back his salute. The entire movie is such a parody on international relations. It is a MUST watch for all. The Ending of the movie left me clueless, I have to say, I would love for some people to discuss the ending and what they found the meaning to be.

Another Kubrick classic but a break from his usual fare. A little scary how much more close this is to non-fiction than most people realize.

Not of the best films from the legendary directors in terms of effects and plot. The characters have endless conversations, act funny, constant malfunction of a plane while a Major (T. J. "King" Kong) rides a bomb. From beginning to end, not much was either engaging or funny. One has to respect the talents of Sellers and political message, which felt like a documentary at times. This reviewer felt this could have been if there were better humorous scenes, which is probably not one of the many strong suites of the director.

"Like all good comedies, (the) basic theme is serious" - David Stratton This aphorism is no better exemplified than in Stanley Kubrick's madcap satire 'Dr. Strangelove'. Indeed, I cannot imagine a more sombre theme than nuclear holocaust. It seems to be shorn of any convivial aspect, presuming it had any buoyant elements in the first place. With absurd characters delivering doubly absurd lines (my favourite being "you can't fight in here, this is the war room") and very controlled and studied B&W photography showing scenes of gelastic insanity, Kubrick creates the cinematic equivalent of Jonathan Swift's satirical essay 'A Modest Proposal'; and much like with 'A Modest Proposal', once you start laughing you simply: Do. Not. Stop.

You would think "precious bodily fluids" would only be funny once, maybe twice, but it got snickers every time and epitomized the absurdity of the whole situation. Is it one of the best comedies ever? It's a smart script, but great comedies call for more than 10 chuckles. It is however, one of the best opening credit sequences ever.

Stanley Kubrick tackled every single genre, and he did so with great gusto. He made scary thrillers, odd science fiction, dramatic dramas, and with this film one of the funniest comedies. Peter Sellers and George C. Scott are hysterical as the leads in the Cold War comedy where comedy only comes with ironies, parodies, and the most important: dry wit. A must see for any movie fan!

A film that rewards patience. It's one of those that gets funnier with each viewing. The comedy isn't in the amount of laughs or jokes, but rather the understanding of the politics of war and the incompetence in which they are handled. However, the antics pile up over the running time and we get a very funny send off.
