A Short Film with Enjoyable Characters
21 September 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

With this short film 'Let's Go Crazy' (Peter Sellers first time on screen, alongside with 'Penny Points to Paradise'), Sellers really showed from the start of his career, how funny he was when playing multiple characters, and off cause how masterminded his acting was at the same time, I'm not saying that this film is anywhere near perfect in its comedy, it just showed how capable Sellers was with creating smart and funny characters.

But if we just look away from Sellers for a moment, and look at what we else get out of this madcap of a film, and actually we get quite a lot out of 32 minutes of film. There is five songs, three orchestra numbers, one dancing number and then we get a very odd but entertaining performance by a very angry couple. To be honest I enjoyed some of the songs, just the old fifties feeling about the songs were very nostalgic, but I also think the whole film could have been much better, without all the disturbances by the orchestra and singing numbers, if we just had Sellers and Milligan playing alone, then we easily could have got an classic short film, but then again they only had three days to shoot it, so that is just me dreaming.

I just enjoyed the film for what it was, and smiled at the music performances as they came, but Peter Sellers is out of doubt the highlight of this character/music based short film, and the whole film is just a fun little pleasure to watch.

Recommended for fans of Peter Sellers!
