A laugh when one was needed.
12 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it was first run--in 1972, and it was just what the doctor ordered. At a stressful time in my life, Peter Sellers and crew provided for me a totally mindless romp that had me rolling in the aisle laughing. It may not be high art, but it did have something to say about the medical professions and ethics in general. Mr. Sellers, as always, played the part to perfection. I'll never forget Peter's line, "...damn broad tastes like tuna salad." The supporting cast was top-notch--the overall flavor was much like "Mash," and it is not necessary to point out where that story went over the following years. This movie provided my introduction to Jo Ann Pflug and to Pat Morita, both of whom remain on my personal list of favorites. Don't expect high art. I prescribe that you see it when you need to escape--if you can find a copy. Good luck.
