Crafty prime minister Count Mountjoy (Peter Sellers) comes up with a plan: Grand Fenwick will declare war on the United States. Grand Duchess Gloriana (Peter Sellers again) is hesitant: how can meek little Grand Fenwick win such a conflict? Mountjoy explains that the plan is to lose the war, then rely upon American foreign

Sátira anti-belicista que envelheceu mal e cuja relevância diz respeito apenas à performance de Sellers como a grã-duquesa de Fenwick.

Sellers distinguished himself only in his role in drag.

A welcome return to a more innocent time in geopolitics. Also be sure to catch the mod! fab! DVD preview for Dr. Strangelove.

A witty British satire about war, diplomacy and foreign policy.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

While it's easy and fair to praise Peter Sellers for his work under many guises, it's the cheeky and slightly subversive attitude of the script that kept my attention.

Sellers is great. The movie is so-so

Audience Reviews for The Mouse That Roared

A fantastic bit of classic Peter Sellers. You can always tell a good one by the fact that he plays more than one character. It's a very clever idea but it's always far to concerned with its own silliness to ever boast as much. It's that type of British nonsense that is universally appreciated that makes me proud, there just isn't enough of it around anymore and it's long overdue.

General Snippet: I warn you, madam - I know the entire Geneva Convention by heart!
Grand Duchess Gloriana: Oh, how nice! You must recite it for me some evening; I play the harpsichord.

I'm not a big fan of Sellers, but I really liked him in this movie, it's really hilarious, and he starts that trend where the same actor plays multiple characters in the same movie. The story is good too. I really liked this movie.
