Movie Info

While trying to tie his shoe, bumbling extra Hrundi V. Bakshi (Peter Sellers) unwittingly triggers explosives that destroy the set of an epic war film. The furious director tells executive Fred Clutterbuck (J. Edward McKinley) to fire him. Because of a misunderstanding, Bakshi instead mistakenly receives an invitation to an exclusive party at Clutterbuck's Hollywood mansion, where he proceeds to wreak havoc on partygoers as he stumbles through what will become the wildest night he's ever seen.

Audience Reviews for The Party

    A largely improvised slapstick comedy that has no actual plot, only a series of random situations relying on Peter Sellers's capacity for making us laugh with mostly physical gags, and as such it manages to be funny at times, whereas more often it can be just silly instead.

    Starts off good then it gets boring & after that annoying, So does Peter Sellers, Longet is annoying from the start & oh that irritating drunk waiter,he was supposed to be funny, right?, The film turns into one irritating unfunny mess in its ending

    If you want to see Sellers playing an Indian who roams around someone's party doing stupid things all night, then see this movie, but if you're like me and don't think that's funny, I wouldn't recommend seeing this movie.
