By the end of it I was feeling a certain amount of resentment at having been had, along with Alice B. Toklas, whose name, apparently, is to become an automatic laugh, like smog and girdle.

The caricatures of hippies at best will earn cheap laughs.

Audience Reviews for I Love You, Alice B. Toklas

½

Weak tale of a successful & introverted lawyer getting cold-feet at the alter. He walks out only to begin a mid-life affair with a young pot-head his *free-living* brother introduced him to. The script writers quite obviously didn't get it.

Silly artifact of its time even though it seems it was meant to lampoon it. It does that but since what it satirizes is now so outmoded it dates terribly and seems quaint. Sellers is good as are the rest of the main cast but it all rather silly and meaningless now.

I think this must be my favourite Peter Sellers movie, it's really hilarious and very 60s, I really liked it. The story is good, a regular square guy falls in love with a hippie and it changes his life. I liked the ending too, it's good.
