The culmination of [Richard Lester's] career to date.

Anything goes, so in the long run nothing much goes, and we're left with actors scampering through charades whose import becomes vaguer with every wild-eyed hit or miss apparition.

Apocalyptic or prophetic cinema, whether it is in the form of science fiction or farce, demands more than picturesque sets and costumes and a decent, concerned sensibility.

All of the characters are mad, of course, but that's not the point; this isn't a heavy-handed anti-war parable, but a series of sketches that gradually grow more and more grim.

One of [Lester's] best efforts, a remarkably sharp and deadly satire.

Exactly as dark and surreal as you would imagine a post-apocalyptic black comedy by Spike Milligan would be.

Lester is quite at home in this surreal world.

A field day for funny collection of Brits.

An inspired piece of madness which, strangely, has improved with age.

The Bed Sitting Room is a film which is going to annoy a number of people, amuse but puzzle a like number, and tickle the hell out of a small but. passionately vociferous group, which includes me.

A play by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus serves as an ideal springboard for an offbeat anti-war film by Richard Lester which, miraculously, manages to convey its grim message with humor.

With over a thousand gags that had only a handful work.

This example of post-apocalyptic absurdism sits midway between The Goons and Threads.
