Entertainment Weekly - 06/23/2006
"Peter Sellers summons pitch-perfect body language as a lawyer seduced by hippie culture." -- Grade: B

Description by OLDIES.com:

One day you're a career 9-to-5er with a pending marriage. The next, you chuck it all for beads, bell-bottoms and free love. That's how things are for Harold Fine, a dedicated lawyer about to become a more dedicated dropout.

Like the brownies served by Harold's new girlfriend, I Love You, Alice B. Toklas has a hidden magical ingredient: Peter Sellers, whose flower-power performance here is in the same league as Dr. Strangelove, Inspector Clouseau and other "best Sellers." Director Paul Mazursky and his co-writer Larry Tucker spread good vibes aplenty as Harold discovers tuning in and turning on can turn out daffily disastrous. Leigh Taylor-Young and Jo Van Fleet co-star in this Age-of-Aquarius time capsule that's timeless fun.

Product Description:

The chameleon-like Peter Sellers (DR. STRANGELOVE, THE PINK PANTHER) plays Harold Fine, a mild-mannered Jewish lawyer rapidly approaching middle-age. He has an overbearing mother, a bland fiancÚ, and a life that seems doomed to be forever "square." His world flips upside down when he runs into Nancy (Leigh Taylor-Young), a groovy flower-power girl who cooks a mean batch of "hash brownies." Faster than you can say "Helter-Skelter," Harold grows out his hair, trades in his briefcase for bellbottoms, and dives into the free-lovin' scene of the swinging sixties. Eventually, however, Harold has to face that fact that he's not completely cut out for the hippie lifestyle. Filled with humor and sly insight, I LOVE YOU ALICE B. TOKLAS neither condemns nor glorifies the counterculture; rather, the film shows both the seductive and problematic facets of the psychedelic age. With brilliant performances from Sellers and the lovely Taylor-Young, and a rollicking rock soundtrack, I LOVE YOU ALICE B. TOKLAS remains an irreverent and witty testament to a time of hope and change.
