Ripper of Burpelson Air Force Base, he believing that fluoridation of the American water supply is a Soviet plot to poison the U.S. populace, is able to deploy through a back door mechanism a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union without the knowledge of his superiors, including the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Buck Turgidson, and President Merkin Muffley. Only Ripper knows the code to recall the B-52 bombers and he has shut down communication in and out of Burpelson as a measure to protect this attack. Ripper's executive officer, RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (on exchange from Britain), who is being held at Burpelson by Ripper, believes he knows the recall codes if he can only get a message to the outside world.

Kubrick Becomes a Master
Stanley Kubrick directed the greatest dark comedy of the 20th century. Amidst the height of the Cold War and the assassination of American President John Kennedy only months before, Dr. Strangelove is an exaggerated view of the Cold War to see how ridiculous it could really be. America and the Soviet Union were really going to use all those nuclear weapons on each other?! That would destroy the whole world in one day! That's the point Kubrick wants to make. Kubrick always at the dark side of humans throughout his films. The cynic, satirical, and heartless humans that are always depicted in his movies. Even if they don't start like that (The Shining, Full Metal Jacket), the characters already have the potential to go berserk. That happens in Dr. Strangelove, which is a comedy. It doesn't matter what genre Kubrick covered, may it be drama, war, science fiction,or crime movies, Kubrick always got his message across. Who would believe he would create another masterpiece four years later in 2001:A Space Odyssey?!

Still Crazy After All These Years
I have not seen this movie in over twenty years, but it was on my Amazon wish list and I got it. If you were raised during the Cold War you will love this movie! If you have never heard of it before - rent it and watch it - I believe you will enjoy the experience. Just put your mind in the sixties.

Strange Indeed
Stanley Kubrick really got some of my favorite movies done: Shining, Clockwork Orange, and yes, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. (Of course, I also like and recommend Paths of Glory, Spartacus, and Full Metal Jacket).

George C. Scott as the mad and paranoid Gen.'Buck' Turgidson, and Peter Sellers in his roles (Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake, President Merkin Muffley and Dr. Strangelove) on the road of destroying the planet (and first of all the Sowjetunion!) in a nuclear holocaust.

Fine and lots of humor and a satirical sharp view on a world on the verge of madness and destruction - in its finest moments the movie reminds me of the notorious The Life of Brian.

That the scientist Dr. Stranglove, who is an adviser to the US President and the generals and maybe the last hope for mankind to stop the ultimate war is obviously an ex-scientist of the Nazi 3rd Reich, is just one of those fine jabs into societies smugness that make this movie grand.

Sellers should have never lost the Oscar to Rex Harrison
The Academy has made some stupid decisions for the duration of its existence. Arguably, its stupidest one was made in 1960. I love the movie My Fair Lady as much as the next musical enthusiast, but considering the strong (triple!) performances he gave in Dr. Strangelove, it was simply a travesty that Peter Sellers did not win the Oscar that year. This film is one of the best, if not the best, of Sellers' career, and my favorite of Stanley Kubrick's. It's definitely a thinking person's film; masterfully executed dark humor and satire. A definite must-see. ****/4

Still laughing, long past the end credits...
Who'd have thought that Kubrick had such a great sense of humor? I mean, in most of his films, there are snippets of humor, and Barry Lyndon has a definite irony, but I hadn't expected him to be able to direct such a hilarious and thoroughly entertaining comedy. I had known for a while that this was the highest rated Kubrick film here on IMDb, so naturally, I was excited to find out if it was really his best film. Even though I haven't seen Lolita, Spartacus, Eyes Wide Shut or his first few films(the shorts he made before his feature), and even though I thoroughly enjoyed his other films, this very well may be his best film. Made in a period of time where the thought of nuclear war was a terrifying idea, that was believed to be a reasonable fear, the film takes this idea and turns it around, makes us laugh at it. The film was made during the Cold War, which must have taken quite a lot of guts on Kubrick's side... then again, he did start out, intending to make a thriller/suspense film about the subject, but ultimately realized that a comedy with a lighthearted look on the situation would be a better idea. So, he turned the idea of impending doom from nuclear holocaust into a black comedy. Personally, I think he did a damn good job of it. I haven't laughed that hard and for so long at any one time for quite a while... in fact, I might never have. The comedy isn't overplayed, in fact most of it is presented in a dead-pan, matter-of-fact-like type of way... what's even more hilarious is that the better part of it is completely accurate. No dumb stereotypes, no old clichés... just logic and simple, good old-fashioned observation. The plot is excellent, and very well-paced. In my opinion, Kubrick's most well-paced film. The plot takes off almost immediately and moves at a great pace throughout the film. The acting is flawless. Absolutely flawless. Not something completely unusual for a Kubrick film, but still. George C. Scott and Peter Sellers are amazing. Normally, I'm not too fond of Sellers, but here he was brilliant. The characters are well-written, diverse and interesting. The cinematography is great. Just like Kubrick's other films, this one has some very memorable scenes, one of which(the bomb-riding sequence) has been referenced and spoofed a huge number of times... possibly more times than any other sequence in Kubrick's films, which is quite impressive. The dialog is well-written, well-delivered and memorable. Plenty of quotable lines. I can't really say much more about the movie without ruining one or more of the innumerable great jokes... so I'll just suggest you see it. Seriously, if you enjoy Kubrick's sense of humor as seen limited in his other movies, you're going to enjoy this film. Maybe not as much as I did, but you'll most likely laugh. A lot. I recommend this to any fan of Kubrick, black comedies, Peter Sellers or just comedies with a dark basic theme to watch this. I can't praise it enough. See it, unless you are offended by the themes the film presents. You won't regret it. I know I didn't. Not by a long shot. Hilarious film with a provocative plot and basic idea. 10/10

My favorite movie of all time, bar none
One of the funniest and yet most poignant movies I have ever seen. Kubrick is at his best here, as usual showing what can happen when a finely tuned system built by humans (in this case, the tremendous infrastructure of Mutually Assured Destruction) just doesn't work. As usual, Kubrick's point is that the system is only as good as the people running it, and here the people running it are hilariously bad. Career-peak performances by George C. Scott, Slim Pickens, and of course Peter Sellers, Peter Sellers and Peter Sellers.

Despite many of this movie's hilarious moments having entered general popular culture, when you watch it they are still funny enough to make you laugh out loud. And there are yet many more comic gems to delight the unfamiliar viewer. I've seen Strangelove twice in theaters in the last couple of years ... I was stunned to find packed audiences screaming with laughter and delighted to learn that I'm not the only one who finds it hilarious, even decades after filming.

SAC never looked so good.
As the son of a cold-war era B-52 pilot (who thinks burnt JP-4 smells good) this movie holds a special place in my heart. Interestingly, the men of dad's squadron were ordered by the base commander to go see it! It was an instant favorite of those Strategic Air Command warriors. Despite director Kubrick's black-comedy approach, the dedication and professionalism of these men can't help but come through.

While Sellers undeniably shows the most versatility (and sheer acting genius) of this great cast, it's hard not to fall for Sterling Hayden as the whacked Base Commander. His cigar-chomping soliloquies on flouridated water and the Red Menace are priceless. This movie is a must-see.

The best comedy ever, perhaps one of the best movies ever
This is the second Stanley Kubrick film I watched, the first being Full Metal Jacket. And I loved it. It combines an excellent script with excellent direction and on top of that you get brilliant performances. This movie is funny, but its much funnier if you know cold war terms and have extreme knowledge of the cold war. I think that this and Death To Smoochy are the two best comedies ever made and both are dark comedies too, although I'm sure this is going to spark quite a bit of controversy. This movie was nominated for four academy awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay. It didn't win any, the first three went to My Fair Lady and I'm not sure about screenplay. But it deserved each one. Peter Sellers is excellent here, he plays the three characters very well. George S. Scott and Sterling Hayden also turn in noteworthy performances as two generals. The entire situation has a lot to do with todays impending war on Iraq so some people may find this not funny at all. The subject is rather scary but the presentation is excellent and funny. Everyone should see this movie. There are no flaws. A VERY well earned 10/10.

The most childishly sophisticated comedy ever. My fave film.
From beginning to end strangelove is a riot. I love every second of it. The ending makes it the blackest comedy ever made and that ever will be made. Sellers is at his very best. The comedy ranges from sutle, biting satire to ridiculous slapstick. If you get a chance to watch it with the bootleg original ending do! The dignitaries have a food fight in the war room!!!!! Perfect.

Laughing at Fear
What makes this film so powerful is the message that it made at the time of its release. This film came out at a height of paranoia of the nuclear age and the Cold War, right around the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This film depicts a horrible, tragic incident in which a breach in the government and a few diplomatic mistakes result in nuclear holocaust. So, why didn't this film inspire panic? Because of the brilliant way in which Kubrick presents it... as a satire. The scariest thing about this film in retrospect is not how it depicts the impending doom of the Cold War, but how it makes you laugh at it. By presenting it with humor, it conveys just how much of a farce the nuclear arms race was in real life. And I don't think that any other film has captured the absurdity of war nearly as well as this one has. And I am not likely to believe that one ever will. In my opinion, Kubrick has never made a better film since. And kudos to George C. Scott for his astounding performance, as well as Peter Sellers for the most versatile acting I've seen from an actor in one film, and to Sterling Hayden, for performing the most serious, yet the most hilarious role in film with perfect accuracy. Beware of fluoridation!
