Insane General Jack D. Ripper initiates a nuclear strike on the Soviet Union. As soon as the actions of General "Buck" Turgidson are discovered, a war room full of politicians, generals and a Russian diplomat all frantically try to stop the nuclear strike....
Sharply satirical without being nagging.
It's a very good movie. Sellers acting in this movie is superb and all of the characters are well written. I would say comedy has changed over the years, but i laughed and thought this was funny even tough it is 50 years old!
Kubrick has also some "spesial" skills with the camera, and this movie is a topp class achievement for him!
"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is the war room!"
"It would not be difficult, Mein Fuhrer. Nuclear reactors could… I'm sorry Mr. President."
Hilarious as hell!
