The Party Movie Review

Peter Sellers makes one of his biggest character stretches here as Indian nincompoop Hrundi V. Bakshi, a film extra who accidentally demolishes the set, then finds himself mistakenly invited to a big Hollywood dinner party. His bumbling begins the moment he steps foot in the door. Literally: He loses his shoe in a fountain, doesn't have a seat at the table, and dunks a piece of artwork in the toilet. Little bizarrely hilarious moments don't quite make the movie on their own, but for Sellers and/or Blake Edwards fans, it's totally worth a look.
