BEING THERE. I truly admire Peter Sellers. I've enjoyed Hal Ashby's films. But for whatever reason, this bored me to tears in the theater, and though I've tried to like it on video, I just can't warm up to it to this day. I can recognize the satirical elements, and Sellers is obviously playing against type, but I think his monotone delivery (necessary for the character, to be sure) just finally turned me off. The film is w-a-y-y overlong.
