"Peter Sellers' finest hour, playing Chance the Gardner, a simple, quietly spoken man who finds himself in the company of a well connected yet dating businessman who has connections with the President. Mistaken Chance's ideas about gardening for optimistic slices of advice, Chance wins over everyone he meets. Hal Ashby's satire is lifted by Sellers' tremendous performance and it's gentle pacing. Shame this wasn't Sellers' final film as it would have been a crown and a terrific career."
