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!

Hilarious as hell!

An insane general starts a process to nuclear holocaust that a war room of politicians and generals frantically try to stop.

Stanley Kubrick is one of my all time favorite director. The reason I love him is because his films are based on Human behavior and are character-oriented. Dr. Strangelove is no exception to that. It's a black comedy that makes us laugh and think at the same time. Peter Sellers did surprise me as he played three characters in the film all at the same time. Kubrick captured the political crisis so wonderfully that you just can't help but laugh. He ridicules the system and makes the whole cold war sound a joke. But he doesn't forget to show us the real face of all the politicians and the crazy military figures therein. After this film, Kubrick said goodbye to comedy and left only the "black" part in his later films. And even today, Kubrick's joke is fresh because this political nonsense and hunger for power still exists... A great movie from a lost, visionary director. A must see black and white classic.

Loved this movie. So provoking, funny, it's a great satire.

The acting is pure awesomeness, not only by Peter Sellers, but also for George C. Scott(who made me laugh in every scene he was present), Slim Pickens and Sterling Hayden. Ok, everyone was great in this.

Last, but not least, "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!".

I'd always heard this was a comedy. It is not. It is one of the scariest horror movies I've ever seen.

Well, I'm going to go against the tide and say... I didn't get it.

I had exactly the same reaction as the commenter who noted it doesn't seem to get going humour-wise for about 20 minutes. After that there were some funny bits here and there, but also lots of very long sections of not much happening. I know Kubrick was trying to make an anti-war point at least as much as generate laughs, but I don't see how turgid sequences of men reading numbers and flipping switches achieves either goal.

On the bright side, it was all very prettily shot.

That speech, that shot, that acting. Love it.

This is one of those films I've avoided for so long simply because I've grown up observing so many references to it. For example, I must have seen the image of Maj. King Kong riding the bomb a hundred times. And yet, when it came to that part in the movie I was nearly laughing to the point of tears. Or was I crying to the point of laughing? Not sure.

Robert Ager arguably writes the best and most thorough film analyses (especially Kubrick's), and he has just started writing an analysis on Dr. Strangelove.

If I were to summarize this movie, I would say: "Take a highly sensitive societal / international military subject with actual warfare taking place, and only Stanley Kubrick can pull it off to make it a comedy above anything else."

The movie is full of memorable quotes and the presidential phone calls really stood out, but what I especially love is that it takes its audience seriously by sticking to facts and actually explaining some of the more difficult concepts. (The film analysis supports that as Kubrick was highly knowledgeable on the subject.)

The first twenty minutes or so of this movie had me worried that the humor was going over my head (I only laughed like once), but during and after the first scene in the "War Room", the movie becomes consistently hilarious. I especially love The President's conversations with the Premiere and George C. Scott's paranoid rantings sprinkled throughout the film.
