Just as few other people stated here, don't watch the ending credits (the bloopers). It completely destroys the mood of the movie...

Very beautiful but underrated. Peter Sellers is simply the best.

Fantastic, satirical, enlightening, humbling and hilarious. Great writing, acting and directing all around. I also support the ending credits.

Magical and brilliant. I was well warned by the comments and stopped the movie before the end bloopers had a chance to roll.

Peter Sellers could do so much with his face and in this film does not do much except inhabit the character - if you think that is easy, then think of how you would play a near idiot. Other people's guesses about him make the comedy so rich. It also says a lot about innocence.

Delightful movie. Perfect near-sendoff of Peter Sellers. The blooper reel in the credits was an odd choice, indeed. I’m all about a win-win though. Stop the movie before the credits roll, but go back later and watch the blooper reel. It’s hilarious. And if anything, the message is pretty clear: it’s a comedy. Don’t take it too seriously.

Being There stars Peter Sellers as a TV-obsessed, simple-minded gardener who is evicted from his home and by chance (which is his name), finds himself propelled on the international stage, mostly by parroting others, or through misunderstandings. Shirley MacLaine gives a sweet, vulnerable performance as a woman taken with him for other reasons. This is a quiet, quirky satire that nevertheless savagely attacks a number of things, whether our general complacency, our edification of what's on television, our ability to fill an empty vessel and project our opinions into it, white male privilege, the glorification of ignorance, and fabricated manifest political destiny. The last scene has implications that take the cynicism to even greater depths. This was made in 1979, on the eve of Ronald Reagan's presidency, but more relevant today than ever.

What a beautiful, funny, but also sad movie to some degree. Think I had a smile on my face throughout most of it. And I didn't mind the bloopers at the end. It's nice to finish of the emotional experience the movie brings by having a laugh, either by yourself, or with whoever you shared it with. (But I also understand Sellers himself was not a fan of the outtakes.)

Shouldn't "Being There" be the primary title and "Chance" the AKA?

Absulutely delicious comedy. One of those movies EVERYONE should see because if they fail to see all the little brilliant things about this movie, at least they can get a good laugh out of it, so ... it's a win win

The blooper reel dragged it down ever so slightly. Otherwise fantastic. [2]
