Geistig zurückgebliebener Gärtner, der die Welt nur aus dem Fernsehen kennt und das Haus seines Dienstherrn nie verlassen hat, gewinnt durch die Freundschaft eines Industriellen und seiner Frau einfluß selbst auf den amerikanischen Präsidenten und auf internationale Politiker. Ashbys brillanter Film ist eine tragikomische, teilweise sarkastische Satire über die Industrie- und Finanzgesellschaft sowie den unbegrenzten, abstumpfenden Konsum der allzu mächtigen Fernsehprogramme. Hervorragend gespielte Unterhaltung mit Substanz. (Lexikon des Internationalen Films 2000)
