I Love You, Alice B. Toklas is a comedy about a man's mid-life crisis during the countercultural revolution of the 1960s. The film opens with Harold Fine (Peter Sellers), a respectable lawyer in Los Angeles, preparing to marry his very uptight fianc''e, Joyce (Joyce Van Patten). Harold doesn't particularly love Joyce, but he believes that he has no other choice except to marry her. Harold's life is turned upside down, however, when his hippie brother introduces him to a young free-spirited woman named Nancy (Leigh Taylor-Young). The two instantly connect, prompting Harold to abandon his fianc''e, grow out his hair, discover the joys of marijuana and become a hippie himself in Venice Beach. Though he is initially thrilled by his new life, Harold soon learns that, despite their different appearance and unconventional values, the hippies he now lives among have some of the same issues that his "square" friends did in his old life. I Love You, Alice B. Toklas is a perfect example of the old saying, "the grass isn't always greener on the other side."moreless
