    This movie by Jerry Lewis is so great - what great way to help you have a better day when you're feeling down. He sure can make you laugh.

  • Jerry Lewis' Best

    A contemporary comedy movie fan might find this type of humor much too subtle, slapstick or just completely miss the clever hilarity altogether. The Les Brown and His Band of Renown soundtrack and the bands appearance in the movie are simply superb. Great music that never goes out of style. Ernest T. Bass (Howard Morris) is a hoot as Mr. Kelp, Sr. along with other actors that became common faces after this movie. After being anesthetized by most of today's movie comedy, it may be necessary to watch this movie more than once to enjoy its full flavor.

  • Dated and very much an acquired taste

    Jerry Lewis is, as TCM notes in the main article, an acquired taste. This movie is no exception, since he plays the buck-toothed nerd (rather over-the-top, as is his wont) once again. This one smells of an aggressive narcissism, difficult to put one's finger on, but it's there. Lewis plays two characters, directed the movie, and was responsible for so many of its details that one has to think that he thought of it as his masterpiece.Now...that is funny.

  • A TRENDSETTER
