agger's rating of the film The Big Mouth

I am evidently not a Jerry Lewis fan, as I found from this double bill! The first thing this film (and his other work) needed was a good, ruthless editor who could give the story SOME PACE. Very indulgent (Jerry Lewis Productions, after all) jokes which run on past their effectiveness, an over-wrought story, misogynistic and racist undertones (Chinese? Japanese? Who cares!), and a rather flaccid ending.
