Critics reviews

Jerry Lewis remains one of the top items on my cinephile to-do list—I have yet to see any of the films he directed, embarrassingly. As a performer, he’s a taste I still hope to acquire, but this particular effort skews way too mawkish for me, with Tashlin’s penchant for absurdist physical comedy regularly shunted aside in favor of boy-manchild bonding.
