Jerry Lewis has fun playing a variety of different personas as he tries to charm and woo three different women, all to help achieve his aim of moving to Paris with his girlfriend (Janet Leigh). She's a psychiatrist who cannot bring herself to move while her most special patients still have problems finding love.It's all a bit dubious, but also all enjoyable enough, and everything leads to a frantic, farcical, finale.
Very fetching 60s fashion (mostly!) and some pretty amusing background characters is all I could take from this. Though for a slapstickish comedy with run-on gags, some of the framing is fairly interesting (odd?) - a lot of over-the-shoulders which obscure either of the people talking, for instance. But generally, got tired after the first hour, but at least all the wee ladies got cured thanks to some male attention!
Actually quite a cool concept storywise and a bit of a departure for Lewis. He drops a lot of his usual mannerisms and plays a more natural subdued character. Leigh is great as his wife. Certain sequences succeed more than others, but on the whole a real surprise of a film. A solid 4 stars
