Storyline

In this sequel film, all the characters remain the same; Al is still unemployed, Jane still has show-biz aspirations for boyfriend Steve; Steve and Seymour are still partners, and Irma is still Irma, which isn't all that easy. Al gets Steve a singing job on television, which is seen by a Hollywood producer. He signs Steve to a long term movie contract, and all hands depart for Hollywood. But, alas, the producer turns out to be an escaped lunatic, and they end up in Las Vegas, where Irma manages to get kidnapped by gangsters, who are very unhappy with Irma.

Trivia

Irma is kidnapped by the "notorious Corrigan Gang". Their leader Sharpie, a ruthless murderer, is played against type by endearing, lovable director-turned-actor Lloyd Corrigan in an obvious in-joke. See more »

Goofs

This is a sequel to My Friend Irma (1949). However, at the end of that movie, Al and Steve are waiting at the church for Irma and Jane for a double wedding. Also, Irma has won a radio contest worth $50,000 (approximately half a million dollars today, adjusting for inflation). At the beginning of My Friend Irma Goes West (1950), the weddings never happened and neither did the financial windfall. Steve and Seymour are back working at the orange juice stand, setting up similar plot circumstances as the first movie (much like a typical radio or TV sitcom). See more »

Quotes

Al: It's a deal, but you got to understand. Miss Yvonne, this has to be a secret between us. As you French say...

Not as good as "My Friend Irma"
9 August 2003 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The only thing this movie lacked was plot and humor, which both started out promising. The plot was slow. The songs were slow and not as catchy as in the first movie. And Dean Martin was not the cowboy type. The transition between "My Friend Irma" and "My Friend Irma Goes West" was not smooth. I thought they got married in the end of the first movie, and what happened to all the money Irma won? I was very disappointed with Jerry Lewis' performance, he was just goofy in this movie, not very funny. When Martin and Lewis were together it seemed more like an act, separated from the main plot. It was a cute movie but lacked the charm of the first movie. If your going to see one, see "My Friend Irma"!
