I bought this movie at amazon.com because I'm a musical fan as well as a Shirley MacLaine fan. I'm so glad that I did! Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin are wonderful comiediennes, and Dean's voice could probably melt any woman's heart, serenading them with "Armaratta" and "You Look So Familiar." Jerry Lewis is funny as the dumb-bat best friend, Eugene, who is crushed upon by love-struck numberology/astrology loving Bessie (MacLaine). The songs are delightful and the movie is hilarious. I gave this a 9. Eva Gabor is also in the act as well as Dorothy M. and they're terrific! I highly recommend this movie to EVERYONE!
