A hilarious classic!
8 April 2004 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I'll never get tired of watching this movie!

Jerry Lewis is everything in this movie, from a goofy barber assistant to a spoiled little brat to a suave and sophisticated young man.

All the funny bits will never be old to me, they still put me in stitches even after I've watched the film umpteen times.

My favorite part is the choir scene...

If you haven't seen it, don't be a ninny and get the movie for yourself! You won't regret it!

I'm glad I still have my good old copy of this wonderful classic.
