It was exciting to a child
22 August 2002 | by (Hopkins, Missouri) – See all my reviews

This movie came to debut when I was ten. It was the rabbit that made me want to go and see it several times. I find this one of Jerry Lewis' better movies, minus Dean Martin. While most of his movies are just stupid, this one had some heart and soul. It is a great movie for children and if it were made to day could only be improved with maybe some special effects. Baseball fans will love it for the scene involving the Los Angeles Dodgers who had just come west from Brooklyn.
