Fun to watch but not really for its entire duration.
12 January 2011 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

On the one hand this is a greatly entertaining, goofy, comedy but on the other its also a bit of a failure.

What the movie fails at is being a consistent one and maintaining a story throughout. It seems that about half way through the film-makers decided to throw the story overboard and to me the second half of the movie did not really felt in tone with its first half. But this might also very well be simply due to the fact that there wasn't much story to work with in the first place. It's an extremely simplistic story, that serves as an excuse to allow Jerry Lewis act crazy and incredibly immature.

And this is what makes the movie still some good lighthearted fun to watch. The comedy is real goofy and slapstick like and it shall most likely please the Jerry Lewis fans. The movie really has some good laughs in it, so as a comedy the movie still delivers, despite of its weaker second half.

Seriously, things don't even make sense anymore in its second half and a couple of different story lines and characters get thrown in, as if it all was a last minute decision. Things get really forced, such as for instance the 'love story' that really came out of nowhere and therefore just never worked out at all.

But no, I don't want to sound too negative about this movie, since it was one that I still enjoyed watching. The movie is a fun one to watch and a true pleasure to look at, due to its nice sets and Jerry Lewis, who was simply perfectly silly and provided the movie with much more fun and entertainment than its script could ever had.

Decent enough, simple entertainment.

6/10
