OK. Maybe Lewis is a genius. . .
5 June 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Has Jerry Lewis just gotten a bad rap? Well, when you combine his top-notch physical humor with a good script, wonderful supporting cast (and the ever necessary loyal pretty girl played here by Joan O'Brien) and Frank Tashlin's cartoon-expert direction, you've got to wonder. Very funny (and those creepy, one-eyed, flesh-eating, canister vacuum cleaners at the end are a blast).
