In the opening scene when Lewis makes his entrance he's wearing an English Chelsea styled boot, but during the freeze-frame fall out the window, and when he has to land back on the balcony, he's wearing very sensible and safe rubber-soled shoes. See more »
Jerry's best work, he is hilarious in this one, and he plays the character that made me a Jerry fan, the guy who says, "Hey laaady", not the freak he played in Nutty Professor... Anyone who doesn't like this movie is not a fan of comedy, they're fans of Paulie Shore... Love Jerry, Love the Patsy, thats what it's all about, home alone!
Woody Allen has even commented on how Jerry's direction in this film is Superb...
The whole ice dropping bellboy scene near the beginning, still makes me laugh like a wild man!
Jerry is the King of Comedy and this is his crown jewel!
