Storyline

Even at the start of his singing career, Dean Martin is an impressive gentleman, big, tall, handsome, exquisitely dressed, fitting his nightingale voice and naturally classy appeal, even though his womanizing costs him enough in alimony to declare bankruptcy. Jerry Lewis on the other hand is an unsightly schmuck, whose buffoon version of stand-up comedy is an agent's nightmare. When he accepts playing MC in a show with Dean, he tries interacting with him, and they hit gold judging by the audience's reactions. Initially Dean wants to walk off and stay a solo act, but success as a duo is irresistible, and they rocket together, even in Hollywood. However in time they fall out of friendship as their characters and lifestyle clash, and Dean still dreams of solo success. Written by KGF Vissers

good film...good acting
30 April 2003 | by (southbend IN.) – See all my reviews

i saw this film when it first premired on T.V. i thought it was a lot better than some of the reviews i had read about it. the acting i thought was flawless. Sean Hayes proved to me that he is more than Jack on "Will and Grace." he is the only actor who looks anything like Jerry Lewis. i thought Jeremy Northam did a great job as Dean Martin. at first i didn't think he looked anything like him but i watched it again and i can see he does. the rest of the cast did a wonderful job as well. so all in all good film...good acting. 8 out of 10
