Just another Jerry Lewis Filmed Fiasco that sat unreleased.... until now, unfortunately. No doubt to prove that he's still relevant in some way, Lewis has allowed humanity to be 'graced' with this ridiculously sappy movie about the widower life of an old fart (Lewis, type-casted).
Lewis putters around bumping into things, the camera incessantly zooming in for the close-up so we can see just how 'loveable' and 'cuddly' he really is -- yes, this is a science-fiction flick, folks. But at least Jerry doesn't try to sing!.... there IS a God! Jerry's fake pomposity is in tow once again.
Pass on this matza ball of a film.
