A True Disappointment, 28 October 2013
Author: nsharky-732-789549 from United States

I used to be a Jerry Lewis fan when I was in my teens and twenties (now I'm in my sixties). Before I watched this movie yesterday, I expected to enjoy a nice autobiography of this talented and original actor. However, I was hugely disappointed. I was treated to an unending display of self-praise. As if it was not enough to hear dozens of actors and directors commenting positively about him. Jerry had to hammer it down himself incessantly. Furthermore, if he acknowledged the positive contributions of a few people in his life (such as his father and Dean Martin), this was quickly followed by sarcastic remarks about them.

After watching this movie, I discovered a very unflattering aspect of Jerry's personality. His narcissism, which permeates the entire movie, is very hard to miss. It's very unfortunate that he chose to end his career in this manner.
