This was the seventh of eight Jerry Lewis films directed by former cartoon director Frank Tashlin. See more »
When Jerry Lewis is painting the ball on the end of the flagpole it is gold. It was stated earlier in the film that there was only one flagpole. Later on in the movie when Quimby (Ray Walston) falls out of a window and hangs from the flagpole the ball is silver. See more »
Clumsy errand boy tries to make good only to make matters worse!
I saw this movie at a Sunday matinee in 1963. The movie was so funny that the mere memory of that movie was enough to get me laughing. And I got sent to the principal's office as a result. So you can say that Jerry Lewis got me in trouble in school!
Jerry Lewis is an incompetant errand boy who is engaged to the store owner's daughter. But to get him out of the daughter's life, the store owner turns the screws on the engagement by assigning him the worst jobs. The store owner then moves him from one department to another, leaving massive chaos and destruction everywhere he goes.
The results are hilarious enough. But the aftermath of his time in the appliance department, alone, is worth watching the movie alone. It left me laughing so hard that I had stomach cramps!
I saw the movie again many years later and it was second childhood all over again.
