Goofs

There are multiple discrepancies between the exterior shots of the Plaid Cat pub and the interior scenes, including the shootout. From the inside, a brick wall can be seen outside some of the pub's windows, but there were no brick-walled buildings shown in the establishing exterior shots. Outside another window, a city skyline is visible, but the pub is supposed to be in the countryside and the establishing shot showed only one other house and trees in the vicinity. Finally, when Charlie and Chris exit the pub, as seen from the inside, there is a brick wall outside the entrance door even though the establishing exterior shot showed only a small yard with a walkway leading all the way to the door.

One Bad Time
22 May 2014 | by bravo78See all my reviews

An unfunny disjointed mess of a movie. Directed by Jerry Lewis, it's apparent the movie was a vehicle for Sammy to channel the comedic stylings of Lewis. Safe to say, Sammy is no Jerry.

The plot has Lawford assume the identity of his wealthy slain twin brother by getting the police to believe it was his character (Pepper) that was killed. And he keeps this little secret from his best buddy Sammy (Salt). Movie moves to big castle and no hilarity ensues.

Lewis has Sammy engage in some comedic 'bits' where Sammy has difficulty crossing the street, difficulty with a teapot, difficulty with a water heater and unwittingly encountering some Satanic ritual. All fall flat. Really flat. The teapot scene was just pathetic.

And unlike their earlier pairing in 'Salt and Pepper', Sammy and Lawford now seem devoid of chemistry.

'One More Time' is for Jerry Lewis and Rat Pack fans only.
