One JL defective comedy

Otherwise known as The Defective Detective, this JL vehicle is low on laughs and lacks the magic of Lewis's two other films around this time. Starting with a great credit cartoon opening, don't be fooled by what follows. Again Lewis plays a clutz of a character, this one a tired detective, holidaying in France. He stays at his beautiful ex's, where the fun is in watching the rivalry, between Jerry and her new short, average looking husband. The attraction between her and her new hubby is puzzling, yeah. Jerry stumbles onto the hubby's involvement in art fraud, where near the end, we discover in a sort of relief, everyone is not who they seem. The funniest scene, which we must be thankful for, is the pool scene with a whale of a guy, soaking the nearby tourists, poolside by doing two many jumps off a low diving board. The change of atmosphere I like, but what we don't have here is a comedy, just a bad one, though still one, if you like watching Jerry, in not a half bad performance. The others do well too. And what's Jerry's fascination with this operatic singer. Another funny element to that poolside scene.
