A very problematic movie, as Jerry Lewis was an acquired taste even in his heyday. My takeaways were (a) the movie couldn't decide if it was supposed to be set at a high school or a college, (b) I'm guessing about 90% of Love's lines were cribbed from Dean Martin, and (c) this was a tour de force for Edith Head, and is almost worth watching for that alone.

Can they give an Academy Award just for directing children? This film contains the most natural, unaffected performances I've ever seen from kids. They truly dance like no one is watching.

This is a forgotten list. It needs to be updated to at least include "O.J. Made in America" since that is on an official list.

If you're interested in the context of this, I would suggest John Cornwell's book "Hitler's Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII".

If you were ever curious about the difference between English and American ideas of bad-asses, watch Burton & Eastwood in this.

The movie that dares to ask: When, oh, when will beautiful young girls give bad boy jocks a chance?

Loved the effect where she was breathing heavy. Made me forget it was a puppet!

I cannot organize my Netflix queue without this site, so I am putting my money where my mouth is and upgrading to a Pro subscription. Long live iCM!

Can't this list go under the Directors tab instead of Critics?
