Comedian Jerry Lewis began directing movies in 1960, and this often unkind satire on the nature of American womanhood is one of his early efforts in that regard. The rubber-legged, rubber-faced Lewis plays Herbert, a man who is despondent over the break-up of his romance. While looking for a job, he comes across an impressive mansion (built as a set at the cost of $350,000) filled with women of all types -- and lo and behold -- they need a handyman. So Herbert gets to reside with a bevy of women

...it's hard not to be awed by the technological leaps of this production, and at their best his gags delve in to the realm of the surreal last visited by the Marx Brothers.
Really funny moments happen with Jerry Lewis in all-girl rooming house.
A bizarre, sexually ambiguous, cantankerously skeptical burlesque on the ascent of feminine independence.
Creatively goofy thanks to his inspired insanity, Lewis is at his naughty best in this carousing comedy
Nicely mounted, interestingly done, but typically unfunny Lewis.
