Movie Info

As if one Jerry Lewis wasn't enough, The Family Jewels offers no fewer than seven Jerrys. Fans of Lewis will like the film. Others should be advised to steer clear of any and all French film festivals. The plot revolves around nine-year-old Donna Peyton (Donna Butterworth), who stands to inherit 30 million dollars. The catch: Donna must pick a new daddy from her late father's six closest male relatives. Lewis spends most of the film playing family chauffeur Willard Woodward, whom Donna loves

Lewis makes the camera a prism to break out the divergent, and even conflicting, strands of his own character.

Since I find one Jerry Lewis too much, seven of them was way too much for me to handle.

Jerry Lewis romp that gives him multiple characters for laughs.

With The Family Jewels, Lewis seems more willing than ever to acknowledge his own hostility towards being dismissed as a kids' entertainer.
