Movie Info

Tommy Fawkes (Oliver Platt) is a struggling stand-up comedian who has tried for years to get out from under the shadow of his father, George Fawkes (Jerry Lewis), himself a famous humorist. Tommy finally scores a showcase spot at a major resort in Las Vegas, but when opening night rolls around, Tommy's act is an unqualified disaster, with the failure made even more painful by his father's presence in the audience. In search of a fresh start, Tommy heads to Blackpool, England, where he was born

Odd drama about eccentric show biz family, featuring Jerry Lewis in rare dramatic role.

Fascinating and quirky little movie with great bits from Oliver Reed and Leslie Caron.

It has its moments, but not enough of them.

Lee Evans steals every scene he's in.

Audience Reviews for Funny Bones

A very funny and moving comedy with some great performances. Davies and Lewis are brilliant, Platt has never been better. It's actually Lee Evens who steals the show though with a real nail biting finale!

It was interesting. I thought it was funny, but the ending was pretty weak.
