Whatever Method leaves out, most of what it includes is worth a look.

The old clips are still a hoot, but there's a limit to how much compressed air a viewer can take, listening to a bunch of old men talk about how funny their friend was.

Barson has made a doc too narrow in scope, with about as much substance as a meringue pie in the face.

The documentary's camera captures the lensmen from an angle designed to make a tiny swarm of shutterbugs appear like a teeming plague, and you quickly begin to distrust the film's perspective in the most literal sense.

The weakness of this documentary is that it doesn't give us Mr. Lewis, warts and all.

Strong too is a desire to praise him by fellow comedians, who may have regarded the making of this film as a chance to pay tribute while the object of their admiration was fully able to appreciate it.

Barson's documentary is as much a celebration as it is a study of this long career in comedy

As we watch, it's clear we'll always be Jerry's kids, engulfed in helpless laughter and admiration.
