Movie Info

Brendan (Jerry Lewis) is an eccentric multimillionaire who is rejected for military service in this misfired comedy. Eager to help the Allies, he gathers a quartet of offbeat irregulars and sails to Italy to join the conflict. Brendan captures a Nazi general and masquerades as the enemy. When Allies arrive, he is mistaken for the real general. Jan Murray, Dack Rambo, John Wood and Steve Franklin help the inept but patriotic Brendan. Also appearing are Kaye Ballard, Neil Hamilton, and George Takei, all allumni of successful television programs from the late 1960s.more

Audience Reviews for Which Way to the Front?


Not the most funny, but still a nice and often lost film.

Super Reviewer

Terribly unfunny, to the point of being offensive. This is one of Jerry Lewis? worst films, and considering how many bad movies he has made, that is saying a lot. The only thing worse than Jerry Lewis as an actor, is Jerry Lewis as a director. The only thing good or in the least bit memorable are a few of the small supporting performances, notably Kathleen Freeman. Otherwise this is a horrendously written and boring mess.
