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.
