Critic Reviews for The World's Greatest Lover
In a generation that's filled with cynical, ultra-raunchy, dark comedies, this was refreshing to me. There's a certain innocence in this kind of immature humor that I miss from the movies.
A shrill, silly farce that starts out with some funny moments but quickly fizzles and ends up being quite lame.
Even those of us with a longtime and well-earned affection for Gene Wilder have to respond to The World's Greatest Lover ... with a dispirited sigh.
Misfire by Gene Wilder who finds he is not Mel Brooks after all.
This really just doesn't work.
