Wilder's new movie, The World's Greatest Lover, his second venture as star, director and writer, is not very clever at all.

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.
| Original Score: 4/10

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.

The best moments are certainly worth seeing (particularly if, like me, you simply love to see Gene Wilder work) though the film as a whole is screamingly inconsistent.
