Audience Reviews for Cracking Up
Labored and stupid.
Not seen except in very limited theatres, the film was more loved by the French. Mostly a series of skits of a man in deep trouble from his current sad state and back through his geneology. Mostly slapstick, mostly overlong comedy scenes. Suggest you watch this for yourself. A scene from the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnYifhU5Yp8 [img]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-eD21YqZxRVk/T3sjrAHPygI/AAAAAAAABTk/frsBRGD_yhg/s1600/crackingup-suicideattempt.png[/img] So inept, he fails at suicide Cracking Up is a comedy film directed by and starring Jerry Lewis. Originally titled Smorgasbord, it was filmed in 1981-82 and only received limited distribution in the United States. It is the last film to be directed by Lewis. NOTES: 1 In December 1982, after filming completed, Lewis underwent triple-bypass heart surgery at the Desert Springs Hospital, Las Vegas NV.

After watching the 1st couple skits I had high hopes for this movie but it went from HILARIOUS to unfunny.Watching Jerry Lewis trying to commit suicide at the start was over the top & then going to his shrinks office & sliding & falling all over the place was hilarious but after that it just went downhill from there
