Movie Info

Comedian Jerry Lewis began directing movies in 1960, and this often unkind satire on the nature of American womanhood is one of his early efforts in that regard. The rubber-legged, rubber-faced Lewis plays Herbert, a man who is despondent over the break-up of his romance. While looking for a job, he comes across an impressive mansion (built as a set at the cost of $350,000) filled with women of all types -- and lo and behold -- they need a handyman. So Herbert gets to reside with a bevy of women of various types, all under the supervision of Mrs. Wellenmelon (Helen Traubel). In the end, the set itself outtrumps them all.

Critic Reviews for The Ladies' Man

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

In the end, the movie exalts the modest pleasures of everyday people, but, along the way, Lewis reveals the madder music within that they whistle while they work.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

...it's hard not to be awed by the technological leaps of this production, and at their best his gags delve in to the realm of the surreal last visited by the Marx Brothers.

One of the most brillhant, funniest and criative Jerry Lewis' movies. The Ladies Man, without a doubt a true masterpiece. Fresh.

Produced, written and directed by Jerry Lewis. Finally, a film from Lewis that perhaps showcased him best. This film captures the sixties era, or at least the early sixites. The later sixties were another thing entirely.

Don't know where Lewis suddenly became a dirty word amongst film goers. Its as if he personified the entire dirty Vietnam experience, the cliff between early sixties naive and later sixties cynicism. Either way, his brand of humor decidedly took a nosedive as more sophisticated humor became known. Herbert H. Heebert (Jerry Lewis) is a young man who loses his girlfriend, swears off romance, and then takes a job at a genteel, women-only boarding house, run by Helen Wellenmellen (Helen Traubel).

This ranks among the greatest works of Jerry Lewis, additionally it is criminally underrated. While The Nutty Professor is a fantastic film and makes excellent social commentary, this film is a great example deconstructing and poking fun at masculinity. What makes this better, though, is the massive and artistically made set piece which almost seems like a living organism rather than a set piece. The Ladies Man impresses on all levels and makes for a fantastic comedy and deserves remembering far more than it's been handed.
