The autobiographical incidents are less engaging for the viewers than the protagonist.

Reiner has directed a film version that sticks closely to the words of the play but destroys much of its sly insight into the dawning of awareness in darkest Bronx.

Enter Laughing made a star out of Alan Arkin on Broadway, but Santoni is hopeless in the lead, lacking both the charm and the wit to pull it off.

Carl Reiner's 1967 debut film is, oddly, better made than any of his subsequent features.
