If you are a true Jerry Lewis fan this documentary gets a 100% rating.
A rather fawning documentary on the film career of Jerry Lewis. The film ignores some of the darker elements of Jerry's life (or any mention of "Day the Clown Cried"), but Jerry was one of the producers on this film and protecting his reputation is something he's tirelessly done his entire career, so it wasn't really a big surprise. Still, this film interviews quite a list of film and comedy luminaries who provide some very good unsigned into the brilliance of Jerry Lewis, including Steven Spielberg, Alec Baldwin, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Carl Reiner, Quentin Tarantino, Jerry Seinfeld, Billy Crystal, Carol Burnett, Richard Lewis and many more. That along was enough to make this a fascinating documentary for fans of Lewis.
Fascinating though bias doc on Lewis. Clearly the film did not point out the Jekyll and Hyde part of Lewis. Still very engaging though.
Pure self-adulation, yes, yet enjoyably, informatively, persuasively so. But still no footage from THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED?
