All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

A very average farce.

Mar 25, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The gear-change from manic slapstick (watch out for the berserk hosepipe) to cringing sentimentality about babies and nappies is hard to take.

At the Hampstead Everyman, there is a timely and welcome season of Ingmar Bergman's films.

Seems like not much more than a placeholder during this otherwise remarkable time.

[Director Frank] Tashlin... was all about the gag and helped define Lewis as a walking cartoon, the rubberface spastic adolescent in a grown-up body.

Jerry Lewis plays baby sitter in this knockabout Frank Tashlin comedy.
