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.

Audience Reviews for The Ladies' Man

  • Apr 15, 2018
    When it isn't funny (which happens quite frequently, to be honest), at least it holds out attention, but when it is, the film can make you laugh until you wet your pants (especially in a hilarious scene with Buddy Lester). Too bad it almost gets lost in its uneven last half hour.

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