JERRY LEWIS AT HIS ZANY BEST!!!

Who's Minding the store is Jerry Lewis at his very best! Frank Tashlin directing, and with Tashlin directing Lewis, you know it's going to be a CLASSIC. One moment after another in this 1963 film, Jerry Lewis leads the audience into one madcap nutfilled scene after another, from the scene where Jerry's supposed to be selling gourmet "De-Lights" food, being forced to eat Fried ants in a scent free sauce, to trying to sell shoes to a 300 Lb. Female Wrestler, who's actually been hired to make Jerry want to quit... Well this film is as funny as any film of the 1960's, included are the Pink Panther, Shot in the Dark and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World....

This is also one film of Jerry's that you really don't have to be a fan of Jerry's to appreciate...with an awesome supporting comedy cast of Agnes Moorehead, John McGiver, Ray Walston Jill St. John, this film in my opinion is Jerry Lewis FINEST, without Dean Martin, and maybe his best of all-time. (But that would take alot of doing.) My advice, If you get the opportunity to see "Who's Minding the Store?" See it, if you don't find it utterly hilarious, it's time to make an appointment with the undertaker.

Just plain fun!

This is one of the all time comedy greats. Jerry Lewis plays a guy who can do nothing right, (to the extreme). Jerry plays a young man who wants to make something of himself so he can marry the girl of his dreams. Jill St. John is wonderful as the girl of his affection.

I can't say enough about John McGiver. He plays the "milk toast", Mr. Tuttle. I've seen him in a number of fun films and he always gives a strong performance. His wife, who wore the pants, was played by Hollywood legend, Agnes Moorehead. She gave a strong performance in this film. She was simply wonderful. The things she puts Jerry up to are extremely over the top! Very funny.

I was to young to see this film when it came out. However as a child I can remember seeing it on television. I can remember my dad falling out of his chair and rolling on the floor in laughter. I remember joining him on the floor and finding it hard to breath because I was laughing so hard. My mom was hitting the side of her chair and screaming. You can't buy memories like that. I truly believe Jerry Lewis was the best comic of his time. For that matter, Our time.

Jerry Lewis is a true comic who isn't afraid to be the butt of every joke. That's what separates great comics from the rest. People like Jack Benny, Phyllis Diller,George Burns, The Three Stooges and on and on. It wasn't about them, It was about laughter.

If you want to take a break from the stress of life, if just for a moment, and simply enjoy a little nuttiness for the sake of nuttiness, this is the film for you.

No Errand Boy, But....

Not my Favorite J.L. Film, (that would be Errand Boy), but delightful, nonetheless. Great physical comedy and some lightweight satire ("a man has to be king of his own ranch style tract home").

The woman who played Jane Hathaway in Beverly Hillbillies makes a cameo appearance as a Big Game Hunter looking for a new rifle in the Sporting Dept., where Jerry's Character is working the counter.

The usual slapstick devices come into play such as the golf bag sch tick (you know, the one), the golf ball going out the window...making, let's just say..multiple bounces along its journey, and of course.

The exercise bicycles on the mattress, and ensuing endurance jog make my side hurt with laughter.

Home sick from work or school, either from a cold or the bad ironic humor that pervades your weekdays? This is your film.

If you don't like Jerry, you have no soul.
