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.
