Over a week since I saw it and I've burned through a lot of films and reviews since.
I didn't grow up on Jerry Lewis, this was neither a return to a childhood fave or fighting past pre-conceived ideas. I found him annoying. I have a feeling that my quest to get to know Tashlin might have a major stumbling block. He (and Martin) did make me laugh but there was a lot to get past all the same.
Which is a shame, because I loved the colours, and the sets and the ideas and the character actors and the lead women and there was a real vision going on. A leering vision at times, no thigh goes unwatched, but a vision all the same.
And as a recovering comic fan I loved it's take on the Kefauver, Wertham, Gaines material.
