10.2.2013 Artists & Models

Screen Shot 2013-10-03 at 11.32.09 AM

 

The songs are pretty lame and Dean Martin does his best to ruin this movie, but it still comes out great.  Tashlin is at top form, Jerry Lewis broke me up almost whenever he was on screen, and Shirley MacLaine helps you forget about the main love story even more.

The best scene has to be Maclaine’s one song later in the film.  Her at turns attractive and ridiculous use of  a set of stairs to perform weird gymnastics/dancing and Lewis’ wonderfully aloof portrayal and great timing… This is what Hollywood films should be and if the comedies filling the theater now had any idea how to make me actually laugh I would be there in a heartbeat.
