Paul and Heather review two films featuring every highbrow movie fan's favourite lowbrow comedian, Jerry Lewis. First: THE BELLBOY, Lewis' 1960 comedy about the slapstick misadventures of a hapless employee of the luxurious Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida; then, THE KING OF COMEDY, Martin Scorsese's 1982 dark comedy starring Lewis as a late-night talk-show host and Robert De Niro as an aspiring standup comedian who kidnaps him in order to force the network to put him on the air. Milton Berle playing himself or Tony Randall playing himself: which will prevail?
Plus our quick takes on MELVIN AND HOWARD, LIFE ITSELF, and BIG BAD WOLVES.
