Hey Lady!!!
11 April 2003 | by george.schmidtSee all my reviews

THE LADIES' MAN (1961) ** Jerry Lewis (who wrote and directed as well) hijinks with our boy recently graduated from college and recently jilted romantically finds work as houseboy for a boarding house bountiful with a bevy of babes! The usual nuttiness with sight gags and slapstick in high manic style.
