Editorial Reviews

Dog walker, Norman Phiffier (Jerry Lewis) is in love with Barbara Tuttle (Jill St. John), an elevator operator in her parent's department store. Barbara's conniving mother, Phoebe (Agnes Moorehead) disapproves of the couple and is determined to break up her daughter's romance with the incompetent boob. With hidden ulterior motives, Phoebe hires Norman to work in her department store and despite the impossible requests of Mr. Quimby (Ray Walston), the store manager; Norman manages to do an admirable job in his own slapstick manner. A film filled with great sight gags, includes a hilarious vacuum cleaner demonstration that naturally goes awry. This was the seventh (of eight) collaboration between Jerry Lewis and director Frank Tashlin (Cinderfella).

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Time To Laugh July 8, 2005
By S. Cox
Format:VHS Tape
A million laughs. Jerry Lewis sucks up a dog, a wig, dishes, and half of the displays into a vacuum cleaner that he just repaired. When the bag is popped by a pin, there is a hilarious explosion. A perfect cure for depression or those rainy day blues. Get this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Jerry Lewis movies December 9, 2009
Format:VHS Tape
Without a doubt one of the best Jerry Lewis movies. This film is just packed with great comedians. Jerry Lewis, John McGiver,
Angnes Moorehead (Bewitched), Ray Walston (My Favorite Martian), and many others.
Jerry is a poor boob named Norman. Now Norman is a really nice guy, honest, hard working, and would do anything for anyone. Especially
for his girl. But like all Jerry Lewis characters he`s a disaster looking for a place to happen. His girl (Jill St. John) is the
heir to a big chain of department stores, but she doesn`t want Norman to know this. She wants to make sure he loves her for
herself, not because she`s rich. Her parents are Moorehead and her hopelessly henpecked husband McGiver. Moorehead`s character
is the ruthless driving force behind the Tuttle Empire and wants to prove to her daughter just what a boob Jerry really is.
So she orders the store manager (Ray Walston) to hire the boy and give him every dirty impossible job he can think of. The result
is disaster after disaster and laugh after laugh.
Walston makes a surprisingly good (not too mean) villian for the film, and all too often has his dirty tricks backfire on him.
Lewis is at top form in the film and turns in one of his best comedy performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming movie April 12, 2004
By Peter
Format:VHS Tape
I've seen this movie quite a few times now over the years, and why not wright a little review of this wild and crazy classic. it actally isnt as silly as most of the jerry lewis films, this is serious at times, and has alote of fine actors in it.
Jerry Lewis plays (as almost always) a nice and friendly chap, but clumsy who just can't seem to do anything right.
In this movie he is working at a big store, a huge store. and everything goes wrong! almost anyway. alote of fun scenes. not just a couple. i laughed many times through the movie. this is a fun and crazy jerry comedy, i think its one of the best jerry lewis movies. (atleast of what ive seen so far)
oh, and by the way, check out that beatiful secretary "Shirley", oh mama! i wish she had played a bigger role! and don't you just love the movie title? check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's Minding the Store November 12, 2011
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This is a great Jerry Lewis movie. He is a bumbler but he never gives up and keeps a cheery disposition. The company where he works is headed by a history of men who awere dominated by their wives (behind each presidential portrait is a portrait of their wife). Jerry is his own man though and unknown to him is that his girlfriend is the daughter of the president of the company. The mother knows of their relationship but the father does not know of it. The father likes Jerry's effort at every bad tasks that Jerry is given and this gives the father courage to stand up to his wife. I enjoyed the movie very much.

Format:Blu-ray
***** = movie
*** = Blu-ray disc

At first I got upset when the movie started, the title sequence was soft & grainy with uneven colors (this is due to the original optical process used to produce the titles). Once the titles were over the film looked fine, not great, but fine. The colors could have been brighter, but aside from the opening titles the image is sharp and free of grain.

A few times the color seemed unstable (once Jerry's face goes redder and then returns back to normal). This really should never have happened, if the tele-cine camera fluctuated the operator should have stopped and re-done that scene.

It is obvious that a CRI re-print was used and not the original IB Technicolor Negatives, Paramount is cheap that way.

This is far better that what 20th Century Fox produces on Blu-ray, but with NO bonus material it is HIGHLY OVERPRICED!

If you are deciding between the DVD and the Blu-ray, the DVD is probably just as good (I don't have the DVD to compare it to).

AS FAR AS THE MOVIE: Mix the talents of Jerry Lewis with the direction of Frank Tashlin (formerly of Looney Tunes fame) and you have one of the best Jerry Lewis movies that will be a joy to watch. And Jerry's group of character actors are present and at their best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's Minding The Store? July 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Who's Minding The Store? Is one of the funniest movies of All Time. It's right up there with It's A Mad,Mad,Mad,Mad World and Ruthless People all are Funnier than Some Like It Hot. It's going to be nice to see this classic comedy uncut on commercial tape.
