4.0 out of 5 stars Don't forget me, February 7, 2013
This review is from: Method To Madness of Jerry Lewis (DVD)
The 2011 documentary METHOD TO THE MADNESS OF JERRY LEWIS caused me to look up just how long it's been since I saw a new movie Jerry Lewis directed or in which he acted. As I write this in 2013, it's been thirty years since Lewis was the director-star of the film CRACKING UP, his last feature unless you count small roles here and there.

Thirty years! Now, since then Jerry Lewis's charitable work and television appearances have kept him in the limelight and there probably isn't a minute per day where one of his films isn't playing somewhere on television. But viewing METHOD TO THE MADNESS OF JERRY LEWIS, you may realize that while it's not as though the public doesn't remember Lewis, some may have forgotten about his talent as a performer and filmmaker.

But don't take my word for it, especially with Steven Spielberg, Eddie Murphy, Carol Burnett, Carl Reiner, Chevy Chase, Jerry Seinfeld, and Quentin Tarantino among the Lewis fans who remind us of his considerable contributions to the arts. Of all interviewed in METHOD TO THE MADNESS OF JERRY LEWIS Tarantino is the last one I'd expect to be a Lewis fan, yet he offers the most compelling observations about the actor-director.

While you could knock METHOD TO THE MADNESS OF JERRY LEWIS for seeming to shy away from any criticism of Lewis as either an artist or an individual, its clips of his personal appearances do not hide his tendency to get corny and even smug now and then. I don't think that's by accident. He's human like the rest of us, and this documentary puts that out there.

See METHOD TO THE MADNESS OF JERRY LEWIS.

Your getting close here! Lewis is so great he's somewhere in another world, and video says this! He will be timeless and will easily be given more attention after he is dead, than any past president or movie star or anything, Jerry was the only kid from his parents, didn't anyone see this? He will have a wonderful museum that will endlessly make people laugh and laugh hard. Its the method the method the method didn't anyone see this? I would like to have all these critics put in a room, where they were to watch this picture and have everyone that laughs take an article of clothing off, and see how many would wind up nude? Hey, lets give Jerry some credit here, he is something more ... undescrible and many of those film participants said this, you can not define this man's greatness! He comes from a galaxy beyond us, and he was sent here to make us laugh and remind us its part of life to enjoy! Case closed and sorry you missed the mark here!
