Movie Reviews

Low Budget Fun Fest | Long Island USA | 09/17/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This film is not as bad as the title would make it seem.
Duke Mitchell & Sammy Petrillo are the poor man's Martin and Lewis.
Petrillo's "humor" makes Jerry Lewis appear understated in comparison and I'm sure Dino never felt threatened by Duke.
Bela Lugosi turns in his usual credible mad scientist performance.
Charlita plays the love interest and is smokin' HOT, scantily attired in her best South Sea togs.
The video and audio quality are very good as was the print used for the transfer.
Add another star if you're a diehard Lugosi fan."
Sammy left his wife and 4 kids in 1969

"Sammy is often deemed a cult hero for his work in this film. While he is a funny man, he is far from being a hero. He left his wife and four small children in 1969. They came home to find that he had moved back to New York. He did at least leave them with a dollar. I know, I was 7 years old at the time. I'm one of the 4 sons he left. The oldest. Our last names are slightly different as he changed his to try to benefit from the current head of the musicians union at the time; who bore the last name Petrillo (same name as my brothers and I, new spelling)."
If this movie were any more of a dog, it would have shed all
Nick Denife | Cleveland, Ohio United States | 10/29/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was basically a vehicle for Sammy Petrillo and Duke Mitchell, who were kind of a low-rent Martin & Lewis. Sammy had, in fact, appeared on a Dean & Jerry TV show as Jerry's infant son. He was 17 at the time this movie was made and shamelessly imitates Lewis in it, but he does it very well! He looks amazingly like him and although his voice gets grating when he yells (which he spends a lot of the movie doing), his imitation is first rate.

This movie was obviously knocked off in about a week's time (including writing, no doubt) and made it into theaters despite threats from Jerry Lewis to sue the studio. I think we would have been better off if they DID burn the prints.

BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORILLA is about as good as it sounds. It has a simplistic, not-a-thought-in-its-head story, incredibly unfunny jokes, dull direction, dinner-theatre level performances, and


in the end, it all turns out to be a dream!

If only I could chalk watching this movie up to being a nightmare, we'd all be happy. Absolutely not to be missed under any circumstances."
