This is a funny, funny, funny film featuring Jerry Lewis in the time of "Cinderfella" and other notable movies. If you're not a Jerry Lewis fan, in general, it may be worth giving a try. If you don't like his brand of humor at all, this will miss the mark. If, however, you're not typically drawn to gag or slapstick humor but like the look and feel of early 1960s fare, you'll probably get a kick out of this movie (stylistically).

For perspective, I'm typically drawn to foreign, documentary and alt/indy films and avoid goofy comedy. But, this is one I'd consider keeping in my permanent collection - along w/"Cinderfella", which is kind of similar in how Lewis plays it and is also one of my favorite movies of all time (possibly 'cause I watched it a lot as a kid). The special, behind-the-scenes/making-of features on this disc are a nice bonus, too!

Jerry Lewis at his Best
James Layne | Benton, Tn | 05/31/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a fan of Jerry Lewis, and usually enjoy his movies. However, this one is my very favorite. I laughed all the way through on this one, and the laughs were not just giggles, they were side splitting, lose your breath kind of laughs! A great movie that I highly recommend."
A cartoonish comedy
Salvador Fortuny Miró | Tarragona , Spain | 01/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A big doll-house is the spectacular set of this stylished comedy, the second movie of Lewis as filmmaker, with the cartoon-style, sarcastic comicity, oniric visual imagination, calculated gag timing and technical curiosity characteristic in Lewis' cinematographic creations. The day of his college graduation, Herbert Heebert ( Jerry Lewis ) discovers that is being dumped by his childhood sweetheart. Heartbreaked and bored of women he decides to abandon his town and takes a job as servant in Miss Wellonmellon's house, a retired opera star, cheated by this and her housekeeper, only to discover the next morning he has been hired at an all-female boarding house. Creative direction, George Raft and Buddy Lester's funny cameos, patiently cooked sight-gags that frequently deepens into cartoon imaginary and a musical surreal sequence with Harry James and his band makes " The ladies man " one of Lewis' best films.

Widescreen edition. Extras: deleted scenes; theatrical trailer and commentaries by Lewis and Steve Lawrence."
Cinematic Jerry
Scott T. Rivers | Los Angeles, CA USA | 10/06/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

""The Ladies Man" (1961) survives as a dazzling vehicle for Jerry Lewis' filmmaking virtuosity. A decidedly thin premise (girl-shy Jerry unknowingly takes a job at an all-female boarding house) becomes a showcase for some of Lewis' most audacious camera work. The lavish interior set is a stunning creation and Jerry's sight gags are among his best. Transferred from an excellent 35mm print, the DVD edition includes plenty of extras and a commentary track by Lewis and Steve Lawrence."
