    In one of the most controlling eras of Hollywood, being able to do something so out of any standard has to be praised forever. Of course Jerry Lewis was one of the greatest stars of the period, but the achievement is still impressive. A series of sketches, almost no narrative, all in favor of elevating the physicality of the star.

It's the late 70's or 80's big studio blockbuster that Guardians of the Galaxy wanted to be, but couldn't. I guess that Warner only gives this kind of amount for Wachowski's flicks because they really hope they will, one day, make another Matrix sequel, since a movie like this one is a certain box office flop nowadays.
