Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Aside from one quite hilarious scene in which chimpfaced Jerry Lewis satirizes a decadent cosmopolitan playboy, he and his smug partner (Dean Martin) are as tiresome as usual in this golf farce. The kiddies, however, seem to adore it. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Typical Jerry Lewis vehicle. Rated: C+ Jan 15, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Norman Taurog's golf comedy stars Martin and Lewis at the height of their popularity as a team, but the picture became better known for its Oscar-nominated song That's Amore, Dean's first big hit. Rated: b- Aug 21, 2005 Full Review Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) Standard Martin and Lewis vehicle. A little better than some. Rated: 3/5 Mar 2, 2005 Full Review Carol Cling Las Vegas Review-Journal Rated: 3/5 Apr 16, 2004 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 3/5 Mar 11, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

Matthew D A Martin and Lewis classic! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies and best formula for Martin & Lewis, with Lewis as the Caddy and Martin as the cad. That's Amore is wonderfully done and there are some great bits of surreal humor. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Meh, Martin and Lewis comedy about golf expert Lewis, who's too nervous to actually play, coaching buddy Martin. Donna Reed plays the love interest and many golf legends of the era appear int eh film, including Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. Dean sings ``That's Amore.'' Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member martin lewis gupoof it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Like 'Scared Stiff', 'The Caddy' is one of Martin/Lewis's best efforts. It's warm, hilarious and enjoyable. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Once again...okay, but nothing great. I think it's Dean Martin's fault.
