      Adrian Turner Time Out Last (and one of the best) of the Martin and Lewis comedies. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Jean-Luc Godard Cahiers du Cinéma Tashlin indulges a riot of poetic fancies where charm and comic invention alternate in a constant felicity of expression. The plot is thin, certainly, but the merit is all the greater. Sep 16, 2021 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Nov 5, 2004 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis team up for the last time (aw shucks!). Rated: C Jan 19, 2004 Full Review Film4 Staff Film4 The final screen collaboration of Martin and Lewis was in this splendidly enjoyable musical comedy, which, like many of its peers, fills out its slender story with songs and general stupidity.

      Carlos T Filme: Ou Vai ou Racha Elenco: @jerry.lewis.admirer @jerrylewisbrasil @deanmartinofficial Anita Ekberg, Pat Crowley Modelo: #comedia #romance #musical Duração: 1h 35m Ano: 1956 Minha opinião: Quando falam de Jerry e Dean, logo lembro da Seção da Tarde, que assisti por várias vezes na minha infância. Nesta parceria de Jerry e Dean durou por 17 filmes e vale destacar aqui: O Palhaço do Batalhão, O Biruta e o Folgado, O Marujo Foi na Onda, Morrendo de Medo, Sofrendo da Bola, A Barbada do Biruta, Farra dos Malandros, O Meninão, Artistas e Modelos e este filme foi o ultimo desta parceria. A estoria conta Malcoln (Jerry) que ticke de sorte e com isso ele tem bilhete que concorre a um lindo carro, mas temos o vigarista Steve (Dean) que tem os bilhetes clonados e quando anuncia o vencedor, tem 2 e assim tem que dividir o prêmio e para isso concordam em ir até Hollywood e chegando lá vender o carro e repartir o dinheiro. E nesta viagem Steve que enganar Malcon por várias vezes, mas não consegue, ainda mais quando o cão de Malcoln também irá na viagem. E ainda para dificultar os planos de Steve, eles dão carona Terry. Pronto esta viagem será bem animada e divertida com muita risada e Steve tendo uma caída por Terry e Malcoln sempre com seu ticke de sorte até quando chegam em um cassino. E assim vão até Hollywood, onde depois de vender o carro cada um segue seu caminho, mas por pouco tempo, porque acaba se reencontrando em um studio de gravação onde esta Anita que se enrosca com o cão e Malcon e assim todos tem um final feliz. Um filme ralmente com a cara de Seção da Tarde. Um filme para relembrar e dar boas gargalhadas e ver o estilo de comédia daquela época década de 50. E também por ser o ultimo filme desta parceria que fez a alegria de muita gente e que com o mesmo enredo sempre deu certo, do conquistador e picareta Dean e do bobalhão mas sempre certinho Jerry. E claro com bons musicais. Roteiro e enredo já conhecido da dupla, mas que nunca enjoou e sempre deu certo. Vale apena assistir? sim Nota: Pela historia e de tudo que envolve 8 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review ashley h Hollywood or Bust is a disappointing film. It is about a singer who can't pay his bookie joins a nerdy, star-struck movie fan and his Great Dane in a cross-country convertible ride to Hollywood. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Frank Tashlin did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Although the last outing for Martin & Lewis, the tension doesn't show. Not enough of Dino singing, a little too much of Jerry mugging, but a fine farewell for the Beatles of comedy. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review kevin w The last film the boys did together is a throwaway, both of them having done 10 years of their act, so their routines were familiar to them both (and to us). Still, whether either of them would admit it by this stage (Martin reportedly told Lewis angrily once that "all you are to me is a dollar.") or not, their chemistry continued to pop. While certainly their routine is dated, a smile or two is still within their grasp as this work demonstrates. Pat Crowley and Anita Ekberg are little more than window dressing to the boys antics, and they're not bad, but in this film a Great Dane has more to do. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The boys sign off with unbridled joy--End of an era!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member i love jerry lewis and dean martin they did great movies together... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
