      ashley h Living It Up is a decent film. It is about a small-town station master who is accidentally exposed to radiation and told he has only a short time to live by a doctor. Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin give okay performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Norman Taurog did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor and music. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member One of Martin & Lewis' full-fledged musicals (an adaptation of the Broadway musical "Hazel Flagg") is colorful and breezy; Sheree North has a specialty dance. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Anyone's enjoyment of a Martin & Lewis movie is predicated on their enjoyment of Martin & Lewis to begin with. If you find the "handsome man and the monkey" concept that Lewis described funny, than this is a treat. Late enough in their career as a team that Lewis isn't always manic, this adaptation of Nothing Sacred still gives him plenty of room to flex his comedic persona, including a wonderful dance with North. And Martin gets to be romantic, charming, big brother-esque and warble 4 songs! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member a remake of 1937 carole Lombard vehicle 'nothing sacred' with lewis playing the Lombard part! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This starts off a bit better than the other Martin/Lewis films I've seen, basically because it has... a plot. A sorta Capra-esque plot, which works, but then the film basically spends no time doing anything with the plot, and all of its time with extended sketches that... shouldn't have been extended. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review nick k FINALLY, a Jerry Lewis movie which I found to actually be funny and where Jerry didn't on my nerves. Some the gags are a little old and simple, but they're funny. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
