Critic Reviews for The Caddy

All Critics (6)

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.

Typical Jerry Lewis vehicle.

January 15, 2006 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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.

August 21, 2005 | Rating: b- | Full Review…

Standard Martin and Lewis vehicle. A little better than some.
