Rather lovely chaos

February 4, 2010 | Full Review…

There are a few sight gags that are funny, which keep it from being a complete waste.

Audience Reviews for The Disorderly Orderly

Quite boring and very silly, but The Disorderly Orderly, present one of the best car chase scenes ever made in movie history (in my opinion) and some funny moments. Another criative work by the team of Tashlin-Lewis.
