The Delicate Delinquent

"Weak"

The Delicate Delinquent Review


Jerry Lewis's first sans-Dino flick (Martin didn't want to be seen on screen in a police uniform) isn't anything special, but its goofy premise -- a janitor is mistaken for a hoodlum, and he is "rehabilitated" by an oblivious policeman -- might win him a few converts. The gags aren't terribly good or bad, but a gibberish-filled fight with a Japanese wrestler (not exactly a sumo wrestler, but whatever) is somewhat memorable.
