Jerry Lewis show with his particular talent as a botcher young who falls in love with a rich girl

Norman Phiffier (Jerry Lewis) is a bungler young whose previous jobs include that of caddy , TV repairman, and Paramount Theater usher. Barbara (Jill St. John) is a very rich girl posing as an elevator-girl and falls in love with Norman . He now works as a store clerk in a large department store. Clumsy and inept, he set loose in store and can't do anything right . Boy are they in trouble . But , Barbara's mother (Agnes Morehead) doesn't want her daughter to marry such a poor man. Amusing and spasmodic comedy with the genius comic Jerry Lewis acting in his stereotyped role by relinquishing creative control and concentrating on humor based on destruction and wreak havoc , nice inventive bits , skilfully combining the entertainment with the amusement. It features quick editing , wild and outrageous gags , and extremely odd angles. Enjoyable film with characters genuine and sympathetic , it is plenty of humor , tongue-in-cheek , side-splitting sight gags and amusement . Director Frank Tashlin introduces cinematic especial techniques in animated cartoon style , such as odd camera angles, montage and quickly paced editing , as some shots lasting only five frames long . Jerry Lewis is top-notch playing a botcher and meek store clerk ; Jerry played similar character as a bumbling idiot in other films such as a caddy in ¨The Caddy¨ and a TV repairman in both ¨Rock-a-Bye Baby¨ and ¨It's Only Money¨. The co-starring role stands out Jill St. John , surely the most gorgeous girl any clerk ever had . Excellent support cast formed by likable secondaries as Ray Walston as Mr. Quimby , John McGiver as Mr. John P. Tuttle and special mention to Agnes Moorehead as Mrs. Phoebe Tuttle . Furthermore , watch rapidly to veteran Kathleen Freeman . Colorful and shimmer cinematography in Technicolor by Wallace Kelley and catching musical score . The motion picture was well directed by Frank Tashlin , one of the few directors to successfully make the transition from animation to live-action , as he directed his cartoons like live-action films and his live-action films like cartoons . He directed various vehicles for Jerry Lewis as ¨The Geisha boy¨, ¨Hollywood or Bust¨ , ¨Rock-a-Bye Baby¨ , ¨Cinderfella¨ and for Bob Hope as ¨The son of Paleface¨ . Who's minding the store ? is considered to be one of his best films . Rating : 6,5 . Entertaining and amusing movie that it will appeal to Jerry Lewis fans . Worthwhile watching .

Frank Tashlin's Effects Delight

This film got a lot of prime time television play. There is no wonder why. Jerry Lewis gets benefits here not just from Jill St. John and a great supporting cast, but Tashlin's special effects sequences show a lot of imagination in this film. Veteran comedy writer Harry Tugend and Tashlin combine on the script from Tugend's story. Despite all the special effects that are funny by themselves, Lewis manic comedy style is put into the script in a way that makes more sense than some of his other films. It's a match made in comedy, for sure. Ray Walston is solid from Mars supporting, and Richard Deacon from Dick Van Dyke, Abbott & Costello, and many other supporting roles is his baldy self.John McGiver, Agnes Moorehead, Nancy Kulp,and more are plenty of great support people. Kulp who was Drysdales secretary on The Beverly Hillbillies was so so good in so many supporting roles. Mooreheads Endora on Bewitched. Even Barbara Pepper, Mrs. Fred Ziffel on Green Acres gets a turn in this one. Lewis(Norman Phiffier) is a manic store clerk who gets into trouble at every job in the big department store. The imagination and physical comedy levels for Lewis are very high in this one. This is a film to enjoy everything and it was very popular when it ran on prime time TV (CBS I believe) years ago.

Full of funny people without anything funny to do...

Jerry Lewis slapstick vehicle has the star playing a dog-sitter/poodle-walker who wants to marry department store elevator operator Jill St. John--but she's working incognito (she's really the boss's daughter). Lewis is hired by the store president's domineering wife to show St. John what an incompetent Jerry is...and he's doesn't exactly prove her wrong. Jerry Lewis loose in a department store and it's not a laugh riot? Surely this scenario should have resulted in some great sight-gags and satire, but all we seem to get are product advertisements and bungling Lewis making faces. Director Frank Tashlin, who also co-scripted with Harry Tugend from Tugend's original treatment, wastes a lot of first-class comedic talent such as Agnes Moorehead, John McGiver, Nancy Kulp and Kathleen Freeman, all on dumb, misfired episodes. Ray Walston's prissy, irate flunky is a constant nuisance, although St. John is a nice addition to the mix and there are admittedly some big laughs with the overzealous vacuum cleaner. *1/2 from ****
