Every Jerry Lewis Movie, Ranked
More than 600 movie fans have come together to cast their votes for the best Jerry Lewis movies. The late actor and comedian was beloved by generations of fans, who appreciated his unique brand of physical comedy and larger-than-life performances. From slapstick comedies to heartfelt dramas, he left us with a body of work that continues to entertain audiences today.
The Nutty Professor is arguably one of the crown jewels in Lewis’ filmography. This classic 1963 comedy follows an insecure professor as he attempts to reinvent himself with a potion that turns him into suave alter ego Buddy Love - at least until the effects wear off. It remains one of his most iconic films and showcases his knack for taking on multiple personas within the same role.
Another favorite among fans is The King Of Comedy, which sees Lewis playing a talk show host who gets kidnapped by an aspiring comedian played by Robert De Niro. His performance in this darkly comedic drama earned him critical acclaim that sadly didn't last beyond this picture due to its box office failure at the time it was released.
So why not take a look through our list, vote up your favorites, and enjoy some classic Jerry Lewis films?
