Song lyrics to Here’s to Love as performed by Dean Martin in My Friend Irma

Here’s a toast to the most romantic intention
It’s that art of the heart most worthy of mention
So pay attention here’s to love here’s to love
Here’s to all that love can stand for
It’s a wishful wonderland for just you

DVD review of The King of Comedy (1982), starring Jerry Lewis, Robert Deniro

 Jerry LewisThe King of Comedy is not the typical Jerry Lewis movie.  It’s not a comedy. It’s not for the children.  It isvery dark comedy (although rated PG). The King of Comedy looks at the behind-the-scenes life of Jerry Langford. Played straight, and brilliantly, by Jerry Lewis. He’s a talk-show host seemingly similar to Jay Leno or David Letterman.

Funny Bones

Editorial review of Funny Bones, courtesy of

Funny Bones, directed by Peter Chelsom (Hear My Song), is a weird but intriguing comedy with a particularly dark edge. Oliver Platt plays a would-be comedian, the son of a major comedy star (Jerry Lewis); Dad’s reputation even overshadows his son’s Las Vegas debut. After that flop the son tries to go back to his roots and heads for his father’s launch pad in Blackpool, England. There, he meets his previously unknown half-brother (Lee Evans), a bizarre comedy savant who teaches him a thing or two about taking risks to get laughs, and discovers a secret about how his father got started. Platt is likably lost and Lewis is perfectly overbearing, but the real find here is Evans, a rubber-faced, protean comic with always-surprising material. –Marshall Fine
