Time Out says

Who but Jerry Lewis would have dreamed up this pot-pourri of comic fears as a bellboy is chosen to take the place of a dead comedian by his scriptwriters? Explicitly quoting Chaplin-style routines, Lewis bends the sentimentality into shape to produce a witty and magical essay on comedy, illusionism and fear. DMacp.
