"Lewis shows disarming vulnerability caring for the babies, his hot-bottle-induced pratfalls creating pathos along with laughs..."
Something of a remake of Sturges's THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN CREEK, except with Lewis's slapstick comedy subbing for Sturges's rapid-fire dialogue. Here, Lewis is called upon to baby sit a sexy movie star's (Maxwell) triplets because she doesn't want the public to know that she's had children. Of course, Lewis not only engages in some hilarious pratfalls with the three tykes, but also has trouble figuring out how to lie about who the mother of the triplets is. Since the setup for the film allows Lewis so much room to, well, be Jerry Lewis, this ends up being one his funnier and more satisfying films.
