Storyline

The Big Mouth  While fishing on a San Diego beach, Gerald Clamson catches … a sea diver! Even more weird, the “fish” resembles him. The man, who is not (yet) dead, reveals his secret to the peaceful angler: he is in fact a mobster who has cheated his associates out of their diamonds. What does not help Gerald at all is that the other hoods are persuaded HE is the double-crosser they are supposed to have done away with. Will he get himself out of such a tight situation? He will of course, but not without a little help from Suzie, the girl he only has eyes for!

A classic Lewis comedy

The Big Mouth  Why this Jerry Lewis comedy isn’t better known or more widely available is a mystery since it’s a classic and as consistently funny as anything he did. Here the slapstick verges on the surreal while its ‘thriller’ plot is virtually irrelevant. As well as starring, Jerry wrote, produced and directed and if it never amounts to anything more than a series of sketches they are, at least, very funny. It’s certainly a movie ripe for rediscovery that, for now at least, will have to settle for ultimate cult status.

It is a great break from the routine movie, a chance to giggle and laugh.

 
The Big Mouth  Jerry Lewis is a transitionalist between Vaudevillian slapstick and today’s one liner comedic actors. In the Big Mouth, Jerry executes his humor with finesse. Younger audiences perhaps wouldn’t enjoy this movie due to its lack of explicit sex, strong language, and graphic violence. That is exactly what makes this movie attractive. It is a great break from the routine movie, a chance to giggle and laugh. It is a good story that could be remade today into a suspense or comedy. Jerry shows his ability to be a flexible actor. Susan Bay was likewise good for her first starring role.
