Splashy colours and some fun songs don’t do much for this forgettable Martin and Lewis comedy. Dean Martin plays a cartoonist who is down on his luck for his inspiration until he realizes that Jerry Lewis‘s nocturnal dreams are a goldmine of ideas. Anita Ekberg appears as one of his models, and Shirley MacLaine is delightful as a romantic interest.
