CANNES REVIEWS OF MAX ROSE ARE SCATHING


If this is the best the 'great' Jerry Lewis can do, I wonder what the best a female comedian could do is? Lewis has a large fanbase in France, and received a standing ovation after the premiere of his return to the screen, Max Rose, but critics have been less than complimentary.

The story of a man who comes to question the state of his marriage after the death of his wife, the dreadful reviews have come from critics such as David Rooney at The Hollywood Reporter, Craig Skinner at Hey U Guys and Rob Nelson at Variety, who brands Lewis' return to film acting 'excruciating.' A fitting tribute, then, wouldn't you say?
