The World's Greatest Lover: Terrible Movies #171
Gene Wilder directs, writes, produces, and acts in this slapstick comedy that somehow sucks all of the comedy out of Gene Wilder, Carol Kane and Dom Deluise. Let's watch a clip, shall we?
Um, yeah. There's a lot of that. Let's contrast and compare.
The scenes are similar, but there's clearly no comparison. The timing, the phrasing, the physicality, the hair. So, avoid The World's Greatest Lover and watch Young Frankenstein again. You know you want to. The World's Greatest Lover is on Netflix if you can't stop yourself.
