About the Movie

Imagine calling the cops to restore law and order – and Jerry Lewis shows up? In his first film without longtime partner Dean Martin, Lewis plays Sidney Pythias, a bumbling janitor caught up in the middle of a gang rumble. Mistaken for a member of the switchblade set, Sidney is encouraged to undergo a 180-degree transformation – from street hoodlum to full-fledged policeman! Darren McGavin (A Christmas Story) is the reluctant law enforcement officer who must mold Lewis into a respectable man-in-blue at the Police Academy. But with all the chaos, disorder and trouble Sidney manages to unleash during his training and development, just who will the police call for help?!

Customer Reviews

The Delicate Delinquent

I was a kid when this movie came out, I loved it then, & I still love it now. I like Jerry as the clown, but when he's not playing the clown I like him even better. In this movie you get both, the serious side comes out, & he's the kind of guy you'd want by your side as your partner. If I had to pick my favorite Jerry Lewis show it would be The Nutty Professor, but believe me The Delicate Delinquent is a very close 2nd.
