About the Movie
When a poor little rich girl (Donna Butterworth) is suddenly orphaned, one of her six wacky uncles – all played by Jerry Lewis – will be selected as her guardian. The nine-year-old heiress can visit each one, and decide which uncle would be the ideal candidate to take her in. But the selection process won't be easy – only one of the men is truly, genuinely sincere... and all the rest have their eyes on her $30 million inheritance! A sparkling comedy gem that also stars Sebastian Cabot.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Lewis makes the camera a prism to break out the divergent, and even conflicting, strands of his own character.
Fresh: With The Family Jewels, Lewis seems more willing than ever to acknowledge his own hostility towards being dismissed as a kids' entertainer.
I absolutely love it.
This movie has enchanted me ever since I was a just a little girl. The story is sensational and Jerry Lewis never disappoints. Nothing like the movies that they make now a days though, it's even more wonderful. It's something that you would be pleased and delighted to show children and grandchildren without nervously having to keep your finger over the mute or fast forward buttons. I realize old movies can seem boring, but given a chance, they're truly the best movies ever made! This movie in particular, is a hilarious, refreshing, entertaining, heart warming, and spectacular film for any and all ages.
