Poor Jerome Littlefield (Jerry Lewis). He wants to be a doctor ? but that?s not exactly the perfect career choice when you?re hopelessly squeamish. So he settles for the job of orderly at the Whitestone Sanitarium, a career move that?s guaranteed to keep the patients ? and viewers ? in stitches! The fun begins with Sammy Davis, Jr.?s rendition of the film?s title song and continues as the bumbling Jerome, a one-man disaster area, triggers chaos every time he tries to lend a helping hang. From causing the patients more trauma to a high-speed ambulance chase, Lewis and his healthy does of comic mishaps are the perfect prescription for all that ails you.

As I watched this typical juvenile, stupid comedy starring Jerry Lewis I was struck by my own maturation from a child who laughed uproariously at these antics to becoming a adolescent who tolerated Jerry and then into adulthood where he is looking so contrived that I am disgusted by an adult behaving this way and calling it comedy. Jerry Lewis was one smart guy who probably thought himself head and shoulders above those around him. In the Disorderly Orderly you can see that even Jerry sees his screen persona as ridiculously intolerable for normal intelligent people. I was going to rate this film one-half-star but the ambulance(s) out of control at the end of the picture saved it.
