Reviews:  The character played by Jerry Lewis and “his dad” is my life except towards the end. Dad going on about sports, where Jerry’s about agriculture, and vet. My dad was heavily into sports and I really tried (like in the ’60s when I was a member of the Dolphins baseball team, and playing horribly, much too my dads dismay I am sure). One thing that elevates this movie, but at the end, Jerry tries sports and succeeds, why I didn’t. Oh well!

Jarring Jack Jackson, the greatest football player in Ridgefield College history, is disappointed that his only son Junior is an uncoordinated, allergy-ridden bookworm. He uses his athletic reputation and standing as #1 alumni contributor to pressure the coach to take Junior on the team. In addition, he pays the tuition of Junior's financially needy classmate Bill Baker, a potential all-American, with the understanding that he will room with Junior and mentor him athletically and socially. Junior's initial efforts as quarterback prove disastrous and further complications arise when the room mates both fall in love with the same co-ed. Plot complications become critical as the climactic homecoming game approaches.
