Way... Way Out (1966, USA) C-101m. SCOPE ** D: Gordon Douglas. Starring Jerry Lewis, Connie Stevens, Robert Morley, Dennis Weaver, Howard Morris, Brian Keith, Dick Shawn, Anita Ekberg, Milton Frome, Linda Harrison, James Brolin. Misfire about astronaut Lewis, who becomes a candidate for a year-long stay at a moon station, but he needs a wife within three days. Stevens finally agrees to go, and up on the moon they meet Russian couple Shawn and Ekberg. Some nice set decoration, 60s flavor, but this has very few laughs, and it takes forever till Jerry appears. Subpar for the comedian, some even consider this a bomb. Score by Lalo Schifrin. Title song by Jerry's son Gary and his band The Playboys.
