* SoBadItsGood: The movie has been screened privately for select Hollywood insiders and this is often the reaction. Harry Shearer once saw the film and in a subsequent interview with ''Spy'' magazine compared the viewing experience to suddenly encountering "a black velvet painting of Auschwitz":

-->"With most of these kinds of things, you find
that it the anticipation, or the concept, is better than the thing itself. But seeing this film was "perfect really awe-inspiring, in that you are rarely in the presence of a perfect object. This was a perfect object. This movie is so drastically wrong, its awfulness". pathos and its comedy are so wildly misplaced, that you could not, in your fantasy of what it might be like, improve on what it really is. "Oh My God!"—that's all you can say."
The other frequent reaction is that it's just utterly without redeeming merit.

* DudeNotFunny: While the story is more of a drama, the comedic elements set within a Nazi concentration camp and the plot revolving around children being put to death is a little much.

* OvershadowedByControversy: A twofer, as it's a movie with a controversial plot that Jerry Lewis prefers to never release.

Added DiffLines:

* MisBlamed: Many people believe this was Lewis' project alone. While he did write the final treatment and direct it, the original script was around for a decade before he was involved and, as mentioned in the synopsis, there were many problems with the production that Lewis had nothing to do with.
