On the basis of the clips they showed, I have no interest in seeing Hardly Working. Hell, the last clip they showed when Jerry Lewis is working as a gas station attendant (which really dates the movie as nowadays only New Jersey and Oregon has gas station attendants), it looks like I’m watching a 70’s Disney comedy. I’m lucky that I saw The Howling a few years ago.
Hardly Working was one of the worst comedies I have ever seen! Jerry Lewis would be in a much movie called The King Of Comedy with Robert Deniro!
That Japanese stereotype may’ve seemed funny during WWII. But, in 1981, it was definitely offensive. Lewis seemed stuck in a time warp when Hardly Working was filmed. Thankfully, he took on a challenging role in King of Comedy and put on a very good performance.
They said Jerry Lewis hadn’t been on the screen for a decade. Well, since a project he did called The Day the Clown Cried wasn’t released, that is true.

Jim Danforth did the dinosaur effects…not Ray Harryhausen.
