The origin of Anthony and Miller, a wildly successful comedy team, can be traced back several years to Harvey Miller's stage fright on the golf links. Although the son of a skilled golfer and an outstanding player in his one right, Miller is too nervous to golf in front of a gallery. He becomes coach and caddy for Joe Anthony, his girlfriend's brother, who must convince his fisherman father that hitting a little ball into a hole can be more lucrative than trawling the Pacific Ocean. While on the PGA tour, their natural comedic abilities are recognized by a shrewd agent who senses their talent and potential, and a new comedy team is born.Written by

"That's Amore", sung by Dean Martin, became a multi-million seller and one of his signature songs. The tune also appeared in the closing credits of Rear Window (1954) and is regarded as the theme song to Moonstruck (1987). An instrumental version can be heard in Houseboat (1958). See more »

[Feeling underdressed and out of his element]
I better make that 'good night.' I'm out of uniform.
You're positively stunning. So what if you left your dinner jacket at home?
I left it in Kansas City, but I can show you the pawn ticket.
I believe you. Shall we dance?
Only if I lead.
You can lead.

How can you go wrong with Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Donna Reed and Ben Hogan all in the same film?! The funniest of the Martin-Lewis pairings, with real-life players Sam Snead and Julius Boros adding to the goofy golf. Oscar-nominated song "That's Amoré" has been a classic for 45 years (it should have won the Academy Award; hear it again in "Moonstruck"). If you don't crack up when Jerry tells Bantam Ben "That's a wedge shot Mr. Hogan," then take up tennis.
