Who else but Steve Martin could've pulled this movie off? If you like wacky, nutty comedy, then see this movie. It is obviously a 70's movie, but the comedy is timeless. FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY - a classic.... Full review

One classic scene has him getting shot at by a crazy man (played by M Emmet Walsh), who picks his name out of the phone book.....If you enjoy seventies campy, crude, and rude comedy, with an over abundance of one-liners then this film is for you..... ... Full Review

Presented in 1:85:1 anamorphic widescreen for the first time, The Jerk looks great. The movie is fantastic, and it's great to see it in widescreen finally, but there's just nothing else for fans to peruse. The Jerk is a love it or hate it movie. ... Full Review

Despite all this, I have to say that I still find The Jerk to be a pretty lousy film. That happened with a decent movie in Prince of Tides and a shockingly terrific film in Good Will Hunting . While The Jerk didn't excel in this category ... Full Review
