That wild and crazy guy, Steve Martin, makes his film-starring debut in the wacky comedy hit “The Jerk.” Steve portrays Navin Johnson, adopted son of a poor black sharecropper family, whose crazy inventions lead him from rags to riches and right back to rags. Along the way, he’s smitten with a lady motorcycle racer, survives a series of screwball attacks by a deranged killer, becomes a millionaire by inventing the “Opti-grab” handle for glasses—and shows why he’s one of the hottest comic performers in the world.
“‘The Jerk’ still holds up… the highlight moments guilty-pleasure us with the sort of stupid-funny that’s ‘LOL’ quotable afterward.” (DVD Journal)
“An oddball odyssey so strange, filled with non-sequiturs so funny, and decorated by a romance so sweet, it was an inevitable star-maker… an inspired, endlessly quotable classic.” (Quickflix)
