Steve Martin’s classic film The Jerk is one of the many classic comedies I hadn’t seen before. With Stripes and Caddy Shack it was strange, but with The Jerk, it’s simply moronic that I had not seen this film before.
The film is ridiculous and extreme. There aren’t many films that can pull off cat juggling, and still be a good film, Martin does this.
The Jerk is a film in a category unto itself. I can’t really think of any films with which one can compare it to, and that alone is something to be proud of. Steve Martin did an excellent job with this film,and 30 years later, it still stands up as an amazing film. See it.
