#254- The Jerk

Quick recap: A poor black child (played by Steve Martin) grows up to find fame and fortune, only to have it cruelly taken away.


Fun (?) fact: The cat juggler (who looks awfully similar to Martin) is credited as being played by ‘Pig Eye Jackson’).


Good ol’ Pig Eye

My thoughts: I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one: The Jerk was ridiculously funny and absurd and I’m kicking myself for not watching it sooner.

Some favorite scenes and/or quotes:


He hates these cans!


Shithead really put up with a lot


Final review: 5/5. Should be a staple of anyone’s movie collection

Up next: Gold Diggers of 1933
