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’).
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:
Final review: 5/5. Should be a staple of anyone’s movie collection
Up next: Gold Diggers of 1933
