Film of the Day (08/01/18): The Jerk

 

Written By Steve Martin and Carl Gottlieb and Michael Elias
Directed By Carl Reiner

This is another old school comedy I’d been meaning to check out for years. It’s wildly hit-and-miss, with it’s funny moments getting big laughs and other gags produce a silence so clear you will sense a tumbleweed rolling through the living room. It’s undeniably stupid, which is the source of its strengths and weaknesses. It was a breeze to get through, but not Martin’s best work.
