The Jerk (26th Anniversary Edition) back to product details

Still Hilarious
written by jmwagner66 June 5, 2012 - 3:53 PM PDT
Sure there are a few weak points but so what. This is funny. Steve Martin took a few bits from his stage show, but they work pretty well. Some scenes still make me laugh out loud. I do remember being shocked by the language when the film first came out. It seems positively tame now.

It's also amusing to see what a change their have been in actors. Steve did not wax his alarmingly hairy physique for the shirtless and pantsless scenes. I don't think I've seen that much back hair in an American film in years, well, maybe on a villain or when the hair itself is part of the comedy bit.

This is well worth watching.
