The Jerk (1979)
Steve Martin's first starring role was as gullible, dimwitted--but likable--boob Navin R. Johnson. Follow Navin's hilarious journey from his humble beginnings in a Southern shanty to wealthy eyeglass innovator and back to poverty. Bernadette Peters and Jackie Mason co-star in this wild collection of pratfalls and sight gags from director Carl Reiner and co-scripter Martin. 94 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: Spanish, French; featurettes.
