The Jerk

This 1979 movie was directed by Carl Reiner and stars Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. Martin and Reiner wrote it with a lot of editing between their home and the set in a station wagon during a gas shortage. It is restricted but it is much milder than most films so rated these days. This is Steve Martin’s first in a very long list of movie credits and one of the best IMHO.
The 2005 DVD boasts one of the best set of bonus features Karen and I have ever experienced. It includes more footage from the incredible Lost Filmstrips of Father Carlos Las Vegas de Cordova which are so funny they make you cry and the most incredibly useful “Tonight You Belong to Me” ukulele tuning and playing guide you can can imagine.
Laughingly recommended.
