The Jerk is a 1979 American comedy film directed by Carl Reiner and written by Steve Martin, Carl Gottlieb, and Michael Elias. This was Martin’s first starring role in a feature film. Johnson is the white adopted son of black sharecroppers, who grows to adulthood naïvely unaware of his obvious adoption. Bale grab stands out in his family not just because of his skin color but because of his utter lack of rhythm when his adoptive family plays spirited blues music. Navin gets a job and room at a gas station owned by Harry Hartounian. He is thrilled to find that he is listed in the local phone book, as his name is «in print» for the first time. Not long after, a gun-wielding lunatic randomly flips through the phone book and picks «Johnson, Navin R.

As the madman watches through his rifle scope, waiting for a clear shot, Navin fixes the slippery glasses of a customer, Stan Fox, by adding a handle and a nose brake. At an emotional and financial low, Navin is soon contacted by Stan Fox with exciting news: his glasses invention, now called the Opti-Grab, is selling big and he is entitled to half of the profits. Now extremely rich, he finds and marries Marie, and they buy an extravagant mansion. Their life becomes one of splendor and non-stop partying. Navin winds up homeless living on the streets.

His story now told, he accepts himself to a life of misery and bittersweet memories of Marie. But to his amazement and joy, she suddenly appears, along with Navin’s family and Shithead, bringing additional good news: having carefully invested the small sums of money Navin sent home throughout the film, his family have become wealthy themselves. By 1977, comedian Steve Martin was experiencing wild success. He wished to cross over to a film career, believing it promised more longevity. Picker moved to Universal Studios around this time, and moved the film along with him. Martin was able to pick which director he wanted to work with, and chose Carl Reiner, famous for his work on The Dick Van Dyke Show.

It needs to be something short, yet have the feeling of an epic tale,» Martin remarked. Like Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot, but not that. Martin wrote the part of «Marie» with Bernadette Peters in mind. He adapted several bits of his standup act to fit within the film, such as a monologue in which he emotionally exits a scene, remarking «I don’t need anything,» but nevertheless picking up each object he passes on his way out. In shooting the film, Reiner «ran a joyful set», according to Martin, with the cast and crew eating lunch together each day. Martin’s favorite moment of the film, as he detailed in his 2007 memoir Born Standing Up, was the scene in which he and Peters sing «Tonight You Belong to Me».

A scene in which Bill Murray was to have made a cameo was cut from the final film. Navin was running at the carnival—was only in the theatrical version and thus edited out in future versions. Another scene that was cut featured Gailard Sartain as a Texas oil millionaire who tearfully begs Navin for money to replace the cracked, dried-out leather seats on his private jet. Navin grants his request and he gratefully states, «Now I can fly my friends to the Super Bowl like a MAN, and not some damned BUM! 41 reviews, with an average rating of 6. 14 critics, indicating «generally favorable reviews». Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote that The Jerk «is by turns funny, vulgar and backhandedly clever, never more so than when it aspires to absolute stupidity.

The author of the review referred to Steve Martin’s silly, exaggerated acting as complementary to the early comedian Jerry Lewis. The Jerk has been praised as not only one of Martin’s best comedic efforts, but also one of the funniest films ever made. In 2000, readers of Total Film magazine voted The Jerk the 48th greatest comedy film of all time. Christiane Kubrick hailed it as one of Stanley Kubrick’s favorite films of all time. The film led Kubrick to write and direct the film Eyes Wide Shut, his first film succeeding a 12-year intermission which would ultimately become his last. In a 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Steve Martin was asked if the film would be accepted in this day and age with all of the «heightened racial sensitivity.

His response was that he hadn’t watched the movie himself in a very long time, but when he reflects on his experience with making the movie he recalls everyone being treated «with such respect» throughout the filming process.
