Debt to Cinema 101: The Jerk

How sweet it is to bring Steve the gift that keeps on giving: trashy comedy gems from my list of favorites. This one is whacky, romantic, and too centered on getting a chuckle to be too offensive, right? Despite Carl Reiner’s first collab with the poor black child of this film being highly regarded, I found myself wondering if this was going to be another Bio-dome or Freddy Got Fingered.
