Published December 08, 2005.The JerkDirected by: Carl Reiner(Universal)Before Steve Martin was consciously smart, he was in this deceptively stupid comedy about a nomad who was born black and is afraid of cans, then gets rich enough to afford a bathtub shaped like a clam. For a 20th Anniversary Edition, the quantity of extras is lame. It's just nice to see the still fitfully hilarious movie finally receive a widescreen home video treatment.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
