Seattle television commentator Martin Crane has a domestic life worth reporting on air. Notable character innovation: a teenage son who operates very successful businesses from his room and makes loans to his parents.
Okay The Jerk is one of my all time favorite movies. I will even go as far to say that it is a standard for comedies. When I was watching cable a couple months ago I saw this pile of crud and I disturbed by every single second of it. First I laughed at how bad it was, then I was compelled by the fact that it could not get worse, but it did.
I Should have known though look at the cast. First you have Stacy Nelkin who stared in the most insulting chapter of the Halloween series (part 3), and you have Mark Blankfield in the title role. Now he was okay in Robin Hood men in tights, but come on the guy was in Angel 3.
Do yourself a favor and never put yourself through the pain of seeing this... well I was almost going to call it film but that would be an insult to every other movie ever created. Just don't watch this.
