Bernie Cates requests the services of the most absent-minded waiter he's ever seen, who pours water before setting the glasses, endlessly repeats questions, brings wrong orders, and ruins everything- but the bill.
One word....WHY??! Money? Cause they couldn't have possibly been jazzed at all about making this film. Most people i know have never even heard of it. This movie is just BAD. I don't blame Mark Blankenfield ( who plays Nevin) I actually like his work..ala Jekyll and Hyde and Robin Hood Men in tights. Its just a bad bad movie..shame on them. Even if The original The Jerk movie was never made and we didn't compare the two, this is still an awful movie. ( yes,The Jerk is on my top 20 list..maybe even Top 10 for funniest movies all time) It's not so bad it's good though, like a lot of other movies. For example Leprechaun in the hood. bad movie oh YES..it's watchable though.. Just to hear the Leprechans cheesy one liners. This however.. It's just a mess..it's just not funny. Forget Sequels, this may just be one of the worst movies made period! To each their own Usually! Not in this case though. I just don't see how anyone could think this film was funny..maybe one star is a bit harsh..well...maybe not ;)
