Great Movie
1 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Jerk Too is a great family film with Innocent laughter about the simple things in life. It's about a very naive fully grown man with the mentality of a seven year old. Navin Johnson is the man that does not know what is going on, which direction to take, how to get there or how long it will take, but he has already started walking.

The humor in this character is something that everyone can relate to. Everyone at some point in their life has felt the exact same way as Navin only everyone else was at least a decade and a half younger.

Those of you who were disappointed in this film, please keep in mind that it was written by the exact same people who wrote the first film. It was not a flop, a stolen idea, or any kind of spin off, they just wanted to do it differently. And they chose to do it differently.

Also keep in mind that it is not a sequel to the first movie. You can not watch both movies and see a common ground between the two main characters. Completely different characters, completely different plots, completely different movie altogether.
