Reviews
Mine: Several very funny moments, but overall too idiotic to be funny, or maybe I just can't stand Peters to the point where it ruins the movie for me. Martin goes on to do much better stuff!
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Martin's first starring feature is a hit-or-miss comedy about the misadventures of a terminally stupid man. Some very funny moments, but after a while they're spread pretty thin. Martin later produced a TV version, THE JERK, TOO.
