24- #DLMChallenge “The Jerk”

For #24 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on March 3rd I watched: The Jerk. And call me a jerk but…

Lots of praise preceded my viewing of this film. The Jerk is an all-time classic comedy. I however, did not find this comedy to be a classic.

Now I love me some Steve Martin, and I did have a few chuckles here and there, but nothing to the level of The Pink Panther.

Ooh, you didn’t believe that did you?! Total joke.

Say what you will about my taste in comedies, but I just felt like I’ve missed the boat on this one.
