The Jerk Cast List: Actors and Actresses from The Jerk
I love The Jerk. And with good reason, it's hilarious. It made the American Film Institue's list of the one hundred funniest movies, coming in at number 89, and made my list of my top ten favorite comedy movies. I had my five-stars all lined up I couldn't tell you whether or not it was because I was so charged up with anticipation over this release, but I found this DVD to be the most pathetic excuse for an "anniversary edition" that'd I've ever witnessed.
