When warden Henry Brubaker goes undercover in a penitentiary, he sets out to improve the system, but the more he reforms, the more enemies he makes.
That wild and crazy guy, Steve Martin, makes his film-starring debut in the wacky comedy hit The Jerk. Steve plays Navin Johnson, the adopted son of a poor black sharecropper family, whose crazy inventions lead him from rags to riches...right back to rags. Steve propels Navin through a string of misadventures-becoming smitten with a lady motorcycle racer, surviving a series of screwball attacks by a deranged killer, and becoming a millionaire by inventing the "Opti-grab" handle for eyeglasses-and shows why he's one of the hottest comic performers in the world.
A complete imbecile struggles to make it through life on his own, until a strange invention makes him unbelievably wealthy.
