Navin is an idiot. He grew up in Mississippi as adopted son of a black family. But at his 18th birthday he feels he wants to discover the rest of the world and sets out to St. Louis... Everyone exploits his naivety, but then a simple invention brings him a fortune.

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2010 (50 movies items)

"UNDER THE RADAR Steve Martin At the end of ‘70s, Steve Martin was a ridiculously successful stand up comic who developed a fervent fan base that would shout his jokes along with him. While this may have been a boon to many performers, it was a setback for Martin, as the audience reaction ruined the comic timing of the bit. The grueling work schedule of repetitive performances also began to take his toll, and Martin wanted to transition his legacy from a temporary stand up fad to a more endurin"

My Top 75 Favorite Romantic Comedies (75 movies items)

" Throughout his long and lustrous career, Steve Martin has been known as many things. A wild and crazy guy. King Tut. The New Pink Panther (*groan*). But for me, I will always think of him best as The Jerk. Now obviously, I mean that in a good way.
