The film ‘The Jerk’ features Steve Martin as the main character Navin Johnson. Navin is a disabled white person who at first thought he was black. As the movies goes on he ends up leaving his home, getting jobs, inventing glasses, then he becomes a millionaire off of his invention. He sends money to his family too. But eventually after becoming rich and buying a mansion and so many different goods that he didn’t need, the worst thing ends up happening and he gets sued for causing people who bought his glasses to turn cross-eyed. He then loses all of his money and his wife and become a homeless man on the street. At the end of the movie he wife and family, who are now rich, come to find him to take him home.
My favorite character in the movie was definitely Navin Johnson, the main character. I liked how his attitude changed throughout the movie and how he reacted to some situations he was put in. I also thought he was the funniest.
I feel as if the moral of the film is to not take what you have for granted.
My opinion of the film overall was that it was very good. I enjoyed it very much and thought it had a good meaning behind it and it was also very funny.
I would definitely watch the movie again.
I definitely recommend this film. Especially to someone I know who may take things for granted. Or just to someone I know that likes Steve Martin or funny movies.
Navin demonstrated positive work ethic during all of the scenes he had a job in. He always did what his boss told him and helped costumers when they needed it. He demonstrated teamwork skills when he would help his boss do different jobs at the gas station. Self-representation is demonstrated by the way he dresses during work and after he was rich, he always tried to look his best. He demonstrated conflict-resolution when he chased the little kid on the train and figured out how to help him.
