    Steve Martin's funniest three films, The Jerk, The Lonely Guy, and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, are collected in the Wild and Crazy Comedy Collection with some corny bonus material that pales in comparison to Martin's stunning comedic performances. In The Lonely Guy, Martin's dejected character wanders New York streets with his fern plant searching for a lady to love. Scenes in which Martin calls his lady from his rooftop amidst scores of other lonely guys, or jogs into a diner wearing fake, spray-on sweat, seem more slapstick with each viewing. Martin's masterpiece is The Jerk, about Navin Johnson, a white guy born a "poor black child," who sets out for the city to become somebody. Navin, with hobo rucksack in tow, takes his dad's three rules--Don't trust whitey, Lord loves a workin' man, and See a doctor and get rid of it--to an extreme, after becoming a millionaire from inventing a reading glasses apparatus. Co-starring Bernadette Peters, The Jerk's bizarre humor still feels fresh in its satirical examination of race and class. Watching Navin change from a poor black child, to a gas station attendant, to a millionaire, to a drunken egomaniac, to a homeless bum, illustrates Martin's sheer talent for character sketching. If this Wild and Crazy Comedy Collection is a cake, The Jerk is definitely the icing. --Trinie Dalton

    5.0 out of 5 stars A real bargain for the Steven Martin aficionado... December 19, 2007
    Format:DVD
    This is a five star rating of three DVDs as a bargain, which is different from rating each movie as a five star movie.

    In this collection of three movies done early in his acting career, Steve Martin is cast in roles taking advantage of his unique forms of comedy, slapstick, and sophistication. We have:

    - **** Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (with its use of cameos from other films and the infamous "Friends and Enemies of Carlotta" list),

    - ***** The Jerk (a cult classic... "He hates cans!), and

    - *** The Lonely Guy ( the sleeper... literally something in between the comedy of The Jerk and "seriousness" of Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid).

    The weaker movie of the three is The Lonely Guy, a movie of the Neil Simon play, but if you consider it a freebie in this collection, there's no complaint!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good price, only fair picture quality July 29, 2012
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I brought this set because the price was good and for Dead Man Don't Wear Plaid, a clever smart movie
    that really wasn't appreciated by most.
    I have seen the movie on cable and the picture was excellent, unfortunately that is not the case with
    the version in this release. This version looks like it was shot through cheesecloth.
    The print was not cleaned up at all, there are various artifacts throughout.
    The picture quality for all the movies in this set is at most fair.
    See other reviewers comments for the plot lines to the movies.
    I don't know why The Lonely Guy is in this set, it should have been The Man With Two Brains.
    The movies in the Wild and Crazy collection are at least anamorphic widescreen.
    Ended purchasing Dead Man Don't Wear Plaid with out the other movies and while the picture is better,
    the movie is widescreen, but not anamorphic widescreen (16 x 9 enhanced).
    That means there are bars along the sides as well as the top and bottom.
    Too many times there is very little if any information about the quality of the movies.
    It should be a requirement that companies provide that information.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for the price March 16, 2009
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Three movies on two DVDs - don't know why they didn't just use 3 DVD - guess it saved a few pennies.
    Great classic Steve Martin flicks!

    I like all these movies and it was a good price to get all three together. It would have cost more for sure trying to buy them all separately.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Great Movies. April 10, 2013
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    The Jerk was the best. I forgot how funny this film was from way back when I first saw it. The lonely Guy was another gem that I forgot all about too. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid was very good in its own way too. I had never seen that one before. Money well spent. Steve is the Wildest & Craziest Guy!

    all three are top notch comedy in keeping with steve Martin's style of humor. If you like any of these try "Planes, Trains and Automobiles".
