Review [Dead] Lensed in black-and-white and outfitted with a 'straight' mystery score by Miklos Rozsa and authentic 1940s costumes by Edith Head, this spoof of film noir detective yarns sees Steve Martin interacting with 18 Hollywood greats by way of intercutting of clips from some 17 old pictures...Film is most engaging in its romantic sparring between Martin and his gorgeous client, Ward...Sporting dark hair and facetious confidence, Martin also looks spiffy in trenchcoat and hat. Only other roles off note see Carl Reiner essentially essaying Otto Preminger as a Nazi, and Reni Santoni as a zealous Peruvian offficer.

Review [Lonely] At times, the Steven Martin comedy The Lonely Guy resembles the kind of wacky gags found in the Zucker/Abrahams comedies such as Airplane!. But most of the time, the humor is played a little more straight than that. The running theme is that "Lonely Guy" is a universally recognized label for men without a special someone in their lives, and apparently no family either...The Lonely Guy is sidesplitting with a light touch of bittersweet, chronicling Steve Martin's efforts to cope with his Lonely Guy status. It builds solidly until taking a bizarre turn around the hour mark, goes downhill a bit, and drags on too long. But when all is said and done, it's quite satisfying.

Review [Jerk] One of Steve Martin's proto-characters, The Jerk isn't quite what his name suggests, he's really more of an idiot than a jerk. "Born a poor black man," the film follows his misadventures from the sharecrop farm to the big city, the circus, Hollywood, and ultimately fabulous wealth and bankruptcy, oblivious all the way. Ultimately he really does turn from sheer ignorant to wilfully awful, so maybe he's a jerk too... but that's beside the point. Martin's one-liners are pretty funny, very dry, and awfully quotable. Bernadette Peters, as the love of his life, appears in one of her most memorable roles, too.
