A classic and requisite film for any Steve Martin fan or comedy lover! Martin plays Navin, an idiot raised in Mississippi by a black family, who encounters misadventure after misadventure as he seeks his fortune in the world. He finds love (Bernadette Peters) and wealth only to learn how quickly you can lose it all. Martin shines in his feature debut directed by Carl Reiner.
