Thats really easy. Bad movies require greater effort. Name any composer and you can find something similar... John Williams with Monsignor... Basil Poledouris with Farewell To The King... Miklos Rozsa with The Power... John Barry with Until September...

Jerry really cut his teeth on it too. We could be here all day talking about his amazing work and why so many of his catchy (Explorers) and magnificent (Star Trek TMP, Star Trek V, all the Omen scores) works are attached to the least likely of movies.
