Product Details

Product Description


Not much jazz spoken in this 1980 version of the Jolson classic, directed by Richard Fleischer (The Vikings) and starring a very tentative Neil Diamond as a cantor's son who would rather sing commercially than in a synagogue. The soundtrack is tedious, the portrait of L.A.'s music industry preposterous, and Diamond (despite his talents as a singer-songwriter in the real world) can't help but look like a speck on the wall in the presence of Laurence Olivier, who plays his father. --Tom Keogh

3.0 out of 5 stars Total Cheese! Good for a laugh though... April 25 2012
By Bobo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although it wasn't intentionally released as a comedy (I think?) you can't help but laugh when you see Neil Diamond in black face (Al Jolsen is rolling in his grave). The dialogue is pure cheese smothered in matza ball soup. Watch it for a good chuckle then pass it off as a gag gift to some unsuspecting friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars great service Sept. 7 2011
i recently ordered The Jazz Singer DVD, but when opened the case there was no dvd inside, and upon letting amazon know, I had absolutely no problem, I was simply told to return the item and another one would be shipped out. Great feedback and service

1.0 out of 5 stars Luci Arnaz- remove this from your resume March 10 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Ugh. Poor plot development and cardboard characters. For example, he loves his wife sooooo much and discards her sooooo easily? Not likely. Lucie Arnaz, a wonderful personality and normally "good" actress is a cartoon character. Who could fall in love with Neil Diamond with all his angst and schmaltzy whining? Not I, that's for sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bad movie with great music Feb. 20 2004
By Ben W.
This is not a great adaptation of the Jazz singer,the acting is mediocre,the progress of the plot is unrealistic,but Neil Diamond`s great music makes it worth watching.I used to have the soundtrack to this movie,i enjoyed it a great deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL! Nov. 19 2003
By S. West
I can't understand why this movie was so poorly accepted. It was a well acted, well directed film.

I saw this movie for the first time when I was 8 years old and I loved it and I just saw it again today at age 31 and I still love it...It was written great, and its a great movie! Neal Diamond is an excellent singer! Too the people who dont like it...you just dont get it and never will! One of the best movies of the 80's!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't pay the 50 bucks! Aug. 29 2003
Neil Diamond is, well, Neil Diamond after all, in this good story about a Cantor's son/musician trying to break ranks with his Jewish heritage and family tradition. Neil's acting is okay and of course, Sir Lawrence Olivier is great, Luci Arnez does a respectible job in the film as well. What speaks to us music lovers is THE MUSIC, some wonderful tunes and a not-so-bad love story. Now that brings us to the question of "Why is this DVD SO DARN EXPENSIVE?!" It's worth about [money amount], if that and I won't buy it, I still have the VHS version and will store it in a nice cool place and bring it out once or twice a year to watch it with pleasure. Don't get suckered into some auction and pay more than you should for a used version, maybe if we're patient with Amazon, they will bring their price down, hmmm?
