Information and Film Reviews for The Jazz Singer the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Flat and uninteresting (if not unintentionally funny) remake of the 1927 classic about a Jewish boy who rebels against his father and family tradition to become a popular entertainer. Stick with the original, this is little more than a vehicle for Diamond to sing.
