Critic Reviews of "The Jazz Singer"TIME MagazineJuly 28, 2008
In cities where the Vitaphone can be installed and reproduce his voice this picture will eminently repay attendance.VarietyJuly 22, 2008
Undoubtedly the best thing Vitaphone has ever put on the screen.New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
The Vitaphoned songs and some dialogue have been introduced most adroitly.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
It's ragged and dull until the magical moment when Jolson turns to the camera to announce, 'You ain't heard nothin' yet' -- a line so loaded with unconscious irony that it still raises a few goose bumps.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsDecember 31, 2015
Of its time, surely, 'The Jazz Singer' is nevertheless better than one expects going in.Antagony & EcstasyMay 03, 2014
A film whose appeal is almost solely historical, for a multitude of reasons.EmanuelLevy.ComFebruary 21, 2012
The Jazz Singer is not a good picture artistically, but it's historically significant and Al Johnson is truly entertainingBangitout.comJuly 20, 2009
The Jazz Singer is a shallow attempt by a powerful group of straying Jews to clear their consciences.TV GuideJuly 28, 2008
By today's standards, The Jazz Singer is mawkish, crudely filmed, and full of schmaltz. Yet it remains fascinating in its historical value, not only for its technical innovation.ColeSmithey.comJuly 12, 2008
An overrated cinematic turd, and an embarrassment to Jazz.Bullz-Eye.comNovember 17, 2007
There's one thing that neither Neil Diamond nor Danny Thomas nor even Jerry Lewis had in their versions: the unrivaled showmanship and charisma of Al Jolson.Movie MetropolisOctober 14, 2007
...there's no taking away from the movie's heart and Jolson's singing. The Jazz Singer remains a classic of its kind.
