Go See a Jersey Tale, You Won't be Disappointed! !
5 October 2004 | by (elmwood park, new jersey) – See all my reviews

A Jersey Tale is a wonderfully entertaining movie that is potent without being preachy & taut without being tepid. The colorful characters that inhabit the Garden State Universe of (Aspiring turntable artist) Ray Ray Morales have a depth & complexity that belie it's straightforward plot. Whether it's the pork chop philosophies of (Local mid level thug) "Papo" Rivera or the morality musings of (Big Lil' Shot Mob Boss) "Chunks" Colon, I found myself engaged & entertained throughout. Many independent movies have a tendency to forsake humor & reality in an attempt to be politically correct & multicultural sensitive, but a Jersey Tale does neither. Never is this more clear than when Uncle Kutty, owner of the neighborhood pawn shop delivers a heartfelt monologue that sheds light on his present day cagey demeanor & exposes the often forgotten Armenian genocide perpetrated by the Turks during WWI.

Anyone who is a fan of classics such as Goodfellas or a Bronx Tale will appreciate this movie's emotional core & original sense of humor. This is the rare film that sneaks the history lesson & the love story in without losing sight of the original intention, to entertain.

I found myself laughing out loud & welling up with emotion as I watched. Watch it with your Boys, check it out with your girl. Either way - you can't lose. Go see a Jersey Tale, you won't be disappointed.
