Audience Reviews for A Jersey Tale

Have you ever walked into a video store two minutes before closing with no idea of what you want to see? The clerks say "we're closing" and you grab whatever is in front of you? Well I just grabbed this movie and headed to the counter. Our main character works at a shoe store and desperately wants to be a DJ. He eyes a turntable in a pawn shop but will never make enough money to buy it selling shoes. So he becomes a gangster. Soon he has his turntable, a girl and the pawn shop. Really. This is an incredibly bad movie. Poor dialogue, poor acting, poor premise, poor me. At least I have one of those monthly deals where I can watch as many movies as I want for one fee or I would really be disgusted with myself. This movie sucks!
