Movie Reviews

Turning point in George's Career
jesuit jhonson | Marengo, Illinois | 03/10/2003

"This is the first special in which George actually expresses his political beliefs, and because of that I believe that this is one of his best. If it wasn't proven that George was a genius before, this one does it. It's funny as all hell, so do yourself a favor and go out and buy this one today."
Carlin in Top Form and Never Disappoints

"It's always a joy to see comedian George Carlin in action. Just when you think he cannot come up with anything more outrageous or funny, he surprises us every time. While I admit that I love his new stuff, I have to say I'm really a bigger fan of his older material. The man's funny either way, but still I love hearing his older material. So you can imagine how happy I was to find "George Carlin: What am I Doing in New Jersey?" on DVD.I owned the album to this comedy concert for quite some time. In fact, I think it's one of his albums that I listen to the most. So it was great to finally see the stuff performed. As funny as he is on CD, his facial expressions are priceless. In this special he talks about everything from Ronald Regan to bumper stickers; from toll booths to keeping people in line; from cars and driving to singles bars, and a whole lot more.There was hardly a single minute where I didn't find myself laughing. You can tell he really loves what he does and the man takes chances. He's not your typical comedian. The stuff he did back then was considered very controversial. Now, he's still a brilliant comedian who never seems to run out of ideas.The DVD is great, being that the picture and sound quality is pretty good for it being so old. There's no extras available, which is a shame. I wouldn't mind seeing a documentary or two, or even a recent Carlin interview. Still, it is a high quality DVD nonetheless."George Carlin: What am I Doing in New Jersey?" is a must-have for any Carlin fan. Don't' even question or think about it. Just pick it up and enjoy the ride. I really wished there were more comedians like him, but what can you do? That's why he stands out so much. He's a man who can never be duplicated. This is a great comedy special that had me laughing from start to finish."
Excellent works

"Works from the late 80's - Mostly about topics such as health trends, driving, and Reaganism hypocrisy. This features the emergence of the openly "angry" Carlin we've seen in the past decade. Here he starts using more openly violent tones and language than in the 70's especially in the "Driving" skit and "Reagan" skit. He even bridges many skits by dismissing the earlier one, saying "That's enough of that!""

"Yes, he is cynical, nasty, insulting, were expecting Wayne Dyer? Being from NJ myself, I have to say that this video may be the funniest video I have ever seen from George. His observations have all the typical genius we have come to expect from him. This will not disappoint. Just put your ego in the backseat and enjoy the ride. Oh, and I see it is not rated, you can expect the most colorful use of explitives (send the kids to bed). Enjoy one of Americas funniest characters!"
