      Dwight Brown Perry has accomplished tonally, artistically and dramatically all he needed to do with this rich melodrama. No wrinkles. No mistakes. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 28, 2022 Full Review Leah Greenblatt Entertainment Weekly [Perry] has a way of making even the most telegraphed twists and overheated dialogue ring with conviction, a consummate entertainer to the end. Rated: B- Sep 23, 2022 Full Review Glenn Kenny A Jazzman’s Blues proves that when Perry applies himself in a particular fashion, his work can stand entirely on its own. Rated: 3/4 Sep 23, 2022 Full Review Shanelle Genai The Root That’s not to say that I wasn’t still hesitant or had certain reservations going in. But it is to say that even for someone as annoyingly predictable as Perry, it’s still always possible to be surprised. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 13, 2023 Full Review Damon Wise Deadline Hollywood Daily A Jazzman’s Blues might be better seen with remote in hand, like a Sunday afternoon cable rerun of one of the classy ’50s melodramas it channels with great technical and music credits but whose intelligence and sophistication it can’t quite replicate. Sep 25, 2023 Full Review Kevin Bourne SHIFTER While Tyler Perry is known for over-the-top drama in his TV shows, A Jazzman’s Blues delivers the kind of drama that pulls at your heart strings and immerses you into the story.

      Audience Member Nice music and 1940s story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Jasmine Amazing heart wrenching and heart warming story of enduring love. Perfectly cast and seamlessly written. A multi faceted modern day Note Book. I would have to say this has transcended Tyler Perry movies for me. I laughed, I cried, I sat on the edge of my seat, I sank into my seat totally overcome by raw emotion leading me to write this review my first ever movie review. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review bryan m I stopped at 3.5 stars just because 4 and up seems like the best of the best to me. This movie was very good though. Good story, good acting and I always love a film set in the deep south. One thing I didn't like was when Miss Leann came back somehow only a few years later there were people who did not recognize her as the same girl, Bucket, they knew before?? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/21/23 Full Review Mike D Music for a start! Great music..but would expect a period film to also adhere to something thats in keeping to the timeline. Opening first 6 mins, it's 1926 , sugar shack barn playing jazz from the 50's So music out of sync. Script totally predicable. Nice photography and locations. But ultimately a poor film Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Neci n I am growing to appreciate romance stories that don't end "happily ever after" because it makes the audience contemplate the character's choices and their own. This story made me think about each of the characters' decisions and find the humanness in each story, even if I disagreed with their extreme melodramatic behaviors. Once the credit started to roll, I accepted where this move led everyone. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Great story, emotional captivating Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
