Editorial Reviews:
Arguing With Myself, a recorded live performance of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, portrays a comedian whose revival of an old-fashioned art has made ventriloquism more relevant to modern societal concerns. Starring his six main characters, from Bubba Jay, a Nascar-obsessed hick, to Peanut, a flamboyant gay monkey, Dunhams puppets have dirty but relatively inoffensive senses of humor that mock the American Dream. One can easily see why Jay Leno champions Dunham, as his skits contain a similar sly sarcasm disguised as wholesome teasing aimed at men indebted to their ugly wives, for example, or people who live their lives working in cubicles. At times, though, Dunhams humor seems to lose its ironic distance, especially as he interacts with puppets like Jose Jalapeno, a Cuban chile pepper, or Sweet Daddy D, a Black pimp, both reliant on the antiquated humor once popularized in cartoons by racial caricature. Since the entire audience in the film is white, it is difficult to assess whether or not African-Americans or Latinos would find Dunham funny. In other words, Dunhams humor isnt overtly offensive enough to make fun of ethnic heritage. However, his skills as a ventriloquist alone make him a fascinating entertainer, and anyone interested in how puppetry and ventriloquism has progressed over the decades would benefit from watching Dunham bring life to his wooden friends. --Trinie Dalton

Breathing life into an elderly curmudgeon, a purple human-like creature from the Micronesian islands, and a self-effacing talking jalapeno on a stick, Jeff Dunham is straight man to some of the funniest partners in show business! His comedic skill and impeccable technique serve as slight of hand however, drawing attention away from the fact that Dunham is a ventriloquist extraordinaire.

It's Jeff Dunham along with his outspoken and often edgy characters: Walter, Peanut, Jose Jalapeno ("...on a steeek!"), Bubba J, and Sweet Daddy Dee in their full, uncut, and uncensored live stage show that will leave you on the floor laughing like no other!

5 out of 5 stars The Review   June 21, 2006
This is one of the best movies I have ever watched. First time I saw it I saw the big purple guy and just then I started to laugh and laughed all the way through it. This guy is hilarious!

5 out of 5 stars Jeff Dunham - Arguing with Myself   June 21, 2006
As usual, Jeff & Crew are great. My wife and I were introduced to Jeff about 20 years ago, and have made multiple trips to see him LIVE at the Improv in DC & Baltimore Md., spending at least $150 per night. This DVD is the best thing you could spend $$$$$ on. I would buy this DVD even if the price was $75, so I could share the experence with all my friends and family. I am creating a Christmas list of at least 10 of these DVD's. I would rate this DVD as a 10 if possible.

Every part of this DVD is GREAT. Even during the bloopers and other segments, Dunham keeps the laughter going. He shows amazing talent and love for his career. It's a guaranteed good time. Well Worth the buy.

I've been a huge fan of Jeff Dunham for over 15 years, and this DVD will make it crystal clear why. He and his friends have snappy comebacks down to a science. Their interaction with one another and the audience must be witnessed to be believed. I especially love that the DVD has a "bleeped" and an "unbleeped" version, too, so I can let my more "reserved" friends enjoy his hilarity! If you like to laugh, you must purchase this DVD!
