Editorial Reviews

If you're a fan of Tom Green (the skinny white guy from MTV who humps dead animals, among other inane stunts), then you will probably enjoy watching him wander around a Japanese zoo wearing a furry green Godzilla costume, or slurping excessively in a noodle restaurant, or buying used panties from an underground used panties dealer, or vomiting in a hotel bathroom, or just generally inflicting himself upon the Japanese populace. If you are not a Tom Green fan, the The Tom Green Subway Monkey Hour is unlikely to convert you, as it's basically a record of Tom Green making an ass of himself all over Japan. You might, however, enjoying watching Tom Green being attacked by wild monkeys. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

In The Tom Green Subway Monkey Hour special, Tom Green heads to Japan to visit its many attractions and stir up trouble with his unpredictable outbursts and zany antics. Language is no barrier as Green visits a monkey zoo in Nikko dressed up in a Godzilla costume, plays with Japanese snow monkeys on the side of the road outside Nagano, impersonates Elvis Presley in front of a sacred temple in Kyoto and hangs out with a used panty salesman in Tokyo, just to mention a few highlights from the trip. Tom Green creates a hilarious juxtaposition with the more restrained Japanese as his rush hour antics in the subway transcend the language barrier.

When I first watched this special I thought it was the most brilliant thing ever! Now after a while, when I watch it on DVD, I realize that although it may not have been as funny as I thought, is pretty funny! Only a person like Tom Green could so effortlessly pull off a special like this. It never seems like the comedy is forced, but is instead, just who Tom is. My particular favorite bits include Tom stripping out of a Godzilla costume AND his normal clothes in the middle of a Japanese monkey zoo, him spending some time at Japanese temples, his time spent played with the Japanese band Aqua Juice, and the time he spent on a Japanese subway car! ....

I've loved this special since I first saw it on MTV 8 years ago. You really have to have the exact right kind of sense of humor in order to appreciate this, otherwise you will most likely hate it. There really is no one else like Tom Green; he pulls off such childish, ridiculous, immature and often disgusting comedy in a way that I have never seen equaled or matched by any other comedian or actor. This hour-long TV special, as well as the movie Freddy Got Fingered, are really on their own platform that no one else has been able to touch upon and are great examples of Tom Green in his prime. Sure, there are other childish comedians and there are other horribly disgusting/offensive comedy movies, but they're always too obvious or only occasionally funny; with Tom's stuff, the laughs are constant.

I think Subway Monkey Hour may have been Tom's swansong; after around this time (2002) he sort of faded into obscurity and his few attempts at returning to comedy since then have just not worked, not on the level that the 90's - '02 material did. This is a great DVD to watch for nostalgia and/or if you have a very specific sense of lowbrow humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the hardcore Tom Green fans only maybe January 10, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
"What kind of monkeys are those? B'boons?" "AHAHAHAHA! YOU FELL ON YOUR BUM BUM! YOU FELL ON YOUR BUM BUM! - did you see it?" "WHO WANTS BANANAS!!" "Randy Rokakanoknoknok" As you can tell I've watched this thing more than several times and it still is just as funny every time! A few of the segments are not really that funny to me though, like the "wanna see how loud i can whistle" one and a couple others. But on the whole it is classic Tom Green, also interesting to see the various ways in which the japanese react to him!

4.0 out of 5 stars Several Big Laughs August 16, 2012
You almost feel sorry for the exceptionally polite and respectful Japanese. Tom goes everywhere making a loud public spectacle of himself. He keeps it going so long many of them finally snap and try to push or drag him away. Some moments don't work, and Tom seems to sense it. But the ones that do are fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest thing ever. July 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you don't like Tom Green, just watch this. If you still don't think he's funny, then watch it again! I remember watching this on MTV a long time ago, so when I finally got this DVD, I was ecstatic! I have shown it to my friends who have never even heard of Tom Green, & they enjoyed it as well. This segment has truly inspired me to wear a 'Go Fork Yourself' tee to Japan sometime in the future. The Japanese might not get it, but I will!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom's a genius! September 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you can appreciate Tom's off-the-wall unconventional humor then you'll love this. I laugh so hard it hurts. He annoys the Japanese relentlessly on this trip and it's hysterical. No one can do this like Tom. I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Hilarious!!!! March 27, 2003
This is one of the funniest things on tv I have ever seen, and it is so wonderful that is finally out on DVD! It's a cute DVD, very basic: The full special (with some new scenes in it too), scene selection, and Bonus Features. The bonus features had some skits from the show, only some of which were really really funny. I took off a few "points" because of that, even though it is THE BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!!!!!!! Despite that, I would definitely reccomend this to any fan of The Tom Green Show or anyone who likes that kind of real-life comedy. It is so great. Thank you so so much to Tom Green and MTV for making this!!!
P.S. Yeah! I am the first reviewer of this at this sight!

Tom Green was a pioneer in the comedy industry. I purchased this after being in Japan, as I knew it would be even funnier after learning some Japanese and spending time with the locals...and it is hilarious!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some really funny parts, but Tom has done better. Grade B-
Here Tom Green victimizes the poor polite, respectful people of Japan, w/his impolite humor. Some funny stuff, a few really funny scenes, and some slightly funny scenes. Read more
