Check out this clip from the upcoming comedy Jewtopia

Apr. 19, 2012by: Alex Maidy

This is a message to my fellow Jews: we now have our own romantic comedy that centers on the struggles of Hebros and Hegals in a Goy kind of world. If you did not understand what I just said, this movie may not be your cup of matzoh ball soup. But, for the rest of you, take a look at JEWTOPIA.

The film features an all-star cast of Hollywood's Jewish elite actors. Inspired from the international smash hit play seen by over a million people, JEWTOPIA stars Ivan Sergei, Joel David Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jon Lovitz, Rita Wilson, Tom Arnold, Peter Stormare, Camryn Manheim, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Wendie Malick, Nicollette Sheridan, Phil Rosenthal, Christine Lakin, Hayes MacArthur and Lin Shaye.

PLOT: The story is about Christian O'Connell (Sergei) and Adam Lipschitz (Moore) -- two childhood friends who reunite as adults to help each other land the women of their dreams. Chris wants to marry Allison (Hewitt), a Jewish girl, so that he'll never have to make another decision for as long as he lives. Adam is on the verge of getting married to Hannah (Sigler), a woman he is not content with. When Chris enlists Adam’s help in pretending to be Jewish so that Allison will date him, cultures collide and chaos ensues!

JEWTOPIA will be premiering at the Newport Beach Film Festival on April 26.

Eh...Judaism in movies has to be done right, which is to say, subtly, because most modern young Jews' religion comes out subtly. For instance, the Munich discussion/toast in Knocked Up. That's accurate, funny Jewishness. P.S. i'm Jewish.

Anyone think it's little "on the nose" that the non-Jew character in the movie is named Christian?

Oy-vey

It looks like it'll only work because its one big jewish joke. Similar to "Hebrew Hammer". If you took out the jewish stuff, it would have been one BAD gangster film. Like this movie, if you take out the jewish aspect, it would be one BAD romantic comedy.

Unlike "Keeping Up with the Steins" which worked as a movie among movies, and was jewish humor heavy.

Being Jewish myself, i'll still probably end up seeing this movie, but i still hold reserves that i'd actually like it.

(and btw Inglourious Basterds is still the greatest jewish movie ever made)
