When Do We Eat? Reviews

Film Journal International

There's something very sweet and real beneath all the bluster, braggadocio, disgust and denial, pushing through as improbably and miraculously as Moses through the Red Sea.

We're basically left with a wild-eyed group of actors who probably had a lot more fun shooting When Do We Eat? than they did watching it.

even with all the strange impractical goings on, as with all in this recent string of popular entertainment culled from authentic orthodoxy, there are moments of sheer breathtaking joy that elevate the spirit of a Jew by speaking to their core.

Litvak's movie almost immediately barges across the line separating the comically absurd from the outright obnoxious.

Thanks to a great cast and sharp writing, When Do We Eat? is a clever comedy with plenty of black humour and irreverence, all of which leads to contemplative thought.

Manages to be broad, mawkish and mean-spirited all at once.

This abrasive Passover comedy-drama is extremely difficult to sit through, and if its makers weren't all Jewish, it would be considered anti-Semitic.

Its strong cast is loud and lively, and the bickering banter has snap and drive.

The movie's most distinctive feature is its cast, which has the fake lived-in comfort of a TV clan.

Despite the fact that the meal served is kosher, the recipe is so hammy that the movie proves pretty indigestible.

But even the film's seeming singularity proves deceptive once it becomes apparent that When Do We Eat? is less a Passover movie than a Thanksgiving or Christmas movie dolled up in Jewish drag.

Even Jewish audiences will be hard-pressed to find something to enjoy in this highly stagy, claustrophobic depiction of a Seder populated by one wacky family that seems to include every stereotype in the book.

Another entry in indiedom's contest to create the most dysfunctional family.
