Movie Info

Christian O'Connell (Ivan Sergei) has met the girl of his dreams in Alison Marks (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Unfortunately, Christian told Alison (who happens to be a rabbi's daughter) that his name was Avi Rosenberg, and that he was Jewish- neither of which are true. Desperate to keep up the illusion, he turns to his childhood best friend, Adam Lipschitz (Joel David Moore) to teach him how to "act Jewish." But Adam has problems of his own, with a fiancÚ (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) pushing him closer to a mental breakdown as their wedding approaches. With the best intentions, Adam and Christian attempt to help each other out, but things quickly go completely and hilariously off the rails in this outrageous all-star comedy from the creators of the original hit international play seen by millions.(c) Variancemore

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

You feel sorry for everyone who's working so hard to prop up the farce - especially Mr. Fogel, the director, whose work seems alternately desperate and lost.

Top Critic

To call this winkfest toward an astoundingly retrograde sliver of Judaism offensive would be, well, offensive to the word offensive.

Top Critic

Fogel and co-writer Sam Wolfson - adapting their own off-Broadway play - take ... a lazy approach to the cultural divides they aim to satirize.

Top Critic

It's a movie that thinks it stands for openness and cultural understanding, underneath the poop jokes, when in fact it manages to be offensive to almost everyone, including people who like to laugh at something because it's funny ...

Village Voice
Top Critic

Crass comedy relies on stereotypes and profanity.

Common Sense Media

A funny walk on the meshugener side for those who can still laugh at religious stereotypes.

Audience Reviews for Jewtopia


Jennifer Love Hewitt could sit there and take a dump for an hour and a half and I'd give it at least three stars, although I would be concerned that she might be slightly impacted. Chock full of glorious Jew humor, this was pretty funny. If you don't like Jew humor, watch it anyway because you need to develop a sense of humor. Did I mention that JLH is hawt?

"Alison, I love you. I want you to make every decision for me for the rest of my life."
