A funny walk on the meshugener side for those who can still laugh at religious stereotypes.
| Original Score: 8/10
Under the direction of Bryan Fogel, Jewtopia is hopelessly cheap and stage-bound in a way that pushes the jokes to a higher and more intolerable pitch.
| Original Score: F
Witless and asinine. Not nearly as funny as The Hebrew Hammer.
| Original Score: 4.25/10
An appalling array of hideous ethic and gender stereotypes is what passes for 'humor' in this pitiful excuse for a comedy.
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Rather than finding a fresh approach to ethnic humor, it relies on tired old standbys that have lost their punch.

| Original Score: 1/5
