Movie Info

A popular but clueless New Jersey bar mitzvah emcee goes from lame to fame in this slightly unorthodox comedy starring Judy Reyes (Scrubs) and Tim Peper (The Greatest Game Ever Played). Taylor James (Peper) may be a hit on the New Jersey bar mitzvah circuit, but despite his popularity at the events Tim is barely scraping by. A lifelong inhabitant of New Jersey who has never ventured outside of the state lines, Tim has two left feet and zero sense of style. When popular NYC event planet Vanessa Dupree (Reyes) offers to make Taylor the toast of the Big Apple bar mitzvah circuit, the pair enlists the aid of legendary emcee Sebastian (George Valencia) and sets about booking some of the biggest bar mitzvahs on the East Coast. Despite a drastic change in outward appearances, however, Taylor is still the bumbling wannabe that he was before Vanessa and Sebastian got their hands on him. Now, amidst a sea of demanding customers and ultra-competitive rivalry, Taylor is about to get a taste of life at the top before plunging back to the bottom harder than he could ever image.

Technical assets are predictably sketchy, but the flick maintains a light tone and brisk pace, so that kinda evens things out.

Audience Reviews for Glow Ropes: The Rise and Fall of a Bar Mitzvah Emcee

4.5/10. I was generally a little bored with this film. I did not find the characters appealing and found it hard to stay interested in the film. It's occasionally amusing, but there is not enough good dialogue to make the film worth watching.

This could have been really funny. There are tons of jokes to be made at the expense of people who are exclusively Bar Mitzvah DJs/Emcees. Skip this one.

This film...it wasn't bad but it barely held my interest. Definitely pass it up when you see it on the rental shelf.
