Goebbels would have found the depiction of Jews in Go For Zucker promising.
September 1, 2007
It's a beauty, perhaps largely because it's as much about recent history as about its characters' Jewishness.
April 4, 2007
An irreverent, frequently funny clash of cultures which mostly explores the lighter side of what it means to be Jewish.
March 1, 2007
The cast is funny and the script is sharply written.

Watching through American eyes, none of it seems all that funny, or interesting, or entertaining.
August 5, 2006
A brash, energetic, cheerfully slovenly comedy with broadly drawn characters and big performances...
August 4, 2006
A fine farce about discovering the meaning of 'family' under peculiar circumstances.

Zany Zucker proves that 'German comedy' is no oxymoron, and that the country can at last find humor in its cultural and religious divide.
July 13, 2006
Because it's from Germany and we're not onto the tricks of the lead actors, the way this familiar tale plays out is a lot of fun.
April 28, 2006
The most appealing aspect is that it is not politically correct, stirring comedy out of the clash within a culture, as distinct from films that use clashes of cultures for their comedy.
April 8, 2006
As a comedy, Zucker is pleasant and spry but not truly exceptional.
April 6, 2006
A character-driven entertainment that stays just the right side of purely physical farce.
April 6, 2006
A diverting, mildly entertaining movie, far short of provoking the controversy (or hysterical laughter) it apparently prompted during its release in Germany.
March 27, 2006
too weighted with overdressing and fat to travel all that well.
March 25, 2006
Go for Zucker! has one comic trope our capitalist society can definitely understand: the restorative power of a cash bonanza.
March 3, 2006
Although Go for Zucker begins with the title character running, the movie just isn't up to speed.
March 3, 2006
A broad, lowbrow affair, worthy of an American Ben Stiller comedy.
February 23, 2006
Levy exploits the living situation for countless oil-and-water gags, many of which are so corny and played-out that they feel as though they should be accompanied by the cheers of a live studio audience.
February 19, 2006
The humor, in both subtle and slapstick varieties, is fast-paced.
