What a giant, unfunny, 90-minute raging garbage fire this movie was! I think the only reason I watched through to the end was, I was maybe torturing myself into believing I had to see how it all turned out. And, by the way, I am Jewish and I don't take offense very easily. I can appreciate vulgar and/or outrageous humor, but only when it's FUNNY! I read the charming and hilarious book on which this was obviously extremely loosely based. That's why I sought out the movie in the first place. Such a disappointment~! It's just BAD, not even so-bad-it's-good. I stand by my headline. We need not speak of this again!

It's a farce, people, it's a farce!

I laughed at loud many times. If you hate farce and slap-stick humor, don't watch this film. Farces can offend everybody, just like roasts. No one is excluded. Today, everybody is offended and insulted and irate. Red Skelton was a wonderful clown. People today would probably not see the brilliance of his comedy and call him a moron. People think they are so tolerant until....it's not their kind of humor.

Awful & Offensive to everybody
Verified purchase
This sucked. I am NOT a sensitive person, nor am I Jewish. I love comedies, including toilet humor. This movie was so bad in so many ways it was painful to watch. How do you fail at toilet humor? It's the bottom of the barrel in comedy. I guess they were trying for satire, but failed miserably at that as well. The film played on stereotypes of Jews, WASPs, Latinos (the plumbers), and even blacks (the supposedly Jamaican nurse....couldn't you leave us out of this one? Was that asking too much? You had to come for us too?)
Maybe they should've consulted Chris Rock, Dave Chappell, or even Bill Burr in how to poke fun at aspects of a demographic without actually insulting said demographic as a whole. They were supposed to make the audience laugh at the stereotypes the movie highlights. Instead, it has the effect of blackface: where you're left with an inaccurate, warped view of the people depicted. If anything, this film shows the importance of being careful with satire. The point is to use exaggeration, humor, and/or irony to expose or call attention to an issue, in this case Jewish stereotypes. When satire is done as irresponsibly as Jewtopia, you run the risk of misreprenting a particular group & making them look bad, especially to individuals outside of said group who may know little if anything about them.

The plot is ultimately about a nice Jewish woman played by Jennifer Love Hewitt trying to find "Mr. Right." It's a sexually driven comedy about life, love, relationships, & bad marriages. It's hilarious in some parts but with little of a plot. I found the plot to be quite shallow. Most of the film talks more about sex & plastic surgery than anything else. What a waste of good actors in this film. A mediocre movie. I would have no integrity as a critic, if I recommended this film to the general public. I would only say to see it; if you are into these kinds of films were 70% of the jokes are about sex or plastic surgery & the like. The title is also highly misleading as to the actual plot of the film. In general, skip it. Just because a film is very funny in some parts doesn't mean it's worth seeing.

Good laugh!

Funny movie well worth the rental. The plots a bit thin but the jokes were good, particularly if you're familiar with Jewish stereotypes.
