Is It Any Good?

JEWTOPIA strikes a single note, over and over. It takes a mildly amusing premise about cultural differences, exaggerates it until you want to squirm, and then derails it with crass sexual jokes and profanity. Humor that relies mostly on swear words and repeating body parts ad nauseum, especially "vagina," fail to cover up the lack of any real insight but guarantee appeal to the immature sense of humor. What little plot and characterization are present offer no surprise or insight, as they're mainly propelled by moving from cliché to stereotype and back again.

It was a somewhat successful play in the Los Angeles area first, which probably explains some of the surprises in the supporting cast (Rita Wilson? Really?). Some woeful miscasting aside -- Peter Storemare doesn't pull off an American accent -- they handle things about as well as you'd expect from the veterans. The lead love interests don't convey any real chemistry or seem like they quite believe what's happening to them. Pass.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
