When you watch a movie it helps to understand who the intended viewer is. I think many of the negative reviewers are non-Jews who weren't able to put on their "Jewish goggles" enough to appreciate the humor; or maybe they just don't know the stereotypes enough to laugh at them.
The Jews I know are impressive people. It's also admirable to be able to laugh at yourself, as this movie obviously does.
The Southern-Christian stereotypes were also way over the top, and hilarious. The best part of the movie for me was when the guy goes to the Jewish singles mixer with a ball cap and NASCAR jacket.
There were too many private-parts jokes for my taste and a lot of swearing. But overall I enjoyed this, and hope I learned a little about Jewish culture, even if stereotyped for the comedy value.
If you are easily offended by "mature" content, proceed with caution. I normally would have found this movie offensive, but in this case I wasn't focusing on it. It should probably deserve an R rating.
If you were raised in a large Jewish family (my wife and I were fortunate to be), you would have laughed all through the movie.
I was raised with many aunts and uncles. When they all got together, it was hilarious.
The best line in the Jewtopia was when the nonJewish guy was asked why he would want to marry a Jewish women. His answer was, "So that I will never have to make another decision!"
If you don't understand why that is funny, you are not Jewish!!
