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.
