FILM

1. A JEWISH JOKE

In the film Jewtopia, Christian O’Connell (Ivan Sergei) tells the girl of his dreams (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who is a rabbi’s daughter, that he is Jewish. Desperate to keep up the illusion, he turns to his best friend, Adam (Joel David Moore), to teach him how to “act Jewish.” But Adam has problems with his fiancée (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) as their wedding approaches. The film is an adaptation of one of the longest running off-Broadway plays.
