[Azriel asked glass of milk from the rabbi, unaware that his twin brother had shortly ago eaten meatballs. The rabbi exploded in rage and threw him out of the house. Azriel is confused]
But what did I do? Did you see me eating a meatball?

...should've known: I was all set to like Hagiga beSnooker, but it ends up it's only slightly less stupid than Charlie vaChetzi, with the same actors (Yehuda Barkan, Zeev Revach) playing sleazy scumbags trying to scam each other, one stupider and sleazier than the other, same as Charlie vaChetzi. Then just when you think it can't get any stupider, along comes the requisite meeting-the-relative-at-the-airport scene, always connected with some sort of promise of marriage to some character that has no clue s/he's been promised or has a clue but no intention of marrying the newcomer. The glamour element? I quit watching as soon as the bar owner said, "We have to steal the guy's check back from him".
The previous reviewer called this a cult flick in the Israeli collective memory (or something to that effect). Really? I love Israeli cinema and one reason I love seeing Israeli films is to fill in the "cultural holes" I have as an immigrant, but this is just garbage. I gave it a "2" because Charlie vaChetzi deserves a "1", but I couldn't even come up with the minimum 10 lines to say so.
