When Do We Eat? is the story of the "world's fastest Passover Seder" gone horribly awry. It's about an old school dad who's as tough on his sons as his father is on him. On this night, however, one of the boys slips Dad a dose of special, hallucinogenic Ecstasy in order "to give him a new perspective." Meanwhile, Mom brings a handsome stranger to dinner and the kids take sides. By the end of the night, however, Dad's visions turn him into a modern day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness. Of course they're all so stubborn, it would be easier to part the Red Sea. Written by THINKFilm

Very intense, very funny, too many jokes per minute to get in one sitting.
23 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A good movie about Jews for non-Jews. This movie uses humor raw, sophisticated, slapstick to detoxify Jewish stereotypes. It shows the origin of some of these stereotypes in easily understood terms: fear, lust, resentment of parents; same as everybody else. The density of jokes per minute is enormous. Sometimes two and three at a time. There is something to offend every Jew - initially. But the truth in the criticism is evident too.

Great acting performances. The actors are required to simulate so many intense emotions that a mediocre cast would have killed the movie.

Because the movie is so funny it can stand on its own as a comedy but I think Jews will come out of it happier that they are Jews and non-Jews will come out of it wanting to know Jews.
