Storyline

Taylor James is NOT the man. Although he's a popular bar mitzvah emcee in New Jersey - a state which he's never been outside of - he can't dress, he can't dance, and he's...well...totally clueless. So when premiere NYC event planner Vanessa Dupree offers to make him a star in the Big Apple bar mitzvah scene, it's an offer he can't refuse. With the help of legendary emcee Sebastian, Vanessa and company make Taylor the mitzvah MAN, and soon they are booking the most lavish bar mitzvah gigs ever. But emcee fame - a world of fast living, demanding customers, and competitive rivalry - has its price... This is the story of a bar mitzvah emcee's rise from lame - to fame - and back again.

This movie is not bad at all.
1 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I didn't plan to write a comment. After I saw how low the rating it is, I am compelled to write a good comment for it.

I don't know how much money they spent on this movie. Of course, this is a low budget movie, it only has Dolby 2.0 sound. However, it is not as bad as some of the big budget movies. It is only better. It doesn't feel like a low budget movie, it is well done. Some of the montage scenes were really good.

I have never heard about Bar Mitzvah before, but this movie is not hard to understand culturally. Some of the scenes made me smile, there wasn't any big funny moments though.

One thing that I don't understand is that why that student interviewed Taylor James, what was the purpose of it?
