Storyline

The world's first ever Jewish Hip-Hop Supergroup struggles to make the video which will save their record deal from falling through in this highly unorthodox, completely un-kosher documentary musical. Starring Dr. Dreck as George Segal (as Dr. Dreck?), Master Tav, the cantorial student turned rapper; MC Meshugenah, the koo-koo Jew; and Jew Da, the Rastafarian Jewish Philosopher. Also featuring cameos by Gary Oldman, Debi Mazar, Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell and Sharon Osbourne. This short film captures Chutzpah's underdog battle to stake their claim to fame as one obstacle after another rises in their path. Will they live up to the potential of their now-legendary demo tapes? Will they overcome internal tensions and maternal issues? Will they find the elusive dancers and venue for the music video their career hinges on? Not without a whole lot of chutzpah, and luckily these Hebrew homies got it. Written by Producer

Hysterical Chutzpah!
26 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was really funny. I'm not Jewish, but that's not important to get this film. You just have to have a sense of humor. Though I thought this was going to be a Chris Guest type of thing, it was not that it all. In a way, it was better. I think these guys really raised the bar of creating the funniest veil of what's real and what's not. You leave it not really knowing what's what and that is just so terrific.

George Segal is hilarious and it's always a pleasure to see Gary Oldman. The film is also surprisingly clean and so my whole family can watch it. That's pretty rare these days.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who needs a gut wrenching laugh.
