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

Funnier than Christopher Guest
12 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so Guest does a different thing than these guys did, but, in a way, this is funnier. With Spinal Tap, you know it's a work of fiction (even if the guys really did play their own instruments). With this movie, Chutzpah is actually a real group. I have a feeling not everything I saw was "documentary," but I also didn't care.

The reality line is blurred so well in this film, it should almost be considered for the mystery genre. It's like the Jewish Reno 911.

Mostly, the music is amazing. I don't think anyone has truly delivered a "documentary musical" such as this ever! So the next time you think there is nothing new to do on film, watch Chutzpah, This Is and think again.
