Festival of Jewish Self-Hatred
31 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched (but didn't finish), because I thought there might be some fresh take on the Valley Girl theme. What I found was the most vulgar display of Jewish self-hatred ever put on screen.

It's one thing to feel this way inside about yourself, but to put it on screen, you have to hate yourself at a whole new level.

Let's see: Jews are materialistic, adulterous, have low self esteem, vulgar, and pepper their daily conversations with talk of menorahs, chicken soup, and flem. Arabs are sensitive, refined, and loving, with great families.

Not only that, the depiction of the Valley theme was manipulative and false.The days of the Valley being some provincial haven for "white bread," or Ashkenazi "Jewish princess" culture are long over, and most of the Jews now are either Israeli or Persian and look like the Arabic guy in the movie. There's mention of Applebees Restaurant, as if the Valley is known for quaint neighborhood diners. Hardly. It's all Thai food and Mexican, just like Downtown.

Having said all that, the lead actress did an adequate job, and the guy who played the self-absorbed Liberal journalist was excellent.

The photography was nothing special. There is a lot you can do with the L.A. scenery, and they didn't do one tenth of it. How about showing the San Gabriel Mountains behind the skyline? Someone will burn in hell for this one. Most likely the writer. Send us a postcard.
