Upbeat movie with accurate info about the Jewish faith
22 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

I turned this on about a half an hour into the movie, and was entranced. I wondered if any of the characters were really Jewish and was pleased to see that some really are. It was nice to see Jews portrayed in a positive, non-stereotypical way. I enjoyed the fact that the story wove the secular with the religious aspects of the story, without ridiculing Judaism. A few years ago a movie was made, which admittedly was a satire, about a Jewish superhero, but I found that movie vulgar, and felt depressed that at this time of year, that was the only "Jewish" show to "compete" with all the Christmas programs. I know nothing about basketball, but I could appreciate the "obsession" the boy had with the game, while trying to keep up with his school work. It portrayed a Jewish boy in a Jewish school as a normal kid. It was nice to see Jewish kids going to a Jewish day school instead of some other private school. The only negative, which is why I gave it a 9 instead of a 10, is that it didn't appear to have been filmed in Philly, or the Philly area. I am very sensitive about that, and really find it offensive when other towns (Pittsburgh with it's mountainous background filled in for Philly in a movie years ago with Keanu Reeves as I recall) stand in for Philadelphia. I also found the issue of the "time-out" that the other team tried to pull realistic, in that I think that is the kind of thing a winning team would try to win a game by default. The use of the generator was a great device as a symbol for the cruse of oil that stayed lit for 8 days to consecrate the Temple.
