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

Funniest Doc Ever!
25 March 2006 | by vinloSee all my reviews

When I first picked this up, I didn't know what to make of it. Then when I watched it, I couldn't control myself. I laughed so hard, I missed half the dialogue.

Then I watched it again and again and again. Every time I saw it, I picked up on more of the many levels this documentary operates on. This isn't just funny. It's deep. It's poignant and I still don't know what's real and what's not, but it doesn't matter because it's just amazing.

I highly recommend this video for anyone who likes comedy. George Segal (Dr. Dreck?) is the best I've seen him since Fun with Dick and Jane. The other cameos like Gary Oldman, Debi Mazar and Vivian Campbell all combine to create the most hilarious short I've ever seen.
