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

First of all, my crazy neighbor dropped this in my mailbox, so that's how I first learned about 'all the buzz'. The DVD is a total enigma. The film is hilarious and George Segal is in it! Who knew? I wasn't sure if the group was real, but Debi Mazar, Gary Oldman, and Sharon Osbourne all give their seal of approval to Chutzpah ("The World's First Ever Jewish Hip Hop Supergroup"?) and I had never even heard of them!

I think Chutzpah is still pretty underground and they're a bit reminiscent of Citizen's Band minus the acrobatics and politics, although MC Meshugenah, one of the Chutzpah band mates is pretty springy and flexible. I was so intrigued by the DVD that I actually looked up the band online and downloaded their CD from iTunes. So I guess they must be real. There's a song about 'Tsuris' for crying out loud! The music 'represents' and totally keeps it real...in other words, it's really good!

Jewish Rap? It's up and coming eh? I was never really a big fan of rap music, but I realize that it's a perfect genre to express anybody's cultural escapades. This group is legit in my book and their movie could very well be the next cult classic. Keep an eye out for this one film students (and anyone that needs a good laugh!)
